2009 In Review Part 3: People

I finished up part 2 of my 2009 review with the observation that 2009 seemed to be a lot less about technology and more about communities and people so what better way to end my 2009 review by calling attention to the people who I feel deserve mention.

Firstly and most importantly there’s my wife, my children and my family. You know who you all are. You put up with me, with geo and with my work and online life and you never stop believing. I don’t need to say anymore

Then there’s the other people who’ve believed, a word I’ve used a lot in this set of linked 2009 review posts, who’ve helped, supported, encouraged, criticised and who’ve given me a platform to speak on.

And finally there’s my team, my group, the Geo Technologies crowd in the United States and in the United Kingdom; you continue to produce one of the finest geo platforms there is and you consistently make me look good.

2009 was a good year for people and for geo; I look forward to writing 2010’s review of the year and see that we’ve gone to the great heights that The Guardian and Garner expect of the location aware Internet.

That’s it; I’m all blogged out for 2009 and so I wish a very Happy Christmas and a geo-tastic New Year to you all.
