GEOINT 2007 - Great Show, Great People

We're leaving GEOINT later today and I have to say the event was refreshing - and very special this year.

Many times you'll go to a tradeshow and it turns out to be a collection of not-so-meaningful encounters and boring travel - but for The Carbon Project GEOINT 2007 was a high-energy experience shared with some great people.

Many thanks to everyone that took the time to visit with us and share the event - and many thanks to Microsoft Virtual Earth, what a great job pulling things together.

I leave you with one final annoucement from the Microsoft Virtual Earth booth at GEOINT this week...see you again soon.

"(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 23, 2007— Today, at the annual Geoint 2007 Symposium, the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC) announced that Microsoft Corporation has joined the consortium as a Principal Member. Government agencies worldwide are realizing the power of geospatial applications to meet their missions in ways that are unprecedented - from public safety applications to famine and hunger relief.

Through its involvement with OGC, Microsoft is able to ensure the geospatial interoperability of its technology, including its flagship geospatial offerings -- the Microsoft Virtual Earth platform - and Microsoft SQL Server 2008, which is scheduled to ship in the second quarter of calendar year 2008..."
