I've been hiding in the shadows for the past year, but after NACIS I decided to reappear and introduce myself. I was in Portland two years ago but skipped the Salt Lake conference as a result of being the new kid on the Baltimore block (moved from DC to take a spin around the newsroom at The Sun). I had a good time in Madison and hope to make it to St. Louis to find more familiar names and faces.

Hi there Miz,

Welcome to the forum! Did you have "Miz" on your name-tag at NACIS Madison?

Actually Christine I found your old username, which was just Christine

You can use whatever you like, though "Miz Fellenz" is much hipper and works well in the Gizoogle translation.

is it just me... ? but my immediate association with the 'neogeographers' term... is with cavemen. Like neanderthals, neolithic troglodytes etc. Doesn't really make sense... :)

Frax, my first association with Neo is the recent movie "The Matrix", implying futuristic, high-tech.

So, would Gizoogle translate geographer into gizzographer? (thats a juicy g, not a hard g)

Cartography into cartografizzle?

Something Schuyler Erle said last week describing people who aren't trained to make maps but who do make maps. I'm surrounded by them... and it is a bit cave-ish. :)

Hmmm. Are the neogeographers also more hairy in Baltimore?
