For February's event, we are grateful to say that we have one lovely presentation scheduled thus far.
However, I'm writing to see if any of you new members might also care to share come February 17th. March and April seem to be filling up but February needs your help.
If you have an relevant, professional presentation to deliver to the group for 15 minutes (plus 5 minutes of QandA), please respond to this note ASAP. Also, feel free to forward this onto anyone who might be interested.
Some WebMapSocial group/event PR:
Typical attendance at one of our events averages around 60 people
We produce audio podcasts of each presentation, aggregate it to Directions Magazine website (a sponsor), and email it to all our group members; this exposes presentations to upwards of 20,000 relevant persons
WebMapSocial members are developers, entrepreneurs, engineers, business executives, programmers, and other professional types
Some of our notable presentations in 2008 were: NASA Ames World Wind project, Mapufacture, Skout, Google Maps API, REI, KQED Quest, Planet 9, Skyhook Wireless, Loopt, Eye-fi, Earthscape, Yahoo Fire Eagle, and OpenStreetMap
Thanks for your membership and I look forward to hearing from you.
Greetings! Thanks for your interest in our group. We're glad you're here. Our group is about sharing, teaching, learning, and networking around current and future web-related geospatial and social networking applications and technology. We meet regularly on the third Tuesday evening of every other month at Google in Silicon Valley, California. For two hours we build fellowship around web 2.0, mashups, maps, programming, GIS, entrepreneurship, LBS, imaging, social networks, well-funded and unfunded companies, and other goodies. Presentations run the gamut of our community: from hardware to web-based applications, hackers to scientists, start-ups to billion-dollar companies. Most of all this Meetup is an opportunity for people who spend a lot of time facing screens to face each other and talk about what flies and fails in tech.
