CalGIS Notes: Day 1

I am attending CalGIS, the California GIS conference, this year in lovely Oakland. Sam Smith and I are manning a Refractions booth on the trade show floor, or rather, Sam is manning the booth most of the time and graciously allowing me to go to whatever talks strike my fancy.

Counting on my thumbs, attendance appears to be around 400 to 500, with about 100 of those folks associated with the sponsors on the exhibition floor.

Quick notes on talks:

Took the BART over the San Francisco for a little evening stroll through the city, had dinner at a “gourmet burger” place on Polk, and BARTed back. In the words of Samuel Pepys, “And so, to bed.”
