“Neogeo” vs. GIS still going strong. Dangermond replies?

Filed under: map, Web 2.0 — Tags: , — ubikcan @ 11:08 am

The bad words between “neogeographers” and Big GIS are still flying around as evidenced by a post today on It Is What It Is:

Hey GIS programmers: barbarians are at the gates! Do us a favor and let a few in!

Today is Day 2 of the Mike Goodchild extravaganza on what he calls volunteered geographic information (why all the names? surely we have enough with geoweb, locative media, map hacking, crowdsourcing, neogeography, etc.). Anyway, according to the program today at 10:30am PST Jack Dangermond is scheduled to provide commentary. Unforch, the VGI event is not live blogging or anything that web 2.0-ish, but perhaps someone will be good enough to summarize what he says?

So, will we get the Dangermond of “ESRI is the geoweb” or will we get the Dangermond of “you can’t trust the geoweb“?
