Every Wednesday at noon US west coast time, 3pm US Eastern time (21:00 central European time, 8pm UK time) "#gischat" takes place on twitter. In this episode Steven talks with organizers Kate Berg and Michele Tobias on what has become an industry phenomenon. #gischat topics range from the profound to the witty to the mundane, providing an informal and worldwide forum for anyone to put forward their opinions and jokes about the geospatial industry, share career advice, post technical questions, vent about technical frustrations, and just generally make connections with others in the industry. Kate and Michele share the history of #gischat, and reflect on why it has become so popular.

The Geomob podcast is hosted by Ed Freyfogle, co-founder of OpenCage, and Steven Feldman, of KnowWhere Consulting.

Every week we discuss themes from the geo industry, interview Geomob speakers, and provide regular updates about our own projects.
