NoGIS????

What is NoGIS? It’s a bit like NoSQL probably for the geospatial world. This article (http://blog.geoiq.com/2011/03/29/what-does-nogis-mean/) attempts to decipher the meaning. I agree that the NoGIS term can definitely be applied to the web mapping world….with so much Neogeography (that term is know very old hat I know) embracing typically everything apart from GIS to create web maps and the like. Look at any number of currently popular web mapping sites and web mash-ups…and how many sites started life in a GIS? Not many I bet.
BTW – NoGIS is the name of an event upcoming on April 6th 2011 in San Francisco. http://nogis.eventbrite.com/ 
Please post a comment if you’re going / have been to the NoGIS event. I’m keen to learn more!
