Hello Mobile Enthusiast... and welcome to our first Mobile Tech news roundup of 2014. Any big plans for your business in 2014? Perhaps you've started some tax planning, or perhaps you've implemented some new practices and procedures for this year - the start of a fresh year is always a great time for change - perhaps some new equipment and technology are in your plans for this week - there's still some great New Year deals out there! Whatever it is please do enjoy yourself, stay safe, and be sure to look ahead and don't look back - Cheers! A little tip for you to start the year... are you interested in creating a cool social media profile for yourself? These things are fun and could be handy for sharing with your network - personal and business.

Check out more details and see this cool 2013 video via this blog post. Finally, something I like to do on a regular basis is blog... I've actually been blogging my own GeoTech opinions regularly since about 1998 and I'm still at it!

Glenn's Picks - Favorite GeoTech Blogs Posts and Features from GISuser in 2013 - Something I like to do on a regular basis is blog... I've actually been blogging my own GeoTech opinions regularly since about 1998 and I'm still at it! In addition to posting daily [almost] on the AnyGeo blog here on GISuser, I also pen my own features and opinion posts here in our "Experts" corner. The following are just some of my most popular and favorite posts from 2013... enjoy! Some of the not so surprising faves include posts that looked at Google maps, ArcGIS Online, the Crowd and beer maps!

The smartphone, past, present and future Visualized - It's always enjoyable viewing the history of cool technology, in particular via some awesome graphics and infographics.

Popular from 2013 - USGS Want You to Help Update and Crowd Source the National Map - The agency is looking for crowd participants to help enhance the National Map and currently has some 18 States open for data editing, updates, and new features. Using an OSM style effort, volunteers will update the maps, add features and even adopt a quad of their own! Register for a free account and watch for more functionality and fun features to come. The Federal government has continued to open up and also take advantage of the crowd and crowd-sourcing - well done!
