ILWIS Joins 52 North Sean Gillies 2007-02-01 00:00 body_html_template Comments Re: ILWIS Joins 52 North Author: Allan 52North is associated with people from the University of Muenster, which is geographically pretty close to ITC in Enschede. I think there's a bit of cross pollinization there. Re: ILWIS Joins 52 North Author: pat ITC is actually one of the founders and a driving force of 52North, this step therefore seems to be obvious.

Re: ILWIS Joins 52 North Author: Allan What? You actually looked up some facts? Whatever happened to truthiness? Re: ILWIS Joins 52 North Author: Sean Allan, I'm guilty of not looking past OSGeo to see what was actually happening. No contest. I don't understand where truthiness comes in. Re: ILWIS Joins 52 North Author: Allan Sean - the truthiness thing was aimed at Pat who clearly went way beyond the bounds and looked up the facts. There is an interesting twinge of tension surrounding 52N because of the ESRI angle. I think it's strictly because people don't trust ESRI to play nicely in Open Source. But when you think about it, nowadays pretty much every major player in any software-centric industry should be dipping their toe into the FOSS water. So ESRI was bound to do it somehow, and, just like the initial suspicion around Autodesk, they will have to weather a bumpy period of acclimatization.
