So, It Starts Once Again

Again today I had the GIS purists and my ESRI rep in my office tell me "Google Earth is not GIS." Then what is ArcExplorer 9.2? By the very definition of "Geographic Information System" one would think that it would be "a system that manages geographic information." Now, I claim not to be a genius, but aren't place names, NavTeq data, and the NaturalView dataset geographic information managed by a system? Guess we'll have to go to the Google Lobby in Washington for a ruling. Uff da.

Does PDQ, the purist, have the link to your blog yet?
