GeoWeb Converts

I gave a guest lecture this week on the GeoWeb to students on a GIS course. To persuade them of the importance of the new technologies I told them the story that Michael Jones told in his frontiers of geophysics lecture at AGU last December (I'm on the road writing this so forgive the lack of a link to the video: it's about 40 minutes in if you care to find it) about how Condi Rice was wowed by GEarth in Dafur.

They seemed to get it and one student described it as inspiring and was asking about GeoWeb jobs. Good to be reminded I work in an interesting topic area.
