First you were questioned about milk, then the geeks were asked about root, but the question that has been around for millinea from back seat drivers…got map? Head over to the VerySpatial Store and check out our new ‘got map?’ products. Since this is a Cafe Press shop there are tons of product options, so if you don’t see an item that you want with the logo on it email us and we will add it to the site.
This is a series of follow up conversations that Sue and I had during the Podcast Symposium held at Duke University.
An interesting online atlas project that has been around a while. Flash based, it links cartographic product with 3D models of features. Take a look at Theban Mapping Project
So the conference is over and it turned out to be a great blend of academic and applied perspectives. The morning session was on the legal issues surrounding copyright issues that impact podcasting and the lunch session was a single presenter who dissected the word broadcast and then touched on podcasting. We skipped out on the last session, podcasting and journalism, to start the long drive back. The folks at Duke were nice enough to show us their immersive environment/6-sided cave. Apparently if we had been good and stayed for the meet and greet on Tuesday we would have seen it. Again, check out the conference info and recordings at http://isis.duke.edu/events/podcasting.
On Sept 25 a new GPS satellite was launched which was the first of eight new GPS satellites. More information is available via Telematics Journal
We skipped out on the Triangle podcasters and the meet the speakers thingies, the hands on was fairly informative. Many of the things they talked about are the things I am trying to do and will hopefully have in place soon. I, of course, hoped that I would have our sound set up more or less to a good place by Ep 10 which ended up being a step back with the echo and noise in the room. If you are interested in watching the streams as it occurs or after it is completed head over to the podcasting symposium site.
I hope that we will have a special edition about the symposium put together soon. To keep it primarily in the pervue of VerySpatial we will try to steer toward location-shifting.

The sessions have been great so far. It is being held in a high tech auditorium at Duke in the Fitzpatrick building. This is an academic perspective on podcasting with a few sessions on more hands on issues. The only downside so far is 1 guy who has been part of 2 panels that is just reading his presentation, without any discernable inflections…you know, like I sound on the podcast
To learn more or to listen to the symposium while it is going on head to the Duke Podcasting Symposium site.

The ESA will soon be launching a new satellite to measure the ice levels at the poles to determine if the prediction that global warming is impacting ice levels is true. From the article, the main sensor will be radar.
