GeoHipster 6-month anniversary recap

GeoHipster launched six months ago. At the time we didn’t know what to expect, and where it was going. But the response has been encouraging, and we’ll keep forging full speed ahead.

First of all, I want to thank Glenn Letham for encouraging me to launch GeoHipster, and GISUser for the initial financial support. Next, I want to thank all interviewees who graciously agreed to answer my (sometimes silly) questions. I will be remiss if I didn’t specifically mention Renee Sieber, our first interviewee, who came up with the idea for the interview format. Thank you, Renee! Last but not least, a huge thank you goes out to all readers, commenters, tweeters, etc.

A growing number of volunteers are helping make GeoHipster ever more interesting. We have more great interviews coming up, as well as articles and other surprises. Any and all comments, suggestions, and critiques are welcome — just email me at

Finally, a few announcements. Firstly, we are planning to publish a 2015 GeoHipster wall calendar. We invite you to submit your GeoHipstery maps or other images for the calendar (email to We will credit the authors, obviously.

Secondly, we have a new logo (like the new design?), and have GeoHipster t-shirts for sale to help offset our costs. Show your support and GeoHipster pride in style.
