We were accepted by Podcast Bunker to be included in their directory. Podcast Bunker, unlike most of the other directories, chooses podcasts based on the quality of the podcast. This makes me, as the sound person on the podcast, ecstatic of course.
What this means to you, our existing listeners, is that you now know about Podcast Bunker, so head over and take a look at some of the great podcasts they have listed.
This morning I sat in on THE session for geographers, it was on geospatial technologies and landscapes. A farily good session from my perspective. Today’s posters are fairly good as wellÃ¢â‚¬Â¦even included a few archaeological uses of soil (all from BYU). This afternoon was a little more quiet as I meandered through sessions, though nothing exciting. I had hoped to bump into a colleague that I like to harrass when I see her (she decided not to come to WVU when she was offered a position) but only her posters could be found, no sign of her. I fly out far too early in the morning and of course lose 2 hours going back east…weep for me 🙂
UmmmÃ¢â‚¬Â¦yeah. So today, I skipped the morning, but sat in on a session in the afternoon on erosion and runoff (under the soil physics section – S01). I have only recorded on interview so far and it doesn’t sound great. We were standing in front of a poster (use of handheld hyperspectral sensors in recording soils information in a profile) in a room that was quite busy, 2 people talking right next to us, and, most importantly, recorded with the iPod. I will try to clean it up, but I will try to corner people in quieter areas. Another poster presenter I wanted interview was presenting on soil in subacqueous landscape, but I didn’t want to seem like a stalker.
Today’s posters were a little more interesting to me, plenty of geography, especially geostats, most of which were out of Florida, Sabine Grunwald’s lab I would guess since she was second author on a few. Tomorrow there is a session on geospatial tech and soils that will be attending. Til then.
I apologize to those of you who are having issues obtaining Episode 16 with iTunes. While this doesn’t seem to be a wides pread issue, until we can find a remedy to the problem please direct download Episode 16 from the avsp podcast page if your client gives you an error.
Earth Observation and Geospatial Technology for Civil Society…EOGEO is somewhat related to our topic of community mapping this week as their mission is to “provide rapid access to geospatial data content, tools, and services for NGOs, aid agencies, charities, and individuals via the internet and electronic media.” The projects the nonprofit is working on include:
These are just some of the web based projects included on the site. To find out more about the EOGEO efforts or how you can become involved or support EOGEO visit eogeo.org.
I am skipping out on sessions right now, but I will head back in a few. Salt Lake City is still a nice town (I was here in March for the NRCS cultural resource specialists meeting). The conference seems a little smaller than I expected since it is three groups at one conference. I am use to the 4000 or more people wandering around at the Society for American Archaeology and Association of American Geographers conferences.
Also, there are a lot of posters, in fact it seems to be a 1:1 ratio between presenters and posters (I might do the math later if I get bored enough).
After my comments on patents recently I was gleeful to hear the gents at TWiT echo my feelings on the ambiguity and overlap of patents. It was around the 22 minute mark in Episode 29.
I am not entirely sure it was actually corrupt, but the current version is good.
I uploaded the podcast before I left, and just downloaded it to make sure it was ok…it is not. We will try to get an uncorrupted version up as soon as possible. Until then I will try to break the link so that folks don’t keep downloading the bad file.
