Ignite Spatial: Boston 2

Note: I received this email as an IgniteSpatial participant. I have worked with Guido before at a couple of PodCamps and well as his inaugural FiberCamp. I will volunteer to help at the registration/welcome desk as this is something I like to do and have a great deal of fun with.
