Virtual Geography Convention 2013: AAG 2013 Day 3 Twitter Roundup

Welcome to the Virtual Geography Convention 2013!  If you have a presentation or blog post you wished published please contact me at catholicgauze [at] gmail [dot] com! 

An update on the useful and not so useful information being shared on Twitter at the Association of American Geographers conference in Los Angeles.  

'1.24% of tweets have a GPS location, with ~60% using a profile location and ~15% are easily geocodable' @SeanGorman #aag2013

At #AAG2013 , @elsevierscience is buying you a drink at the expense of your library's budget. #Openaccess now!

Gary Fields: US border patrol officials have told him that Israelis have come to visit US/Mexico border to learn. #AAG2013 #PalMex
Reece Jones: Like Israel's wall, the US/Mexico border was also created through military conquest. #AAG2013 #PalMex

Fascinating talk by Jess Bier on how contemporary Palestian maps of West Bank based on digitized British colonial maps from 1930s #AAG2013

Tired of repetitive accounts of crude neoliberalism, including at #AAG2013 (no names mentioned). If only power were so crude! #GlobalPOV

Reading the #aag2013 twitter feed. Wish I could show off what "impact" looks like. Then probably have a session on, "Now I have to kill u."
