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, 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

This work is being support by the National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program.
