I was going to let people find our new forum topic on their own until Adena posted about the change to NASA’s mission statement (via the NY Times). Our forum topic (and associated poll) asks what you think about NASA leaving satellites in the closet while they look to the stars. Head over and let us know what you think.
Yeah, we made it through our first year! And what a year it’s been. I don’t think we had any idea how the podcast would take off and grow when we recorded that first episode last July. We’ve just been so excited and amazed at the number of people who listen and visit the website, and it just keeps growing! Over the last year, we’ve gotten to talk to some amazing people in the geospatial community, and we finished up the first year strong, with Peter Batty of Intergraph featured on the one-year show. We’d also like to thank ESRI, for sponsoring us since the end of February, which gave us the means to attend some really great events, like the Developer Summit and Where 2.0.
We’re looking forward to this year, and right off the bat we’ll be heading out to San Diego to attend the ESRI User Conference, and we’re already setting up some great interviews, so we’re pretty excited about that. I hope you will all continue to listen and check out the website, especially our new forums, and keep the emails and feedback coming because we love to hear from you!
Thanks to all of you for a really great first year of A VerySpatial Podcast!
