Perhaps a shameless plug, but I was hoping to find some interested readers and new blogs to enjoy...
I'm a professional GIS/Remote Sensing ninja monkey hailing from the West Coast. If any of you are interested in my GIS work (involving carbon and fire risk inventory), or Google Maps 'the beginning' (working on a community pollution monitoring website), or Environmental Planning/Landscape Architecture (I did my Master's in it), I invite you to my new blog: A Drag and Drop World
I will (occasionally) link to my (old) LJ for the moment. However, I'm still going to concentrate a lot of work related stuff here
