Win a SpaceNavigator from GearthBlog at Where

Starting next week GearthBlog will be written from California for two weeks. I'm attending several important Google Earth-related events: Where 2.0, Google Developer Day, and the International Symposium on Digital Earth. The Where 2.0 conference is probably one of the most important meetings of the year for developers of new Web 2.0 mapping technologies. The Google Developer Day is the expanded version of last year's event where Google made several big announcements for Google Earth (GE 4, huge amounts of new imagery, and other data all released in honor of GE's birthday). And the ISDE should be a very interesting mix of folks from all over the world interested in using these technologies with a focus on Earth.

While I'm attending Where, I plan to give away a free SpaceNavigator. The 3D mouse which, in my opinion, is the best way to use Google Earth (or any virtual globe). Here's how it will work: if you are a Google Earth Blog reader and you see me at Where 2.0, make sure to give me your business card (one card per person!). On the afternoon of the second day, I will randomly draw a card and will post the winner on my blog. If you're still at the show when you find out, I'll give it to you there. Otherwise, I'll mail it to you later. Anyway, I'm hoping to meet lots of GEB readers during the trip.

I'm expecting many new announcements from the Google Geo team during these events. New satellite imagery, new 3D building technology, new layers, and who knows - maybe they'll announce GE 5?

    I live in New Zealand so cannot attend... can I not mail you a business card? Please...

    I believe the idea is that Frank wants to meet many GE fans and GEB readers face to face, to encourage people to take part in these events, and hopefully write something interesting for us to read about here in the blog. So this is not a global Space Navigator lottery.

    Pete has a point. I live in South Africa so attending is out of the question. Since GE is a virtual world, cannot I send you a virtual business card, providing you promise not to send me a virtual SpaceNavigator if I win !! Enjoy the conference. Looking forward to your blogs.
