  • Blog Post: A free event in Reading - introduction to our web mapping

    Carla, from our Virtual Earth team tells me that they have another free seminar coming up in March, where there’s a chance to get an overview of our web-based mapping solutions. I think this is probably going to be more useful for developers within your teams, and potentially some of the academics, but...
  • Blog Post: Windows Live - web-based services are coming...

No sooner have I become comfortable with that idea, then along comes the concept of "Mash Ups", which were...

    I ran into somebody at a conference recently who'd started a project (or is it a business?) which is a really neat example of the world of Web 2.0 and how users can drive information. On this website , students can record their impressions of their university across a range of criteria. It's a very simple...
