There's so much happening it's hard to keep up, as we count down to the Digital Earth Summit in September.
It's been all go at Summit HQ as we whizzed past the one month out mark. We've got the full programme up online, and the speaking line up looks out of this world. There will be a lot of very talented and clever people descending on Wellington from 2-4 September, and I for one can't wait to be part of the big conversation happening at the Summit.
We've just confirmed two new speakers, Minister for Land Information (and geospatial evangelist) Maurice Williamson and General Manager Infrastructure Richard MacGeorge from the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority. Both bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the speaking line up, as well as important perspectives on the challenges we face as we explore the relationship between technology and the management of our resources.
We've started to see Summit followers get their tweet on and come up with some great suggestions come through our twitter competition. We're asking for the best tweet length description of what digital earth means to you - and by tweeting you get the chance to win a free full registration to the summit. So if you haven't caught up with us on twitter yet what more excuse do you need? Have a search for #4des12 and give us your suggestions.
There are still some super announcements to come this month, including a social programme acitvity that we're pretty sure has never been run in Wellington before.
Needless to say... watch this space!
