Speaker details

Philip Lindsay

I developed libgmail--the Python binding for Gmail <http://libgmail.sf.net/>-- and did a lot of the initial hacking of Google Maps <http://libgmail.sourceforge.net/googlemaps.html>, developed the first standalone viewer for it <http://stuff.rancidbacon.com/gmaps-standalone/> and various other bits and pieces: <http://stuff.rancidbacon.com/google-maps-embed-how-to/>, <http://mygmaps.com/>. I was invited to O'Reilly's Where 2.0 conference earlier in the year and had a "booth" at their Where Fair. As penance for my leading people astray into proprietary mapping APIs :-) I am now involved with the OpenLayers project <http://www.openlayers.org> that aims to provide a dynamic-drag tile based map and GIS web interface that is standards compliant with OGC's WMS & WFS specifications and BSD licensed.
