Podcast delay

Posted on

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 […]

Can’t make it to the Esri UC this year, but…

Posted on

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 […]

Outtake: Jesse makes a terrible sound

Posted on

Since I don’t put together a highlight reel of our outtakes at the end of the year anymore, I figured I would start sharing them as I cut them out of an episode. This week I destroyed the flow and disabled Sue for almost a minute with nothing more than a sound.

A Very Spatial Road Trip: Day 5

Posted on

Sorry for the long delay between the post for day 4 and day 5.  Like most travelogues, not everything goes as smoothly as anticipated and documentation gets overridden by circumstances. Then, we got distracted by the ESRI User’s Conference and then by all the stuff we didn’t get done back home because of the Road […]

A Very Spatial Road Trip: Day 4

Posted on

One of the really interesting things about driving across the US is that distances seem to get longer when you go West.  They’re not any longer, obviously, but there does seem to be more ‘openness’ between places.  As a colleague of Frank’s said, “After Kansas City, there’s a whole lot of nothin”.  Luckily, we found that axiom […]

A VerySpatial Road Trip: Day 3

Posted on

Day 3 we started in St. Louis.  The night before we found this great restaurant called Annie Gun’s through Yelp, a smart phone app that can find great food and accommodations along your way .  Yelp can really knock it out of the park and has so far on this trip, not least is the example of Annie Gun’s.
