I’ve managed to find some photos of me presenting my keynote at LoCA 2006. You can view the full set of all photos here. I’m the guy in white. The somewhat jaded faces are nothing to do with my presentation, but the late night and then early morning start that the group had had the night before!
As previously announced, I presented the keynote at LoCA 2006. The keynote was on Google Maps and Google Earth, related to the new book which I just announced on the book’s new companion website. I’d like to think that the presentation went well – we started late (due to Dublin traffic, the attendees had trouble getting in – my taxi, by comparison, got us there an hour early), but we finished even later as the questions and queries came thick and fast. We had a taxi booked at 11:00am to take us to the airport, but by 11:15am my wife had to come and collect me to ensure we made it for the flight.If any LoCA attendees want to comment, please feel free!As to the book – and apologies to those from LoCA who I instructed to visit this site for more information – I’m just in the process of organizing the examples and downloadable book content today.
I will be doing the opening keynote presentation for the 2nd International Workshopo on Location and Context-Awareness (LoCA 2006) in Dublin, on May 10th. The focus of the keynote is Google Maps and Google Earth, which of course ties in nicely to my new book, Hacking Google Maps and Google Earth. I’ll be announcing that book properly once it’s all been finalized, at the moment we’re going through the final stages of editing and proofing. There is however a website dedicated to the new book (and mapping technology/Google Maps etc in general) called MCslp Maps. I;ll be posting up the examples and the code from the book over the next two weeks. Back to LoCA 2006, it looks like an interesting workshop, covering issues from Google Maps style location and information through to the identification and location of smaller items, like computers and hardware within offices. Registration is still open, but if you are unable to attend, I’ll probably be posting up the keynote after the conference.
