ESRI Podcasts

esriI guess ESRI has decided to join the fray with some of their existing audio/video content from the ’05 User Conference. This is analogous to IT Conversations from Where 2.0. I haven’t listened to any yet, but I think ESRI should speak to Doug Kaye of IT Conversations since he is already supporting quite a few tech conferences and it would place the information from the UC in a more centralized location where others, outside of the traditional GIS community, might find it. I would still like to see a link to their employee bloggers…with a disclaimer that the blogs are opinion of course. Either way this is a nice step into this new media…technology…podcasting.

The GISuser Blog – GIS & Geospatial news

I know that I am behind on mentioning other blogs here, because Glenn over at GISUser.blogspot.com mentioned us before I got around to him. In this case there is more than one site to blog since Glenn has his own blog, but he is also “the founder & Managing Editor” of GISUser and other news/ezine sites. I know that both Sue and I have trolled the site regularly and I always point folks to this site as a great place to keep up with job listings.

In his blog he points out quite a few interesting tidbits, most of your standard bloggy lore, but it is joined by insight from a knowledgable industry insider and the contacts of an industry news representative.

Hobu Podcast 2 out now

I noticed this yesterday, but I completely forgot to blog it. Howard Butler’s second podcast is out and he interviews James Fee of the popular Spatially Adjusted blog. They discuss a good bit of the state of GIS and a nice interlude where they discussed the joys of command line ArcInfo and the explosion of ArcView when it hit 3.0. I think Howard was a little overly critical of his first podcast where it was just him and a microphone, but that is just my opine 🙂

To give the podcast a listen head over to Hobu.biz.

A New Directions

Directions Magazine’s (now Directions Media) website received a face lift over night. They have added a new magazine entitled Location Intelligence Magazine to their existing Directions Magazine and AllPointsBlog and a changed few other things.

Geography for Travelers

Alan Lews is a professor at Northern Arizona University who has a Geography podcast entitled Geography for Travelers. He has beaten us to two things. First, he posted his first file a few hours before we did. Second, he is using his podcast to support his educational endeavours. We won’t have our first classroom episode out for at least a month. Color me green my friends for I am envious.

Dr Lew will be teaching Regional Geography of Tourism and Recreation using the podcast this semester. The first class is already up and I am looking forward to the rest of the semester (who would have thought that I would miss classes while I am working on the dissertation…go figure).

voyeurism

As I pointed out in the podcast, VerySpatial was the first Geography podcast in the US while ventriloquy is the first over all (in Singapore). This podcast is attached to the blog voyeurismwhich focuses on Geography education and the author’s journey towards their dissertation. Head over to the blog to check it out.
