Apparently another online GIS publication has decided that their “blog” is so popular that it really does deserve a home of its own including a new domain. Cool idea but realistically, this does a dis-service to the website and the bloggers that follow it. Now they have succeeded in separating the blog from the publication totally and created a new identity. Several daily threads that archive recent Google news posts leave one yawning. Nice idea but in my mind its taking a pretty good thing and pushing it over the edge.
