Sorry, meant to say "I drove up..."

Alan mighta flown, I don't really know (he gets around, based in
Texas, hails from New Orleans originally).  Here's a link to his
company profile:


(Enfold, Enthought, both Texas... any more Texas Ens?  oh yeah, just
though of one, less successful, maybe not enough Python (grin)).

Also, meant to mention I was yakking about Python for a GIS conference
yesterday, the one I've been advertising via my motd @
osgarden.appspot.com (need a new motd -- switch focus back to OS
Bridge maybe).

You can read my write-up my GIS in Action talk (and take in some
Photostream) from this blog entry FYI:


I was happy to finally meet up with Tim Welch of Ecotrust, and to get
patched in to OSGIS meeting times, not at Cubespace, but same idea.

certified, though I'm rusty...)

I'm hoping to get more public school teachers interested in staffing
GIS shops inside the schools themselves, starting with Benson maybe?
They have that polytechnical reputation....

Here's a link I just learned about, probably old hat to some of ya:


This "geocaching for Bin Laden" game looks like a fun way to satisfy
our more hawkish parents (yes, we have some in Portland):


I'll see some of you tonight maybe,
