This week’s episode will be up Monday. I have been derelict in my editing duties due to a busy weekend visiting family and watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. Come back in about 24 hours for this week’s conversation with Joel Campbell of ERDAS.
We found our way back, once again, to Geography Awareness Week. As you are probably aware, this year’s theme is Freshwater and we will be touching on the topic in our guest post on the MyWonderfulWorld blog on Wednesday, but we have our standard fair of daily podcasts planned for right here on veryspatial.com as well. We have quite a few interviews with academic departments and educators from the recent GeoINT conference that we will be highlighting through the week along with a few posts about the joys of Geography. And as always we will have a special podcast episode on Wednesday for GIS Day. We will be kicking everything off tonight with Episode 278 that will highlight our conversation with Merrill Johnson of the University of New Orleans. Be sure to check it, and the rest of Geography Awareness Week content, out this week.
Also, along with Geography Awareness Week this is also American Education Week sponsored by the National Education Association.
Last reminder (on the blog) that our 5th anniversary live show will be Wednesday night (7/14) at 5:30 in Room 30E. We will have great guests, lots of gaffes, and a little Great Big Sea playing in the background. While we will be announcing the winners of our 5th anniversary contest, we will also have a drawing for door prizes for those folks who attend. Door prizes will include an iPod Shuffle, Amazon gift certificate, ThinkGeek gift certificate, a flash drive with our logo, and who knows what else (I don’t, cause I forgot what else Sue and Frank suggested).
Hope to see you there!
With a few thousand of us heading to San Diego I thought I would highlight where we will be during the week in case you want to check out some of the ‘jive we are laying down’. If you are a presenter or company interested in an interview, contact us via email, twitter, or skype and we will set something up.
- Sue and Jesse will be wandering the EdUC
- Frank, Sue, Jesse and Barb will be at the UC
- Jesse or Sue is going to try to make it to the Imagery talks this year.
- Monday after the keynote Jesse will be giving a Lightning Talk at around 4:30 in Ballrooms 20C&D entitled Principia Geographica—Or How I Found Data and What I Did to It When I Found It
- Jesse will then run over to the Map Gallery
- We will be at the Spatial Humanities SIG on Tuesday at 5:30 in room 30D
- Frank presents at 3:15 on Wednesday in Room 28A on Practical GIS Data Dissemination
- Sue also presents at 3:15 on Wednesday but in Room 24A on Digital City Initiatives for Small Municipalities and Rural Areas
- Our 5th anniversary live show featuring Stephanie, Elvin, Don and Dale will be on Wednesday at 5:30 in Room 30E
Otherwise we will be getting our annual workout of running between sessions, to interviews, and around the Gas Lamp district.
We have finalized our line-up and plans for next week’s live show at the ESRI International User Conference. The show is in the book for 5:30PM on Wednesday (7/14) in room 30E of the San Diego Convention Center. There will be door prizes for those at the show including an iPod or 2 and gift certificates to Amazon, ThinkGeek and possibly a local eatery. We will also be announcing the winner of our 5th Anniversary Contest for a game console, though we won’t have that as a door prize. Schedules permitting we will have the following guests:
If we have enough WiFi bandwidth/signal we will stream the liveshow at uStream for those who can’t make it to San Diego, but we will definitely have the audio up for Episode 261 on July 19.
We hope to see you at the #ESRIUC!
Just a heads up that we are moving the release of the podcast to Monday evenings through the rest of the month due to travel and general craziness. We should be back to the normal Sunday evening schedule in August for your Monday morning listening pleasure.
