This week’s Hangout guest is Paul Ramsey of OpenGeo and chair of the PostGIS steering committee. We’ll be talking about PostGIS (surprise, right?), why spatial databases are treated as special and why OpenGeo has been successful providing solutions using open source software when clearly anyone can download all the software for free.

We’ll be talking on the IRC channel again so either show up to the Hangout page on WeoGeo or better yet, point your IRC client to #hwjf on chat.freenode.net. I’ve you’ve got a question you’d like Paul, Madeline or myself to answer, please post it on the Google Moderator page and we’ll be sure to address it.

We’ll see you Wednesday at 10am PDT!
