This week's guest is Jack Dangermond, co-founder and president of Esri, the most successful and influential geospatial business ever created. In this extra long episode Steven and Jack have a wide-ranging discussion on spatial being special, "the geographic approach" to problem solving, the unique role geospatial technologies and services have to play in addressing the climate crisis, the evolution of technology and the implications for a long-running business like Esri, and much, much more. It's a unique chance for us to hear the perspective of a geospatial visionary and successful founder who remains as deeply passionate about geo as when he started more than 50 years ago.
