I want to be a fan --- just can't figure out how :(
anyone heading down to where camp sunday morning from the Davis / Sacramento area?
Hi Andy- thanks so much for your work on this. What a great event. btw- I missed a contact with the guy that lead the bicycle ride Sunday AM. Pointers welcome
Yep, show up whenever works best
I'm not sure if it's the same in Australia, but from our experiences here, you're right that agents are very restrictive with information in order to make sure the people come to them when looking for a house. But, often the lack of pictures is simply because of technophobia, or technical inability.
The problem is, that ultimately the consumer suffers for that.
We should talk. I'm here at where camp right now. Look for me. Or call me 909-754-3941.
Also, check out what we've done so far: HouseFLIX.com
Hope to see you around.
would i still be allowed entry if i came in late today ... have to attend TiEcon session in the morning (5/17)
Eric, can't wait to see you again this weekend.
http://ushahidi.com is fantastic.
Looking forward to meeting other folks working on activisty geohackery.
PS: puh-lease give the OReilly talk again.
Cars are such a drag. But: Is anyone riding in from Mission-ish area tomorrow?
We are locked and loaded for our Tuesday May 20th event! Visit http://web.meetup.com/49/ for more info.

I'll be bringing a dozen or so Garmin Colorado GPS devices (300 and 400t). If anyone is interested a demonstration of Wherigo I can set up a session - both to try out the player experience and open up the hood to see what you can build with Lua script. Otherwise the devices can output GPX and can be used in various WhereCamp projects. Ping me if you have any ideas.
Here's my proposal for a session, or maybe a thread of sessions (?) - from open maps to open spaces- The world is getting really good at making and using 2D maps. Let's get up off these 2d planes of thinking!! I propose launching a serious effort to develop common open coding for 3D realspace! What do I mean: 3D map views and spatial applications that are useful very near-field to use 3D geocoded data and media Let's assume that very soon 3D data... [read more]
I totally agree with your comments on how online RE should work. In Australia things really suck. You get a couple of pictures and that's it. I just wonder who benefits from the current state of things. Maybe owners/realtors do want to (selectively) show as little as possible of the property to force potential buyers to inspect? Or maybe it is the RE sites that charge too much for additional pictures?
Thanks, and let's definitely grab some time this weekend to continue talking.
Great talk at Where 2.0 the other day. I was very impressed and inspired. Would love to chat during WhereCamp.
Conference was a blast. Totally energized after hearing from many great thinkers. Talks on and about Freebase, MapuFacture, OSM and Flickr were some that really caught my eye and got my brain cells ticking. Looking forward to WhereCamp and the oppurtunity to discuss and hack away some thoughts form the conference.

how do I sign up for wherecaomp, I login and there is no sign up sheet
Hello all, I'm looking at setting up a presentation on map based user interfaces. I work at Orbitz.com and as a UI Engineer I have been doing a decent amount of work on map based solutions and user interactions. We've learned a lot from our prototypes, usability tests, etc. on effective ways to for a web user to perform searches and sort through data through a map and I'm hoping to share that with you all. Leave a comment if you'd be interested t... [read more]
Hey Folks, There is a Web 2.0 Mapping and Social Networks Meetup even that will be happening in Menlo Park on Tuesday, May 20th. If you are planning to be in town for Where Camp, stay an extra day to meet local Bay Area map and social networkers. Check out our site: http://web.meetup.com/49/
I heard a rumor that there will overnight camping at the Googleplex. Anyone have confirmation and/or details?
Here where can I get a schedule of wherecamp?
saw you today walking towards the broadway bridge, was driving opposite direction
Thanks for your comment. Too bad our meetup's conflict. I would love to know more about your work with KML. Look forward to meeting you at WhereCamp.
Kind regards, Catherine
I probably should have done that first comment as a private message. Luckily, it wasn't all that private to begin with. :-)
