An interesting comment trail at All-Points blog, the ages of geography argument will continue until both sides learn from each others approach, and yes there is stuff to learn from both sides.
The establishment (Paleogeographers) need to understand the value of “Openness” it all it forms, API’s, Licensing etc. and massive potential of users of GI to improve it, while the neo-geographers could do well to understand the requirments of enterprise users, where these are different from the mainstream.
However I would point out that many who regard themesleves as ‘Neogeographers” are happy not to be regarded as GIS people.. now what does that tell you ?
