XML in Sensors -- Conferences: Mar and April 2005 -- Will the tough questions about PubSub get straight answers?

Next Month, DC Hilton

Ref: Will they ask about the changed codes in PubSub?

Today ... already starting ... Mar 2005, Denver, CO USA

GIS XML Vocabularies and Their Applicability

  • What is industry expecting?

  • Are the search platforms aware of the industry expectations?

    . . . look at some common industry standards like Multispeak, Open GIS, and others to reveal a developer's perspective in design, implementation, and security when using XML.

    Some examples of XML and its proliferation into “mainstream”
    applications being used in the electric utility industry will also be
    reviewed.

    Questions to ask at the upcoming conferences

  • Questionable post-deployment stress-testing. Once the system is deployed, who will go back and make sure they don't change the codes?

  • Untimely problem resolution. Will they really figure out why the code changed?

  • Unclear notification. If they URI codes change in the future, how will Cell Users get notified that the code has changed?

  • Questionable demonstration in low risk scenarios. Why isn't this system already used on the PubSub platform to let users know the URI codes they may have saved have been [a] updated, [b] reviewed, or [c] changed?
  • Apparent failure to demonstrate

    It's all well and good to talk about "what PubSub, Monitor110, or the Geometric Group may give or provide," . . . but this is questionable given the service on the lower stakes system, developed over many months apparently failed to, inter alia
    A. keep the customers updated;
    B. recognize the problem with the incorrect codes; and
    C. explain why the codes were changed without adequate public notice.
  • Please explain why the following distinguished speakers at the 14-15 April 2005 Conference in DC have confidence in this back up system:
    Robert W. Corell of the American Meteorological Society & Kennedy School at Harvard and Jack Kelly, Director of NOAA's National Weather Service (invited), will speak on Sensors in Public Safety, Climate Change and Weather Forecasting and Warning.
    Mr. David Godso, lead architect for the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical Biological Defense Software Support Activity will speak about the role of sensors and interoperability in advancing the National Security Strategy.
    Here are the Jabber discussions, in view, online, and discoverable. What will Echelon find next; can PubSub get out of this; will the evidence be found overseas...?

    DoD IG Hotline Says, "Those with suspicions can call toll free (800) 424-9098, commercial (703) 604- 8569, or DSN 664-8569 to report misdeeds."

    Given the cursory investigation into war crimes in Afghanistan, Guantanamo, and Iraq...do we really expect DoD IG to look into this?

    Thousands have already died in Asia. Why do we apparently need another natural disaster to get the straight answers to simple questions?
