Another slight delay

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.

We have internet, yeah

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.

New Poll: Where did you come from

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.

Q or text balloon

quiznoQuiznos. the sub joint, has these bizarre little trays that are supposed to be Q shaped I guess. They are much more useful as text balloons in my opinion. That is a project for Make magazine, scrolling LEDs in the trays ๐Ÿ™‚

Major calendar update

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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.

Comments and pingbacks

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

In search of comic artist

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).

Nothing tonight

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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.
