The 2010 O’Reilly Where 2.0 Conference Call for Participation Is Now Open

Become Location Enabled at Where 2.0

Location awareness is everywhere now, baked into our desktops, iPhones, cameras–even our oil rigs–right from the start. We expect our tools to sense and interpret data to help us locate and visualize everything from a new restaurant to the source of a new millennium plague. Who is leading the charge to the next mapping frontier? How are companies large and small jumping in change the rules in mid-game? And where is the money?

O’Reilly Media is seeking proposals for sessions and workshops from the builders and innovators in the location industry. Are you a mobile maven creating rich information overlays? A GIS veteran mashing up temporal data with maps? An open source developer hacking up a cool visualization tool? A CIO using location information to revamp a public transit system?

If you’re passionate about enabling location awareness in our lives and our work, we want to hear from you. Submit a proposal to speak at Where 2.0 by October 13, 2009.

Topics we’ll be exploring at Where 2.0 2010 include:

  • Mobile Trends and Devices
  • Rich Analysis Tools
  • Augmented Reality
  • Temporal Information
  • Government 2.0
  • Machine Learning
  • Crisis Mapping and Disease Awareness
  • Local Search
  • Cartography
  • Geo Support in Web Application Frameworks
  • GeoStack and GeoBrowsers
  • Mapping APIs
  • GeoTargeting
  • Data Management
  • Local Search and Advertising
  • Protocols and Formats

Where 2.0 is one of the world’s foremost events dedicated to exploring the emerging technologies in the geospatial industry. At Where 2.0, we expose the tools pushing the boundaries of the location frontier, track the emergence of new business models and services, and examine new sources of data and the platforms for collecting them.

Happening March 30-April 1, 2010 at the San Jose Marriott in San Jose, California, Where 2.0 brings together the people, projects, and issues building the new technological foundations and creating value in the location industry. Join with other developers, technologists, CTOs, researchers, geographers, academics, business developers, and entrepreneurs to debate and discuss what’s viable now, and what’s lurking just below the radar. Learn more about Where 2.0.

Important Dates

The submission deadline for all proposals is October 13, 2009.
Early registration opens in December 2009.
Standard registration begins February 2010.

New site, new look

Sunday, November 4th, 2007

In October, I attended the annual NACIS map conference in St. Louis, MO and demonstrated how Adobe Illustrator can be automated via JavaScripting. This can be especially useful for those needing to expand Illustrator’s default capabilities or make Illustrator behave more like the venerable Freehand (may it rest in peace). I created this website to host that presentation, and to capture some of my other projects. Last week Mordy Golding at his Real World Illustrator blog promoted my site and wow, traffic is up. So here’s a new look for a more integrated site.
