Geogad @ Web 2.0 Mapping
I am still buzzed about the Web 2.0 Mapping meeting last night. As regular readers of this blog know, Geogad was speaking there last night. There was a lot of energy in the room, and Geogad’s talk went well. Part of that may have been from the talk and part from the free Togo’s sandwiches available.
For those of you who were not able to attend, the slides from the talk as well as a professionally shot video will be available soon. The link will be posted on the Geogad site to help you find it.
Quite a few people had signed up for the meeting, but some were unable to attend because they had switched the event location. While the Web 2.0 Mapping meetings will all be held at Google through the rest of the year, they will be held in different locations each time. It really puts your mapping skills to the test, but it is confusing. Last month, I was 45 minutes late because I got rerouted through the adjacent Shoreline Amphitheater due to a Jonas Brothers concert. For this month’s meeting, the main Googleplex was packed for a Google Dance. Since that was the location for the last meeting, I am sure that many people saw the traffic there and assumed it was still in the same location.
