Dominic has a very interesting post over at geometrybag, noting the lack of UK centric content in the dozen or so UK based blogs that deal with Geography and GIS. Dominic is on to something here, there are many topics that are of interest to a UK specific readership beyond OS bashing of course 🙂 , but maybe the point is that the technology issues we deal with are global ?
Maybe it is just a problem with the “traditional” GI industry, I know from personal experience that UK organisations are less receptive to blogging than those in the United States for example, and to be fair the OpenStreetMap, and geowanking mailing list communities have very active participation from Brits.
Are we in the UK a year or two behind the curve on this ?
