The strangest conference tat…

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on May 29, 2007

Sometimes you get the oddest bits and pieces when you wander around the various stalls at a conference exhibition. However, I think one of today’s pieces may just win a no prize.

Where 2.0 is a conference about digital mapping and the neogeospatial movement. The conference’s sessions cover everything from using GPS fitted pigeons to map California’s smog, to building mashup ecosystems around Google’s and Microsoft’s mapping platforms. If it’s anything to do with maps and computers, it’s part of Where’s remit.

Why oh why oh why then, did I pick up a paper set of roadmaps of the continental US?

Actually they’ll come in useful nxt week in Florida, as our GPS only has west coast maps!
