Every now and again we receive or read geospatial news stories that make us wonder if they put the technology and its developers and users in the best light. This week we ran into three such stories and will try to find a silver lining, that is, a value to the geo community or the news reading public. As a tease, they involve Microsoft, Samsung and Esri.
Attend an Esri Dev Meet Up to connect with other developers to discuss geospatial technology and their development languages. This free event is being held in select locations across the United States through May 2011 and includes a key presentation, lightning talks, and a networking social.
