Ignite: Spatial BostonNo, Church Lady won’t be there, but a lot of folks interested in location-aware application development and analysis will be.

O’Reilly and sponsors The Open Planning Project (TOPP) and PlaceBlogger are holding an Ignite event with a special … er, spatial twist.  Speakers get five minutes with 20 slides - set to automatically transition after 15 seconds each - to chat on stage about some aspect of working with spatial data and applications. 

It’s kind of like the weather in New England, if you don’t like the topic, wait 5 minutes, and it will change.  Of course it’s also a great opportunity to network with like minded geeks in the very cool setting of Microsoft’s New England Research and Development Center.  Directions are left to the reader – after all, if you can’t figure out how to get here, is this particular event really up your alley? ;-)

The event is on December 2nd from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at NERD.  It’s free, but attendance is limited (only 16 ‘tickets’ are left as I’m writing this) – register at Eventbrite now!
