Is there an Echo in here?

Our new version of Echo myPlace was recently featured in Geospatial Solutions magazine.

In the article, Mary Jo works with me as I try to explain how Echo's geosocial interactivity stands to redefine "data-sharing" — from local news to micro-targeted marketing. Some excerpts include -

"Just about the time that most people were catching on to the idea of blogging, bloggers were already establishing and driving a new form of social commentary. Today that trend is a well-established "new normal" for online information distribution.

Come this summer, however, we may see a new breed of geosocial commentators rippling through the Web space. "Echoers" — users of The Carbon Project's Echo myPlace (EMP) geosocial networking software — will share georeferenced Internet videos, news, photos, and other community-related information with other users through EMP's people-to-people technology and Microsoft's Virtual Earth.

Based on Microsoft's new Internet media platform Silverlight 2, EMP integrates a 2D and 3D neo-mapping environment with real-time content to bring georeferenced virtuality to any bit of information users want to share."
