In the Fall of 2016, GeoMemes was deconstructed and name 'GeoMemes' retired. The people who brought you great Web Map Apps, Greg, Charles and Adam, have joined together in a new partnership called Cedar Box Ideas (CBI). CBI makes advanced, secure, map enabled web apps for First Nations and governments. Find out more about our work at www.cedarbox.ca. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In the second week of July 2015, Greg and I visited the beautiful village of Wuikinuxv alongside the Wannock River in Rivers Inlet. We were there to upgrade the Wuikinuxv's CedarBox server and to provide training on two apps: Cedar Development App (for tracking and analyzing Crown referrals) and CCIRA Marine Indigenous Laws App (for archiving and reviewing historical documents for laws content).

- an Alphabetical (A B C...) header in Contacts

- many more smaller improvements!

THROUGHOUT DECEMBER 2012, We've been hard at work creating a new theme for our SPACES social media collaboration tools. We're working with the Susan Mavor at PublicDesign.ca. The new look is lean and clean and friendly for you mobile folk.
IN NOVEMBER 2012, we rolled out new eMeetings Feature improvements that makes real-time 'chat' and 'meeting notes' more friendly to users with older (read Internet Explorer) web browsers. Now SPACE Members can happily chat and type questions during a tele-conference or video-conference.
It was a busy summer and a long time since we've sent out one of our occasional newsletters. Enjoy!
