We have set up a Skype voice mailbox just as we said we would…5 weeks ago. So, for those of you on Skype, send your comments and questions to my account at jesse-veryspatial and if you aren’t on Skype just pick up your phone and call 304-756-8125. As with any VOIP the sound quality isn’t the best, but it is sound We apologize for the fact that it is a long distance number, but most people have free long distance on cell phones now and this also gives you a reason to go download Skype.

I noticed this yesterday, but I completely forgot to blog it. Howard Butler’s second podcast is out and he interviews James Fee of the popular Spatially Adjusted blog. They discuss a good bit of the state of GIS and a nice interlude where they discussed the joys of command line ArcInfo and the explosion of ArcView when it hit 3.0. I think Howard was a little overly critical of his first podcast where it was just him and a microphone, but that is just my opine

The non-sense continues. To revisit this issue of high res imagery and security yet again visit Internet News Article | Reuters.com. This data is, and has been, available through contractors for some time now. Even back into the early 90’s there has been imagery available that was high enough resolution to make out many of these things are concerned about. We will continue to be grouchy as it all moves forward.
