Forbes has an article about the mapping industry today, specifically about ESRI and Jack Dangermond and its response to Google. “Dangermond doesn't see Google as a competitor (‘We like those guys’), but he admits his software needed to be prettier and quicker.” To that end, Dangermond is suggesting that the upcoming release of ArcGIS 9.2 is the software’s biggest upgrade (see the Directionsmag article for a listing of the new features).

It is interesting to see how non-technical people describe GIS: like a club sandwich.

By way of slashgeo and a few other places.
