As readers of this blog know mapping and maps mashups are hot. There will be plenty of interesting discussions, announcements and ideas on these topics and more in less than two weeks at the O'Reilly Where 2.0 Conference in San Jose on the 13-14th of June.
3scale and Kin Lane (API Evangelist) have announced that the second API Strategy and Practice Conference will take place October 23 – 25, 2013 in San Francisco, California at the Parc55 Hotel, located near Union Square. Tickets will be available in limited batches starting on June 5th.
It's no secret that the Google Maps API is incredibly popular. Our directory lists over 2,100 Google Maps mashups, but that's obviously just a subset of all the sites powered by the mapping platform. And now we know how many sites that is. According to Google Developer Advocate Mano Marks, there are 350,000 websites incorporating Google Maps. And, of course, Google now has many other geographic APIs.
