Coming Home, WhereCamp – More to Come

Over the weekend I attended WhereCamp 2008 -which this year was hosted at the Googleplex – an informal continuation of the O’Reilly Where 2.0 conference . Google actually gave each attendee a tent which has the Google logo on one side and “I’m feeling lucky” on the other (to much amusement). There were quite a few Google Earth related discussions/events at the camp. I’m still recuperating from the trip back from California to my home in North Carolina. I’ll be spending some time today writing up more details on events from the WhereCamp and last week, and highlighting new Google Earth related stories – like the new climate change layer in Google Earth from the British Antarctic Survey.
In the meantime, Ed Parsons of Google has posted a brief summary of his impressions of WhereCamp 2008 including some pictures. Expect more on WhereCamp here later today, with more details on the aerial photo shoot which was done by Pict Earth. You can see a photo of the plane they used in Ed’s post.
