Drew, thanks for doing this and I wish I could join you in the fun!

I'd say that heaping praise on Apache at an Apache event would probably only elicit skeptical
cynicism, but maybe also beers. :-) Yet, if you could encourage all to check us out….. :-)

Oh, one thing. A while ago, Propylon, a company, was working on refining OOo for legal work;
many law firms and related use WP 5.x or beyond. OOo had some legal templates but the fact
is that a huge portion of the legal world is unable to budge from the weight of electrons
and paper, however close to museum pieces they be. Yet legal workers want open standards,
open source just like the rest of us. 

Perhaps, in Wash. DC, a receptive audience to such a thing? Esp. among the US CIO office,
should that be possible? :-)
