Our 2 year anniversary contest, announced on this weeks podcast, has been delayed due to a post-semester lethargy. But never fear you will soon have your chance to win goodies. More details will be available in episode 96 this Sunday.
I am thinking of doing a show where we share tips of various software that we use everyday. But before I try to talk Sue and Frank into it, I was wondering if others have tips they want to share or if you are looking for a software tip in your spatial lives. If you have a something you would like to share post a comment to this post with your tip or tech question.
Based on the tips you provide, or the questions, we will decide whether to do an all encompassing tip show or if we should break it up into different shows based on software or technology.
We are thinking of doing a live show at the ESRI UC on Tuesday or Wednesday. If you are interested in joining us on the mic as we chat about the conference, any announcements, or just about anything…please email me at jesse at veryspatial dot com by Friday (May 11). If we have takers we will arrange a time and request a room.
Also, if you are interested watching such a circus email me so that I know there will be an audience. We will have a time nailed down in the next couple of weeks if there is interest.
Apparently I forgot to change mp4 to m4v before I posted VSTV episode 15 so that it wasn’t accessible….whoops. This minute or so montage of the hearts around Union Square in San Fran is now downloadable
If any geobloggers or AVSP listeners are planning to be at ISDE5 in Berkeley June 5-10 let me know. It would be great to get together for dinner one evening and chat. I will even leave the microphones in my bag
So we Sue and I are in San Francisco attending the AAG. I have already hit a session but we got in during the afternoon so we missed some of the earlier sessions. We are staying at the Parc 55 right across the street from the Hilton, but I hadn’t paid attention to where the Location Intelligence conference was taking place until we checked in and saw that it just downstairs…kind of cool, though we haven’t bumped into any of the Directions folks so far.
We may have a daily wrap up later tonight, but more likely it will wait until Wednesday after we have had a full day of presenting and partaking.
As we mentioned on the podcast this week, we are trying something new by teaming up with small geospatial businesses to give them a little exposure and to provide you, our great audience, with a discount on products we think are interesting. This month we are working with GeoToys, a great site for Geography based games, puzzles and toys. Over the next few weeks we will highlight a few of their products that we think are pretty cool, but the real upside is that you can get a 20% discount when you use the coupon code “veryspatial” when you check out at geotoystore.com.
Next week at the AAG I would like to put up a poster during the Geospatial Technology Event with a little info on the community and the technologies (blogging and podcasting) that enables our social networking frenzy. As part of the poster I would like to include the names, logos and links of the sites that are interested. If you would like your site included on the poster please email Jesse your site name, logo (if you have one), link and a one sentence description of the site. Please send these materials no later than Thursday April 12. I will put a draft of the poster up by Saturday and I will print it on Monday.
Well, we tell you about upcoming events every week…we even update the calendar occasionally, but we are curious how often you get to hang with your fellow geography geeks at geography conferences or geospatial tech events. Social networking 1.0 at its best. Take the poll and let us know how many conferences you are going to attend in 2007.
