Changes Afoot for the Blog

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 ccablog@yahoo.ca.

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!)

    English is not easy for me (it would be easier if you'd be from Quebec city ;o)), but I'm reading this site one time per day.
    I'm not a professionnal, just a guy for wich cartography is hobby.
    And It's the best site about map I've found on the web. I know it's difficult and take lot of time but this site is a wonderfull job.
    Thank you for this work CCAer. If some english-speaking person can help you to continue CCAblog, this will be a great thing for us (readers of this website) and for quality of cartography on the web.

    A bientôt.
