If you were to name your two favorite things what might they be?  When it comes to technology I see the future as being about social media and a digital map.  That is why I was excited to have the opportunity to interview Russ Johnson who heads of the homeland security function for Esri.  Since he has been involved in one way or another with some of the bigger events since the advent of social media he brings a world of experience to the table.


My interview with him was just published online today, see Russ Johnson Talks Esri and All Things GIS  There is some really good information there on where mapping is headed and the intersection with social media.  


Thanks Russ for doing the interview!
