  • Panelists from Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo! face off over local search, moderated by John Battelle

  • *sniff*, *sniff*.. Maybe I'll get invited next time.. ;) There are some other really interesting speakers and topics at this conference..

    Here is some information about the conference itself:

    Join us at the first Where 2.0 Conference June 29-30, 2005 in sunny San Francisco. Where 2.0 covers the movement of mapping and location technology from the theoretical to the masses, illustrating the creativity that's waiting to be unleashed as the tools and data become readily available. Sessions and panels will talk to real, deployed products (Google Maps, Yahoo!, MetaCarta, Microsoft) that combine a vision of the future with something to show right now.

    More information about the conference can be found here (includes a link to the conference wiki - COOL!). Is anyone going? If so, post a comment and a report from the conference for all Google Maps Mania readers to read!
