Where 2.0 Registration Open – Discount for GEB Readers

Where 2.0 Conference LogoThe O’Reilly Where 2.0 Conference for 2007 will be held again in San Jose, California on May 29-30. Registration is now open. This is the conference to attend if you want to meet and hear leaders in the developing Web 2.0 mapping technology world. Last year all the major service providers (Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, MapQuest, etc.) and even major GIS players (ESRI) were in attendance. For an idea of what its like from a Google Earth perspective, look over my notes from last year’s conference: Day 1 and Day 2 . Visit the conference site to learn about it from a broader perspective. You’ll note the Google Earth / Maps teams were there in force. No word yet whether there will be another Google Geo Developer Day where Google held a special event at the Googleplex a day early and invited Where 2.0 attendees.
Google Earth Blog – yours truly – will be there to cover Where 2.0 again this year. If you’re interested in attending, registration is now open. Prices go up after April 10. O’Reilly has been kind enough to offer GEB readers a 10% discount if you plan to attend. Just enter ‘whr07geb‘ for your discount code when you fill out your registration (but, make sure you read about other discounts available – if you’re an academic there’s a 50% discount). Send me an E-mail if you plan to attend, I hope to meet you there!

  1. I would love to attend, but that ~$900 registration fee — ouch. A little steep for a GE hobbyist.
