Subject RE: ApacheCon Austin keynotes (and other stuff)

How about Jono Bacon. He's got the open source creds but his new gig at XPrize is a fascinating
demonstration that what we do here in open source is akin to the processes needed to create
huge innovation leaps. If we were to pair that with some bigwig at a research org then we
can do the full story from invention through innovation to production (I'm assuming production
is a given with the ASF).

I can fish around for a research bigwig if you want, but we have plenty of people around here
more directly connected to that world too.

Thanks, Chris.
Rich:  I've added Chris's note to both the etherpad and the wiki.

My big suggestion here was Andy Terrel - I think he would be fantastic. He’s the Chief Scientist
at Continuum Analytics (based in Austin) and on the board of the Num Focus foundation working
on Scientific Python
