Howdy! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. We probably are (ask us later) since we are pushing this week’s episode (469) back to mid-week. It is mostly to do with a last minute schedule change I caused, but a little bit to wait and see what else hits by the Esri UC keynote on Monday.
As you might expect we had planned to run interviews from the Esri EdUC and UC for the main topics in 469 and 470 (and others). Even though we canceled our trip to San Diego this year in mid-June…I forgot to plan something for this week. Add in the last minute schedule change and it may lead to the rest of the July podcasts as mid-week releases. I guess we will find out together on the 20th.
One last note. As a fun bit of nostalgia, watch out on Sunday for Special Episode 72 which a retrospective that highlights the intros from our first 8 years of podcast anniversaries as we head toward our 9th anniversary. It is the beginning of our year long(ish) countdown, first to episode 500 in February and then our 10th anniversary next July.
In case you missed the televised coverage of the 2014 National Geographic Bee finals, National Geographic has been kind enough to share it on YouTube.
We are stuck on the east coast this summer and will not be at the Esri UC for first time since 2006. We hope to be back next summer for a 10th anniversary shindig, but for this year we are missing out on some of the great hallway and exhibit hall conversations we normally bring to the podcast.
If you are presenting or exhibiting at any of the number of user conferences this summer and you would like to talk about your project or product, please contact us at podcast at veryspatial dot com. We can schedule a phone, Skype, or Google+ interview for sometime in July.
It is that time of the year again, time to sit back and watch some super-smart youngsters rock our collective Geography socks off. Thursday night the finals of the National Geographic Bee will be aired at 7:00PM EDT on the National Geographic Channel. This year Soledad O’Brien steps into the spot of long time host Alex Trebek.
Here is a look at this year’s state (and territory) winners who traveled to DC for this week’s event.
