While wandering around the blogosphere I stumbled onto a thread on the O’reilly Radar discussing the recent FOSS4G. Simply following link after link I stumbled onto a cool tool that I was not familiar with. GeoTracing is a software platform for creating multimedial geo-applications. For example, create GPS tracklogs remotely from mobile phone, create overlayed maps by combining tracklogs, etc… some interesting uses have been mentioned including the likes of managing speedskating tracks… ie. GeoSkating. What a great way to manage routes and trecks… imagine bike riding routes, or maybe a holiday drive? For more see http://www.geotracing.com/ – they also have a Wiki and a Yahoo! discussion group. No doubt we’ll hear more about this in the future.

Just wanted to test out the new functionality available in the Yahoo! mail beta. So far the drag and drop functionality and the preview panes appear to be awesome. A faster search capability (nice for guys like me that have 5000 emails collected there!) integrated RSS news reader, spell check, and support for firefox are also nice. You can test it for yourself at http://new.mail.yahoo.com or simply upgrade via your existin gmail account. This blog post was sent via Yahoo! mail
