Comment: Rumor has it that due to sequestration, travel funds will be very limited for Federal employees who would like to attend an educational event like FOSS4G-NA 2013. Oh, geez, who thought up that one? Save maybe a total of $1,000/person, while losing $$ MILLIONS $$ because dedicated public employees won't have the opportunity to learn how to deploy and use FREE and OPEN Source Software in support of government's geospatial business needs. Absolutely......Brilliant!
