Second NSF Grant Awarded for Echo myPlace
The Carbon Project is pleased to announce that the National Science Foundation has awarded us a second grant to continue developing the Geosocial Networking application Echo myPlace.
Based on Microsoft's new Internet media platform Silverlight 2, Echo's geosocial interactivity stands to redefine ‘data-sharing’ - from video news to event promotions to micro-targeted advertising for businesses.
Echo myPlace is a people-to-people, Web-based social application that uses the new Microsoft Silverlight 2 framework and the latest 2D mapping and 3D visualization technology from Microsoft Virtual Earth.
Echo myPlace creates a gateway that brings together professionally produced video content like Hulu.com, user-generated local news, advertising, commerce and consumers and ties them directly to locations around the globe.
A beta version of Echo myPlace will be available mid 2008. For more information on Echo myPlace beta contact info@TheCarbonProject.com.
This work is being support by the National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program.
