Finally from May 17th to 18th, Google is happy to be hosting this year's WhereCamp, the unconference for geohackers. It was hosted at Yahoo! last year and attracted more than 200 programmers, opinion leaders and geo community people. We look forward to seeing what kind of hackery this year's crowd has up their sleeves, and what they have to say about the current state of "mapping 2.0." Get more information at the WhereCamp wiki.
