Ed chats with well-known geospatial developer Tom MacWright to discuss his new project Placemark, a service for collaborative editing of geospatial data. Tom shares what Placemark is, the problems he is attempting to solve, the challenge of finding the balance between ease of use and power, but also why he is building it as an independent, bootstrapped business.
Placemark is currently in private beta. You can sign up on the Placemark site to get access once it launches.
