I'm back home from a grueling and invigorating trip to the left-coast to geek on all things 'location'. Unfortunately I got little time to blog myself, but I made lots of notes and am trying to digitize them all. I'll be blogging about some of my own specific announcements that came out at Where2.0 shortly.
Google's Dev Day was in fact the cattle drive I was worried it might be. However, it was still an incredibly fun event because of the hallway track and getting to meet a large number of the Google 'geo' team, as well as various others from other companies.
One of the more mind-boggling things at WhereCamp was Mikel building a mashup into someone else's site. You can now automatically see Google Pano's of Upcoming event locations within Upcoming. I do truly hope that the WebKit party was a blast - looked like it was going to be one based on their pano's.
a couple of highlights off the top of my head:
- Great conversations on the "Gist of an Area" with Travis of Neighboroo, Tim with ThinkWhere/Geocodr
- Being amazed by the skill and wit of Poly9. They type too fast for their own good.
- Lightning talks from GeoTude
- dancing to Viscious Groove
