Nice article,

I like the bottom of page 3 - top of page 4 where they talk about the GIS marketplace and the number of users (1 million ESRI users) compared to the 6 billion that Google is working for.

This is the most verbose they've been about GE since it went up.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


That semes like an apples to oranges comparison.
Are there actually 6 billion people with access to the internet? And of those who do have access how many have looked at GE? And of those who have looked at GE how many actually "use" it in some meaningful sense?
On the other hand, how many people besides actual users of ESRI (or other GIS) software have benefitted from GIS in some way?
