"We tell people where to put things." Sounds basic, but with this simple strategy our guest this week, Blair Freebairn, has grown Geolytix from a one-man consultancy to a thriving multi-national company with a team of 40, and working with some of the world's best known brands. Blair joins Steven to reflect on growing his business, the pros and cons of building on open data and open source, and how the industry has evolved since the two worked together about 15 years ago. Geolytix is a great success story, and Blair shares some of the key lessons learned along the way.
Finally, Steven thanks Blair for recently becoming a Geomob sponsor! Blair shares some of his motivations for giving back to the Geomob community.
Every week we discuss themes from the geo industry, interview Geomob speakers, and provide regular updates about our own projects.
