Jack Dangermond interview at FutureGov

The FutureGov's Jianggan Li has interviewed Jack Dangermond. In this interview Jack talks about ways of saving money by making better decions, server based GIS, private sector and terrorists using GIS.

Here is a quote on sharing data by goverment agencies:
The government gets a massive return on investment for sharing its data openly. And it’s not only a money issue. It’s a public policy one as well. With better planning, companies leveraging this data save on fuel and reduce their carbon footprint, thus accomplishing another government mission.
On the vision of GIS Jack says:
But the true vision is enterprise or societal GIS, with multiple agencies sharing common a geospatial infrastructure.And the technology that allows that sharing to occur is server-based GIS.
