Heading to WhereCamp5280

WhereCamp5280 Hooky Bobbing at GeoCommons Maker!.pngI'm enroute to the mile-high city of Denver that boasts a plethora of geo-talent for WhereCamp5280. Today there is a 'hackfest' at CU Denver Campus, then on Friday a full day of discussion, brainstorming and defining the future of geo.

It's almost half-way between Where2.0 and WhereCamp5280 is stacked to be an interesting discussion of the current state of affairs in what has been called "the year of location". And given the cadre of people that will be coming to WhereCamp5280, such as Waze, MapQuest, WeoGeo, Safe, Google, USGS, ESRI, numerous other geo-geniuses, and of course, a cadre of FortiusOne engineers - we definitely should have some fascinating discussions. I hope if you're nearby you can make it too!
