Parsons on Tele Atlas, community mapping, and a comment on Dash Navigation

Interesting to see Ed Parson's comments re the TomTom / Tele Atlas deal... Ed discusses the significance of community driven mapping... makes me wonder how the Dash Navigation demo roll out will work out once the Dash devices ship to the testers and a crew of some 2,000 "community mappers" will start driving their neighborhoods and enhancing the data product with community input. See http://www.edparsons.com/?p=503 / http://www.dash.net/ - PS: hey dash.. why didn't you score the url dashnavigation.com?? See also this video from Dash http://www.dash.net/video.html
