NSF Grant Awarded for Location-Based Social Networking Application

BURLINGTON, MA, July 7, 2008 - The Carbon Project announced today that the National Science Foundation has awarded the company 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," said Jeff Harrison, President and CEO of The Carbon Project.

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, 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 Email Contact.

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