I still have a spot for a blogger or podcaster (or just someone who is interested in talking about blogs and podcasts) who plans to attend the AAG meetings in Chicago in March and who is interested in participating in a panel session on the use of these new technologies. If you are interested please email me at Ã¢â‚¬Ëœjesse at very spatial dot comÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
This is an interesting list of audio made available by MIT ranging over many areas of study. Check that out at MIT World on LearnOutLoud.com – Your Audio and Video Learning Resource.

I just realized that we have not actually blogged James Fee’s Planet Geospatial. We mentioned it on the podcast, thought we had here…I was wrong. So…
Planet Geospatial is a web based RSS aggregator that pulls together all of the geospatial technology related blogs that James has uncovered (he offers up his OPML file for those of you using a software aggregator). This page acts as a great one stop for a variety of information sources.
Very pretty. They don’t mention geography, but U think the image on the monitors says enough!
Want to know what we are talking about in the podcast each week? Don’t want to rush to the blog to find out? Well, then sign up for the shownotes listserv. Send an email to email@example.com, no subject or content required. To unsubscribe send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not exactly spatial in the way the conducted it, but it is easy to see how it could be a significant variable in their work. The Census of Marine Life (COML) looked at over a 100 years of prices of seafood to infer impacts such as over harvesting of marine species. A great use of the historical record in an outside the box scenario. The detailed press release is available as a pdf from the COML website

John Krygier pointed us to Hopeworks, a program in Camden, NJ whose mission includes reducing the dropout rate and to create hope for the future. They attempt to do this by engaging students through web and GIS services. The site is impressive and the concept is great.
They also have a position open for their GIS Director, a great GIS and society position for those interested.
I will be heading to the Agronomy/Soils/Crop conference in Salt Lake City in a couple of weeks (which means we won’t be going to Applied Geography). I will be putting up posters while I am there, but if anyone is going to be at the conference, or just live in SLC, a meetup could be arranged. Email me if you are interested, if we put something together then I will post the info by Nov 5 and mention it in podcast 16.
