Well we have been talking about getting the forums up and running for some time now. We finally decided that it is better to get it out there and let folks let us know what it needs. Head over to forum.veryspatial.com and register and start talking today. Expect issues for a little while as we figure out the spam filters and the whole moderating thing in general.
There are only a few hours left to get the answers to the five questions and enter our anniversary contest. All entries must be emailed by 12:00PM PST (GMT -8) on July 18, 2006 to contest at veryspatial dot com.
Episode 52 will be up in the next few hours and the last Where 2.0 interview (really a post interview that we did last Firday) with Talent, makers of Cruiser, will be up mid-week due to the need to get a grant proposal out the door. Sorry about the delay.
Even though Verizon said it wouldn’t be up for another week, when I plugged in my modem the connection was live and stable. We should be through the majority of moving this weekend, so hopefully we will be back to blogging form next week.
Until then we have two great episodes coming up, including a discussion with Peter Batty of Intergraph for our 1 year anniversary (we didn’t actually plan it that way, it just happened). We will be talking with him next week so keep an ear open for that one.
We want to know where you began your interest in Geography or geospatial technologies. Did you start off in some other field and happen upon the importance of being ‘spatial’, or did you know where you were all along? Head over to the front page of VerySpatial and let us know your roots.
I apologize for not having episode 51 up on time. It is a great interview with John Tolva of IBM. Look for it Monday.
Update: I have found how to make WebCalendar allow subscriptions. If you are using an iCalendar based software use http://www.veryspatial.com/calendar/publish.php/?user=public as the subscription address and you should receive all updates to the calendar as we publish them.
We have just added over 20 new events to the calendar, so be sure to check those out to figure out where you want to take your vacation this year
We are primarily pulling from the AAG, GITA, and URISA calendars to fill out our calendar. If you know of any other organizations or companies that keep lists of upcoming events please let us know so we can include their announcements in our calendar.
Update: NOW comments work without a login. I apparently forgot to uncheck a box on another page in the options. Happy commenting.
I am going to give it a try. I am opening up comments and pingbacks/trackbacks. It is still possible you will get kicked over to moderation before your comment appears, but the spam filters finally seem to be working well. Fingers crossed people
I have wanted to work with someone on a weekly four panel comic to go along with everything we cover on the podcast and blog for a while now, I just haven’t been able to find someone who has a drawing style that I am into. So if you draw or know someone who does (and that has time to get out a weekly comic) send me an email me and we’ll see if things work out. Interested in what drawing styles I am into? Head over to my somewhat outdated list of webcomics that I read (not all of which are appropriate for all ages).
