Hi mpg,
I am highly interested in both. The presentation should be made available through the Drupal site (but I have not found our VsiCom slot yet?!) and could you give me a link to Lawrence Rosen's book? We have excellent literature in German language, one even focused on Geospatial, but English language books are not that well known, I stumbled accross Carl Fogel's excellent produceoss only recently.
