Giles Lane from Proboscis
My third year class (Contemporary Issues in GIS) had a talk today from Giles Lane of Proboscis. Giles has a strong arts background and is driven by enabling communities to make innovative use of mobile technology. He has been involved in this sector since the late 1990s and, somewhat unusually, has worked with business, government and academia. And some of the technology deployed has involved the development of bespoke kit to support a variety of platforms for input (PDA, smartphone, interactive TV, web browser). Yet the focus is not technology led, but community led. My class certainly found this unusual and challenged their preconceptions about the the people and uses of GIS.
