Google announcing the deprecation of SWF export functionality for presentations from the Google Documents List API. They are taking this action due to the limited demand for this feature, and in order to focus engineering efforts on other aspects of the API.
Clients currently making the following request to the API are affected by this change.
We recommend clients currently using SWF exports switch to PDF exports, using the appropriate exportFormat value.
They are disabling SWF exports in the coming weeks. Clients attempting to export presentations as SWF after the exports are disabled will receive an HTTP 400 response.
For more information on exporting presentations, see the Google Documents List API documentation. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out in the forums.
The task of finding the right supplier is never easy, especially when services are concerned. Industry specific directories can be a good starting point for preselecting potential candidates for contact and further evaluation. SpatialSource.com.au is the leading portal for the Australian spatial industry. It publishes a directory of suppliers of “all things spatial”. There are over 200 providers listed in a variety of categories, divided into five main groups: Data Supply, Geospatial Services, Hardware Supply, Services to Spatial Industry and Software Supply – from top tier multinationals to small operators like aus–emaps.com.

If you are a local supplier of spatial products or services consider registering your company in Spatial Source Online Directory – listing is free. The directory offers good exposure to potential customers. Help your prospective clients find you!
Google just announced that Boost, their new simplified Local Adword Product, is now available in the following cities:
* San Jose
* Charlottesville (VA)
* Chapel Hill
* Washington D.C.
* Cross Plains (TX)
* Portland (ME)
* All local businesses in Illinois.
The announcement indicates that Boost as configured is working well. The borad and rapid roll out indicates that Google is ramping quickly and we should see Boost available nationally and probably internationally in the not too distant future.
I am curious from those of you that have tried it, your impressions.
