Bloggers galore at GSA

Since it seems there are going to be quite a few of us at GSA, I thought I'd put together a post with information on some of the talks and posters your favorite geobloggers are going to be giving. (Sadly, I won't be presenting anything this meeting, but I couldn't pass up the chance to finally meet some of the folks I only know from the interwebs.) This is a bit of a highlights list, but I'm always happy to add more if I missed something - let me know!
