FOSS4G 2011 Denver– Ideal schedule

I spent a few hours winnowing down my list of desired talks at FOSS4G and came up with the following list. Path dependence (i.e. technologies related to the ones I’m already deploying) were at the top of this list, but I do hope to expand my knowledge of all the options as well. For almost every slot, there were anywhere from 2 to 4 presentations that really excite me. And finally, one of the most exciting (to me) presentations is the last in this list (Lifemapper Moves Forward: Bringing Together Geospatial and Biodiversity Informatics Tools to Save the World)– which I’ll miss because I’ll be flying out at that time. Alas, I’ll have to download the presentation when I get back to Ohio.
