A couple of days ago, Tim O’Reilly published an interesting piece entitled “The State of the Internet Operating System” I’m not going to say a whole lot about it, other than to say it touched on a lot of areas. He talked about mobile, location based services, platform integration, abstractions, and a bunch of other stuff. It’s an interesting read and I find myself mulling it over more than most other things I read in the tech world. Give it a read. I think it has a lot of applicability in the light of some of the transitions we’re seeing in the geospatial world.
