Turned down for Where 2.0

I'm a little disappointed that my Where 2.0 proposal was rejected. I thought that demonstrating a virtual globe that supports KML and Shapefiles, can do coordinate projections on large datasets and be completely customized with Javascript and embedded on any website would be somewhat interesting. I find it interesting.

They have some interesting talks planned to be sure, I suppose if I were a sponsoring corporation they might have taken me more seriously. At least they offered me a 25% discount on the $1000+ registration fee to attend, but I don't think I'll take them up on that.

Oh well, back to my iPhone app that has nothing to do with geospatial.

Sorry to hear that Matt, I think your project would fit well, but maybe they just want the 'big' guys, I am loving your realtime stats script.

HI Matt,

This is Brady Forrest, the chair for Where 2.0. I am sorry that your proposal didn't get accepted. The Where 2.0 program committee and I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the best . We had a lot of proposals (about 20% more than last year) and we had to reject well over a hundred -- many from big companies and many from small companies.

If you want to talk about your proposal let me know.
