Associations/Groups – Association for Downloadable Media

This is mostly for the geobloggers out there. There is a group of well known podcasters/bloggers who are looking at the need for an association of New Media publishers. They have just posted a survey to try to get initial thoughts and determine the need for an association. While most of us do this for fun and only get a little ad revenue (ie none of us have quit our day jobs), I still see a need for an organization that can support education, research, and outreach about the various New Media. As those of you who have joined us at the sessions we have organized at the AAG and ESRI UC know, there is interest, but not always understanding about what we do…this is where I feel that an association of New Media publishers could really make a difference.

If you are interested you can find there survey at
