The NGTC Episode 01 interview with Phillip Davis is the same as the interview in episode 117 of avsp, but I wanted to get it in the NGTC feed. Apologies for any duplication.
So far we haven’t had a consistent schedule for VSTV, but the plan is to take it to twice a month with an episode on the 15th or 16th and another at the end of the month. We will continue to have the “in the field” episodes, but we will be bringing back the screencast episodes, and we hope to try out a few other ideas in the future. The next VSTV episode up on the 15th (a screencast) and then our highlights from the Festival of Maps.
So it is the giving time of the year. Altruistically it is because of the time of year with the holidays, realistically folks are looking for last minute tax breaks…either way, I was wondering what charitable organizations are out there that fall under the Geography or geospstial umbrella. If you know of an organization feel free to leave the info in the comments below or email me with the info. We will include the information that we gather in a future episode of avsp.
Don’t forget to send in your entries to our Geography Awareness Week contest questions by midnight PST, Nov 7. The grand prize is a new silver 4GB iPod nano loaded with all of the VSTV episodes. Two runner up winners will get something from the VerySpatial SWAG shelf.
Kind of busy this weekend…we will hopefully be recording avsp Sunday and I will try to have it up late Monday night. VSTV episode 22 is recorded and will go up early on Wednesday, the Geography of cemeteries. In the mean time head over to the QGIS blog to check out some of their new webcasts to get you up and running with the great open source GIS. It can get you started with the new version 0.9.0.

Apparently there was an issue with both the AAC and MP3 feeds for this weeks podcast which kept it from being downloaded. I have fixed the issue and the episode should be available to your podcatcher very soon. Thanks to Andrew for letting me know about the issue!
The New Media panel for the AAG in Boston (April 08) is turning out nicely and we are going with an education theme. I would like to get one more person on the panel so that I can just moderate (yup, I am that lazy) so if you are going to be at the AAG and you are interested in New Media in Geography Education (formal and informal) send me an email. Also, I will be in the Geography Education student paper competition with a paper on basically the same topic as the panel if you are interested in my spiel.
