My usual vendor discussions today included an interesting meeting with Tom Ybarra of SafeNet. His company provides a solution that is the "watchful eye" for software vendors to guard against software piracy. SafeNet OEM’s their solution to companies like ESRI to make certain no one is loading more versions of the software than they purchased. It’s not something we think about much but it means is a huge impact for software vendors who constantly have licenses stollen and "bootlegged" copies made. Ybarra noted that the Asia/Pacific region accounts for over 80% of the software piracy worldwide.

“It’s probably too early for the industry to set standards for location, but it sure isn’t too early to begin thinking about them.”

-Esther Schindler in her article Finding Yourself: Add Maps to Your Apps. about her: “She has been writing about technology professionally since 1992, and her byline has appeared in dozens of IT publications. She’s optimized compilers, owned a computer store, taught corporate training classes, moderated online communities, run computer user groups, and, in her spare time, written a few books.”

She seems to know about OSGEO but not about OGC, which clearly thinks it’s not too early!
