Steven interviews Paul Ramsey
, whom Steven describes as "a superstar of the OSGeo community".
Paul is one of the inventors of the PostGIS extension to Postgres, the most well known and widely
used spatial database in the world. Paul tells the story of PostGIS's start all the way back in 2001,
and how it has since grown to become a foundational piece of geospatial software. The perspective
then turns to the future with Paul musing on upcoming trends in geospatial computing.
Finally Paul and Steven discuss the current state of the open source world and funding for open
source projects, before closing with a discussion of Paul's work for election campaigns.
