The NSDI 2.0 proposal seems sound and workable. The authors have been making spatial data infrastructures work for decades. There are other proposals emerging that are basically unsolicited proposals for a specific commercial solution. The NSDI 2.0 proposal opens NSDI work to all technologies and focuses on the critical elements of data interoperability.I think that geospatial professionals should and will get behind NSDI 2.0. As the proposal says, there is a lot of work to do and we all need to be part of it.
