It's a Doubleheader: Two Great Ways to Play Ball!

It's one of those days when two events worth highlighting are occurring on the same day. Figuratively, it's a doubleheader, and here's the lineup:

1.)  GeoCONOPS Webinar: Wouldn't you know it?  The day after I post information about EMI's new Independent Study Courses on the Homeland Security Geospatial CONOPS, it turns out the National Information Sharing Consortium is sponsoring a webinar on the same subject. Spooky, don't you think?  Here are the details:
  • What: GeoCONOPS: What it Means for State and Local Officials
  • When: Thursday, November 14 
  • Time: 2:00-3:30 PM CST 
  • Who: David Alexander, Director, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Geospatial Management Office 
  • Pitch: GeoCONOPS defines Federal geospatial capabilities in support of State, Local, and Tribal authorities across the entire emergency management cycle. What are its benefits to state, local, and private organizations? What activities, best practices, and technical resources does it offer? What are future training and technological plans?

2.) Give to the Max Day. I'm not making this up. For Minnesota based nonprofits, November 14th is the day of the year when "every donation you make gives your favorite nonprofits and schools the chance to win even more money. Hundreds of organizations will offer the opportunity to double your dollars with matching grants throughout the 24 hours." I'm thinking that's another spooky coincidence. SharedGeo, the nonprofit that sponsors this blog and a bunch of other cool geospatial projects that benefit the common good, would REALLY appreciate any donation you can "pitch" its way. Here's the why and how:
