Hi All -

Hope that you all had a good Presidents' Day and long weekend for some.

Some things to be aware of this week:

   - ESIP and innovation<http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/ESIP_and_Innovation>
   emerging as the focus of the ESIP Summer Meeting theme. The discussion is
   being framed with a set of characteristics, defined in the *Innovator's
   DNA*: observing, questioning, experimenting, networking and creating

   In order to narrow this a bit, I would love more input from the ESIP
   community on the
wiki<http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/ESIP_and_Innovation> around
   innovation as it applies to your own work.
