As a vague part of what has become an ongoing spatial road show, I find myself in Vancouver, BC this week at the SIGMOD conference. I don't know how many readers I have attending this event, but if there are any, please feel free to track me down. I'll be speaking tomorrow on some of the extensibility features in SQL Server.
Last week's conference---TechEd in Orlando---was a very good trip. We gave a couple well-received spatial talks, and I spent many more hours fielding a slew of spatial questions. I'm pleasantly surprised at the quick up tick in spatial interest.
