One of the most popular, albeit underutilized offerings we have on our Spatial Media web publications (GISuser.com, LBSzone.com and Amerisurv.com) is the Career Center. Quite frankly, the GISuser Career center totally rocks yet many companies still forget to take advantage of this tremendous service. We recently flipped the switch and now charge a mere $29 per posting (hey, we gotta eat right??), a price that we feel is affordable and very worthwhile given the exposure you’ll get on an industry-leading career board. For your 29 clams you get a listing of any length and for any duration that you desire (3 days or 90 days, its your call) furthermore, all new postings get crawled by google news (added bonus as it just kind happened) and we also mention new opportunities in our newsletter which is sent to thousands of opt-in subscribers, most of whom are decision makers in Geo technologies. Additionally, jobs that may be hard to fill or that I feel are just downright cool may also get mentioned here in the blog or I may post a teaser and link to them on a number of social outlets (like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook to name a few). Finally, what most people also may not know is that we are WAY flexible in accepting your job opportunities, for example, if you can’t spare the $29 just ask, we’ll gladly post a job for you to help out (yes, we are cool!), if you’re a government agency and have no budget, no worries, we’ll post for free for you as well or we can send you an invoice. Those of you with tons of job opps, we have an annual job posting account that we offer for a mer $500 – yes indeed, that gets you all the job postings you want for an entire year for only $500. Finally, since we have several publications that reach different skillsets, if you’re job opportunity is of interest to readers on another site we’ll gladly post it there as well (for example, if its a mobile focus or for a Java programmer, we’ll also post at the LBSzone career board. So, there you have it, a reminder to take advantage of this great resource – go see for yourself at the GISuser Career Center and good luck – PS: if you’re shopping your resume around contact us (jobs @ gisuser.com) and we can promote you as well!

an interesting project that encouraged students to send letters to the President, written using Google Docs, and address topics that are of great concern. About the project… Letters to the Next President: Writing Our Future is an online writing and publishing project for students, ages 13 – 18, co-sponsored by Google and the National Writing Project. They invited young people to write about the issues and concerns that they feel are central to their future, issues they would hope our next president would act on. Topics were chosen by the students themselves to reflect their specific personal, regional, and age-related interests. See more at http://www.letters2president.org/

itsmy.com has taken steps to protect its users not only within the community but also on the streets. Therefore itsmy.com submitted the concept for a new street sign to the European Union in Brussels that should call the attention of all road users to mobile internet usage outdoors. The reason for the signs… A survey among more than 1,000 mobile community users carried out by itsmy.com in December 2008, shows astonishing results: 64% of respondents worldwide already bumped into someone else or fell over something while they were surfing mobile internet and walking down the street or any other location. See more details here. Below are signs for the mobile using pedestrian as seen in New York and Munich.
