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 Head over to my somewhat outdated list of webcomics that I read (not all of which are appropriate for all ages).
We just got back from the Where Fair and are crashing for the night. We had quit a few GREAT talks with folks, speakers and participants, today, but I don’t think that I will have any audio ready to post tonight as I will be asleep in about 20 mins
I would like to say hi to all the geobloggers that we didn’t see at the BOF tonight cause there was just too much stuff going on to do it all.
We want to celebrate our one year anniversary by giving you the chance to win an iPod Nano or some VerySpatial swag. First, the rules…listen to episodes 46 to 50 to find out the answers to the following 5 questions:
1) What was Frank’s first episode…
2) What is Sue’s favorite flavor of ice cream…
3) What is the name of the VerySpatial Bear/Mascot…
4) Who was our first interviewee…
5) How should you greet people on GIS Day…
All answers must be emailed to us by July 18, 2006. Emails that provide all 5 of the correct answers will be included in the random drawing to determine the Grand Prize winner of the iPod and winners of the other prizes/swag. Only one entry per person. Good luck and let us know if you have any questions.
There were a couple of scary minutes where an out of date plug-in broke the database connection, but everything seems to work after some button mashing. If you find any problems other the general lack of posts lately, let me know.
I forgot to activate this poll a few weeks ago when I created it to go with our Desktop GIS episode, but it is always a relevant question. What is your desktop GIS package of choice? I think we know who will end up with the top spot, but I am curious how the distribution lies within our listeners/readers. Head over to veryspatial.com and take the poll.
