DirectionsMag asks "Five Questions About ((Echo))MyPlace"

((Echo))MyPlace is featured this week in Directions Magazine. Nice article with some quotables -

"What's cool is that the content is likely to be created and shared by the same people you see in your local grocery store or coffee shop, not some big company thousands of miles away pumping you up with what they want you to see."


"We took a fresh approach, based on a new generation of Internet media technologies, that gives power back to users. This is different because Echo is powered by everyday people and a philosophy that says, 'Let people create their own channels and target their message to their local community.'


"This is different than being fed content from some cable TV network or a massive Internet company."

sounds really neat...as an active facebook and myspace user and a GIS professional, I am extremely eager to see how this technology will work and look. Will there be a beta release soon?

Jason,

Yes, there will be a beta release soon. Lots of cool features based on a new generation of Internet media technologies that gives power back to users. as we've talked about Echo is powered by everyday people and a philosophy that says - Let people create their own channels and target their message to their local community.
