Changes Afoot for the Blog
Published Thursday, September 14, 2006 by CCAer | E-mail this post
The CCAblog is now approaching 1 1/2 years of age and regular attracts more than 500 people a day on weekdays. There are many regular readers that provide positive feedback, suggest links and items of interest. To date, it has been pretty much a solo effort, driven by a personal love of maps and an interest in new technologies and developments in the field.
Because of an upcoming change in employment circumstances I am afraid that I will no longer be able to dedicate as much time to it as I currently do. As well, since my new employer is a private company, there are some concerns of a potential conflict of interest.
I would very much like to see the blog continue. To that end, I am seeking a person or persons who would be willing to assist me in maintaining the blog. Interested individuals would need to be a member of the Canadian Cartographic Association
(this being the CCA’s web log - membership is a mere $90 a year, tax deductible in Canada, at least - pdf form here
), have an interest in new developments, a love of all things cartographic, and be willing to spend some time each day searching for items of interest and writing about them. Such a commitment need not be as time consuming as my own; with a number of interested people it might require only 15 or 30 minutes each a day.
If you are interested in seeing this web log continue or would like more information, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the mean time, I will continue to post as much as possible; just expect a little less in volume, at least for the short term. (And, for those of you who know me and want to know what I will be up to, drop me a note!)
