[This] was a great experience for us. We commend you for asking us. Continued good fortune with your program.
[What] you are doing at LUGOD is most impressive. As I sat listening to the introductory portion of the meeting, I was imagining bands of penguinistas having their local meetings all over the world, rising up to challenge the hegenomy of the established software order -- viva la penguin! Thanks for the invite -- it was fun and a real eye opener!
