The Project Blackbox Tour is now out of Moscow (report is being put together now) and on its way back to England, stopping at the ExCel London (a beautiful conference center) in Royal Victory Dock on August 21st. After the show we pack up the container and its off to...APAC, the Asia-Pacific region.
The schedule looks like this:
- October 2-4: Singapore
- Oct 22-24: Beijing
- Nov 12-14: Tokyo
- Nov 21-23: Seoul
- Dec 18-20: Sydney
Its interesting when you look at the dates above how far apart the stops are spread. On the European leg of the tour we were doing a couple of countries a week, now things have to spread way out to facilitate the distances that are in the APAC region.
I put together this fine map to help illustrate what's going on here:
Well, I'm sure that isn't quite the level of detail you expected from this fine blog so I'll get more details of the travel routes as the dates get nearer I have to assume there is a boat involved like the one that originally brought us to England.
It does look like we'll have another test of SmugMug (who uses Yahoo! to reverse geocode addresses) and Google map content. I have been pleasantly surprised entering addresses into the SmugMug address field and having them return valid geo-coordinates and excellent Google Maps, I haven't been let down once. Yahoo! and Google both must be doing their work to get content from Europe. Will it be the case in the APAC region as well? We shall see!
