WE LIKE KNOWING where we are and one place that knows more than most is the O'Reilly Where 2.0 Conference in San Jose, California, for a few days in May 2007. Technologists, strategists, CTOs, CIOs, researchers, programmers, geographers, artists, activists, business developers, and entrepreneurs will congregate to explore mapping tools and location web services. It's pricey but it's California and a little California goes a long way for friends around these parts.
If you have expertise in location technology, consider submitting a proposal to speak at Where 2.0. The Call for Proposals is open right now. You can find more information at the Where 2.0 website.
