Observations on Cartographic Tribalism by a Marauding Carto-Nerd

Just read an interesting editorial by Kenneth Field (aka The Marauding Carto-nerd). He examines his experiences from recently attending various conferences in Germany, the UK and the US. As subjective as these experiences may be, I think he makes some astute observations and valuable conclusions on the matter of Cartographic Tribalism, with a focus on the neo- vs. traditional and proprietary vs. open source cartographers. A bit lengthy, but definitely worth reading: Cartographic tribalism.
