Another mobile social, location technology newsletter - this one for the week of Nov 21, 2012 

Hello Mobile Enthusiast... Welcome to another Location technology news roundup. Since turkey is on the mind of many I'll start by sharing a couple of fun, Thanksgiving related tips that you may find handy! Ever wanted to know how to set the dinner table to really impress? Here's a cool visualization from Visual.ly that will show you exactly how to accomplish that... funny, the geoGeek in me immediately thought to myself that a map of a typical holiday table would be a cool project to work on! Are you a photo junkie like yours truly? If so then here's a fun creation anyone can accomplish and you'll be guaranteed to wow the guests at the holiday table. Another awesome photo project you can work on involves your Instagram account... imagine creating awesome photocards (high quality too) from Instagram photos. This resource from Copygram enables you to do just that. Another good reason to upload images of some maps you've made or perhaps other data visualizations and then do something creative like drop a card in the mail for your client! Ok, moving forward, I'm pleased to share an event tip with as Locations & Beyond 2012 is just around the corner. Join over 100 of the industry's leading companies who are shaping the future of Location-based Services for an interactive discussion on what's next - See more here. Additionally, if Javascript is of interest to you and you'll be in the Denver area in January then take note of this un-event, JS:geo 2013, scheduled to take place Jan 14-15 - space is limited! Finally, have you ever wondered how an org like an official local government can take advantage of social media resources like foursquare, Instagram, and Pinterest? Here's an update from the City of Philadelphia with some great ideas! Have a great week to all, and those of you celebrating Thanksgiving be safe, enjoy the holiday and take a moment to think about what you are truly thankful for - I do this every day... cheers!
