Rico Simpkins, REI, - Web 2.0 Mapping and Social Networking

Today I saw a news release explaining Recreational Equipment Inc. initiative to encourage Web 2.0 mapping and Social Networking for their customers. I found a YouTube video with Rico Simpkins explaining the development of this program. YouTube provides an easy way to include this in my Blog, so I am sending this now.

I intend to find out more about this project. There are many ways I can think of that this program could be expanded to environmental, recreation, education and scientific groups in Idaho for example, but other places all over the country.

I will write more detail about how this can work soon. Meanwhile I intend to contact REI to find out more.
