View from the stage of my first keynote speech. The MAPPS conference crowd was awesome!

On behalf of MAPPS, the national non-profit association of private-sector firms engaged in all aspects of the geospatial community, I would like to personally thank you for the fantastic keynote address that you recently gave at our annual Summer Conference at the Belmond Theater in Charleston, South Carolina.
