May is finally upon us and that can only mean it's time once again for the Where 2.0 Conference! The event will be held this year in San Jose from May 19-21. The geo team here at Google looks forward to this event each year for the chance it gives us to meet with the people that are helping the geoweb grow and evolve. Our very own Lior Ron and Steve Lee will be speaking about this topic in their keynote, and there are several Googlers running workshops and talks on topics ranging from how companies are using the Google Maps API to indigenous mapping.

We hope you have plans to attend but if you don't, we're hoping we can help get you out to this great geo conference. Where 2.0 organizers have given us 1 free pass for the event, a $1,690 value, and we'd like to pass it along to someone without a ticket that really wants to be there. If you aren't already planning on going, let us know why you'd like to: describe what about the event is intriguing to you and why do you want to attend. Do you have an interesting story that makes this event particularly relevant to you? Please send us your story with this form; we'll take a look at what gets submitted and select one person to receive this complimentary pass.

If you're already planning to be at the conference, be sure to stop by our booth to say hi!
