I realize but of value to this community from my perspective so please refrain from slamming me for this post.
GISMO's own Jack Eichenbaum has been busy of late! He's active in this year's NYC-focused Partners in Preservation initiative. Go to http://bit.ly/Ju3Bw5
to learn more - vote for favorite NYC historic place(s) 1x each day through 5/21.
Jack's May-June walking tour schedule is at http://bit.ly/9ZFxlO.
His LIC offerings coincide with the 2012 Long Island City Arts Open, 5/12 thru 5/20 - http://www.licartsopen.org/location/map/.
<This map would be so much better if interactive. I'm wondering if someone here might consider volunteering to "make it so" for 2013.>
Jack also partnered with Locacious to create two *free* recorded walking tours for Apple devices. These cover Flushing and Jamaica, Queens. Go to http://bit.ly/INazL0
and scroll to item 5 for instructions on download. <I'm waiting on the Android app!>
Which brings me to a last (non-Jack) note: NYC Media Lab is running Media Mash 2012 & submissions close 5/29 http://bit.ly/zyVGii.
Look forward to seeing what might emerge from GISMO & perhaps prove this community is about more than "old fashioned GIS" (some one from a parallel geospatial reality actually said this to me last year).
That's it for now ~dorothy <still encouraging folks out there to get on the "official" roster: joint NYS GIS Association/GISMO dues are just $20/year or $10/year for students - http://bit.ly/JQFl7v
