10 awesome things seen at 2014 ESRIUC
GIS User
Indeed, there's no shortage of cool and amazing technology to touch, see and hear about at ESRIUC; actually, it's almost overwhelming, so creating a list of just 10 awesome things I saw is no simple task. Hopefully, I won't crush any feelings for those not mentioned here, and just let it be known that this list could likely easily be rehashed into a "100 Cool things" list if I had the time!

Who will win at indoor location?
GPS World
Where are bets on new technology being placed? Prominent venture capital firms are investing in companies with indoor location solutions. But with more than 50 companies to choose from and at least 10 unique technologies, it is hard to judge who will make it into the winner's circle. There is no early leader to put money on, and unlike other location-based markets like mapping, I expect this market to support many competitors and not be dominated by a few.

Sure the utility business model is changing, but not so fast
Smart Grid News
The changing utility business model has been a major theme in the news and industry circles this year, with many bemoaning that fact that as distributed generation and energy efficiency proliferate, utilities sell less of their product. The trend has even been dramatically called the "utility death spiral." Scary.

Making sense of the 2014 Esri International User Conference
Directions Magazine
The challenges of hosting an event for 14,000-plus software users are numerous. Esri has done the yeoman's work for decades, figuring out how to provide each user with a valuable experience. This year, a variety of factors made the event even more challenging for both Esri and its users. While I'm addressing the event itself, I want to suggest that these challenges are also impacting Esri's relationship with its user community.

The Associated Press via U.S. News & World Report
University and college professors are complaining that government restrictions on the use of small drones are likely to stifle academic research. In a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration, 30 professors said a clarification the agency issued last month on what rules model aircraft hobbyists must follow would eliminate the ability of researchers to use small, unmanned aircraft on low-altitude flights over private property.
