Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

I had a great time talking with Jeff and John the other night. As I listened to the podcast, I noticed a few things that I should clarify.

Lat/Long = Latitude & Longitude, and x and y way of locating a geographic point on a map. For example, the Lat/Long of Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, KS is -95.25438, 38.954069.
We used the library by Michael Schwarz. It is very easy to use and had wanted to talk more about it, but we ran out of time. All you do is modify your web.config, register your class for AJAX, and give your function an Ajax.AjaxMethod() attribute. Create a function in Javascript that will talk to the function and another Javascript function that will listen for your .net function to complete. Then just call your first javascript function from an event of a control and it will take care of all the dirty work. You can even pass structures between .net and javascript using the library if you make your structures serializable. Everything you need to know is here.

Some websites/blogs that I talk about.

Where's Tim - find me on a Google Map
EnGraph - the company I work for.
Kyle Archer - my boss
Matt Strausz - my roommate that blogs about Kansas DUI laws.
Robert Scoble
ProgrammableWeb - good source for API's
Pete Cashmore - good source of Web 2.0 information
Diggnation - talked about Where's Tim here
Rick O'Shea - has radio show in Ireland and talked a bit about us.

We are working on some cool things at EnGraph and I look forward to talking with Jeff and John more as GPS gets bigger.
