“Over the Radar” is premiering for its kick-off season at Where 2.0 on April 19, 2011 during Ignite. This new chat fest sponsored by NAVTEQ Network For Developers, hosted by Brady Forrest, program co-chair of Where 2.0, will feature this team of dynamic visionaries who will discuss and in some cases debate the future of experiencing location in today’s hectic world.
