Here’s something that I’m sure almost everyone can relate to. There’s a periodic meetup in your neighborhood or community, however, the schedule isn’t fixed to any regular pattern. You try to subscribe to important mailing lists, RSS feeds, facebook pages, Twitter accounts, you load your Google calendar with feeds but you seem to still miss out on awesome events. This happens to me all the time, mainly because there’s simply so much to follow and so much noise out there… it really is almost impossible to keep all the announcements and feeds straight. Perhaps a good solution is a mobile alert!

Some cool news from the GRASS GIS development team as GRASS turns 30!
Today the Free Software community celebrates the 30th birthday of GRASS GIS! GRASS (Geographic Resources Analysis Support System) is a free and open source Geographic Information System (GIS) software suite used for geospatial data management and analysis, image processing, graphics and map production, spatial modeling, and 3D visualization. GRASS GIS is currently used in academic and commercial settings around the world, as well as by many governmental agencies and environmental consulting companies. GRASS GIS can be used either as a stand-alone application or as backend for other software packages such as QGIS and R geostatistics. It is a founding member of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) and can be freely downloaded at http://grass.osgeo.org/download/software/.
