Look, they were bound to do another podcast and this is the one you get. Some Twitter talk considering Bill and James have both tweaked Twitter. James renews his passport and realizes that GeoWeb 2009 was 10 years ago. They discuss what Ron Lake meant to the community and during that time James clean up a 10 year old blog post and his blog software sends out a tweet that Jason Birch sees. That's some live podcasting right there. James shares his predictions for 2010 and Bill agrees they were mostly on point except for the Shapefile going away. Lastly they discuss Android 10, asking permission for location, incognito mode for Google Maps and what ethical responsibilities do companies have for location in ttheir apps.

- A Hot Time at GeoWeb 2009 – Spatially Adjusted — The 2009 GeoWeb Conference has come and gone once again. 2009 was special to me because we have started to see some really great GeoWeb enabled websites really take flight. Clearly many have stopped talking about how discovery and sharing of data should be done and have begun implementing it.
- Ron Lake – The Man In the Arena – geoMusings — I never met Ron Lake, but the majority of my career has taken place in the geospatial technology landscape he helped create. He is best known as the author and chief advocate of Geography Markup Language (GML), the XML encoding of geographic objects that underpins most of the Open Geospatial Consortium’s web standards and is a standard itself. This fact made him a pioneer, a visionary, and a source of controversy.
- GeoWeb Conference - Wikipedia — The GeoWeb Conference focuses on the emergence of a true geographic dimension to the World Wide Web, and on the impact of Internet technologies on the acquisition, processing and visualization of geographic information. Geoweb is a conference of ideas and networking – how can we work together to build a global, integrated and inclusive model of our planet.

- Jason Birch on Twitter: "@jamesmfee Hey, I liked this for juxtaposition of Andrew and Ron, then noticed that the article mentions me and my slide deck somehow survived my purge of 2013. Shocked. I'm sad that SEO for spatial info hasn't really taken off, though I'm still doing my best to influence from the inside..." / Twitter
- Keeping privacy and security simple, for you — Incognito mode has been one of our most popular privacy controls since it launched with Chrome in 2008. We added it to YouTube earlier this year, and now we’re rolling it out in Google Maps.
- A PLANET OF 3 BILLION - about the book — Tucker makes the case that the Earth’s 'carrying capacity' is limited to 3 billion humans, and that humanity’s century long binge has incurred an unsustainable ecological debt that must be paid down promptly, or else cataclysm awaits. Given that our species has already surpassed 7.5 billion, and is fast approaching 9 billion or more, this is an audacious claim that everyone who cares about the fate of our planet and our species has a responsibility to evaluate for themselves. Tucker, in his exploration of the frontiers of scientific knowledge, urges all of us to question his estimate. He encourages us to marshal our own data and calculations, if we are so inclined, so that we can all engage in this existential debate as educated global citizens equipped to navigate what promises to be an uncertain future.
