Over the last few months since I’ve been on the Virtual Earth team I become friends with Ed Katibah. Ed works on the SQL Spatial team and is one of those guys who lives and breathes what he loves and what he loves is Spatial Databases. He also loves talking about them and I find that when I’m hanging out with Ed I learn a lot. When I first met Ed he was doing some blogging, then he stopped. Myself and a number of people like James Fee have been working him over this past week at GeoWeb to start blogging again.

After all, there is too much good stuff up in that head of his to not share and with our release of SQL Spatial there is much the Microsoft developer community can learn from Ed about how to design and build spatial databases.

Well I guess our convincing worked because “Spatial Ed” has started blogging again. Keep it up Ed. We definitely enjoy it.
