Last night, the OpenGov Hub turned their happy hour into a 'mappy' hour for a special "MapSIN Happy Hour". The evening was an opportunity for the mapping community to share and discuss their ideas and receive feedback. Folks from a number of groups shared what they are 'cooking' in the form of short ignite talks followed by open discussions and chatting.
A special thanks goes out to our presenters who enlightened us all with information on what they're working and gave perspective to a lot of issues that go well beyond creating cool maps.
Our presenters during last night's MapSIN Happy Hour:
- Rob Baker, Ushahidi
- Zachary Bastian, Wilson Center
- Valerie Zolyak, BlueRaster
- Dave Cole, MapBox / Development Seed
- Bonnie Stayer, ESRI
- Marten Hogeweg, ESRI
- Andrew Turner, ESRI
- Qiyang Xu, World Bank Institute
- Abby Baca, World Bank Institute
And last but most certainly not least, a huge thank you to the other 45 people who came out and participated in the discussions. We look forward to keeping in touch!
