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.

In addition to the 5 entries from answering questions you can also get 2 entries by emailing us a copy of your promotion/flyer for your GAW or GIS day events. You can get 5 entries by emailing us a 30 second audio or video promotion for you GAW or GIS day event. Feel free to email for more details. The contest is open world wide.
