Looks like ESRI has gotten the message on the ESRI Support Survey that was released last week.
If you haven’t taken the Support Survey yet, please do so.
Looks like ESRI interviewed Dave Bouwman at the 2007 Developer Summit and has posted a Podcast of the discussion.
Listen to Bouwman discuss developing custom GIS solutions for forestry and describe some of the large projects he has worked on.
I’ll probably listen this weekend while I’m painting at the new house (no jokes about paint drying and listen to podcasts please).
Typical, typical site from ESRI. 😦
**Update – **OK, I had to break down and listen. If you want to know more about what Dave is up to and hear him say SOC many times, you’ll want to jump in and listen.

Sounds like a great idea. I’ll get this started with one of my favorite sites (ArcIMS no less):
