Comment Policy

In general, I don’t moderate comments but WordPress does have some settings that may cause a comment to be thrown into a moderation queue. When that happens, I try to get to it as fast as a I can.

I also have this blog set to close comments on all posts twelve (12) days after they are posted. If this seems to restrictive to you, thank the comment spammers. If you have a legitimate comment on a post for which comments have closed, feel free to e-mail me.

This blog is enriched by the comments it receives and I encourage any and all relevant points of view. I don’t expect or require anyone to agree with me nor do I need to agree with a comment in order for it to be posted. I encourage all commentary and criticism. I will, however, remove any comments that I think are spam, flames, derogatory or engage in personal attacks. Such determinations will be based solely on my own opinion.

    Bill,
    Re: GeoIQ-to-ESRI
    Not sure if you were aware of this but NGA (and other I.C. agencies) are on a big push to project social media (i.e. Twitter, etc.) on their maps, real-time. It’s called Human Geography. ESRI wanted to get into this space. Lessons learned from Arab Spring, Syria, etc. They also have a boatload of classified cables, messages, etc. that are location-based. So, in NGA’s latest, RFP for the GDS program, there’s a separate PWS for Human Geography. Google “HM157412R0004_HG”. I figure it’s worth $20M in technical services over 5 years. That, and they picked-up a brand new set of clients like the World Bank and the UN. ESRI’s been there, in force, for map production services since the early 90’s. By comparison, Google Earth has only been part of their intelligence production for 5-6 years.
    (not sure if we’ve ever crossed paths, but I did work at NGA (or, it’s predessors) as a contractor from 1995-2009.)
