LoSoNet 2006 Makes P2P Connections

There's a new conference in town - Location-Based Social Networking (LoSoNet™) for Crisis Management. LoSoNet 2006 will be held at the prestigious Sheraton National in Arlington, Virginia on Tuesday, October 3, 2006.

LoSoNet 2006 provides a forum to connect the world of social networking with location-based information. The conference focuses on emerging methods to achieve situational awareness for defense and homeland security programs. The conference also examines how peer and ad hoc networks can provide new levels of situational awareness, fusion and survivability that rigid command and control hierarchies can't match. New approaches to improve situational awareness, including emergent intelligence, will be highlighted in this unique forum.

The speakers will highlight how federal, state, tribal and local stakeholders can accomplish the following -

- Share and search information about locations of interest

- Connect to and collaborate with groups of peers with similar information needs

- Break down barriers to information sharing and situational awareness

- Build resilient communities and networked organizations

- Achieve and improve situational awareness in the mission critical areas of prevention, protection, response, recovery and preparedness

(this comment probably should have been under the "infraGard" post but no problem)

Sorry about that, I had planned on filming the demos at InfraGard but time and the event got the best of me - I just couldn't pull it off.

It's probably for the best, I'm not so good with a video camera.

We're going to try and get some animated demos online soon to fill in the gap - but one of the real challenges is demonstrating the P2P. It doesn't convey too well with single screen videos (people kinda scrath their heads at it).

What works really well are the demos of CarbonCloud working in ad hoc P2P mode - bouncing the notes around a group via wireless connection.

Stay tuned, and thanks for your interest and patience - everyone will be able to use it soon.
