Gary Price at Resource Shelf shares this information:

Brian Kelly gave a brief talk entitled “Web 2.0: The Potential of RSS and Location-Based Services” at a meeting on 4 September 2006 at the University of Edinburgh. Slides from this presentation are now available.

In a quick look I didn’t see GeoRSS metioned once.

Reading back over GIS Monitor issues (Sept 13, 2001, Sept 20, 2001) I wrote just after September 11 reminded me how unsure everyone was about the future.

My friends are back from Burning Man and are sharing the wonder of a week in the Nevada desert where money buys only coffee and ice and everything else runs on a “gift economy.” Black Rock Spatial Delivery is the internal mail service for the week long “camp out.” (Black Rock is the closest town to the playa where Burning Man is held.) After training volunteer carriers do their best to deliver mail to various people at their various camps on the concentric circles of the roads. A 6/8 delivery ratio was deemed quite good. A real post office is created at Burning Man each year for mail the real world.

The post card I saw from the delivery service had the motto: Stellar Service to Heavenly Bodies since 1999. There’s got to be a blog called Spatial Delivery, right?
