  • Community Publishing (Intellipedia) – Wikis enable users to develop concept articles online to expose it to many users. As experienced in NCES, we ran into problems when people commented on previous versions of our whitepapers. We would have to adjudicate comments from previous document and results comment conflicts from various different stakeholders. The GIGapedia is used a real time access to the article so people can update, change, or provide their own additional point to the subject area. Example: Wikipedia, Intellipedia; MAX Federal Community isn’t as freewheeling as some other government wikis - Office of Management and Budget and other federal agencies work on budgets, financial management and other executive issues. The community is a project of OMB’s Budget Formulation and Execution Line of Business, which identified collaboration as a capability that would facilitate the work of those who formulate the federal budget. OMB was able to share draft policies and procedures with agencies, modify those documents and avoid unnecessary work later, Relationship Building (SNS) – The SNS will allow users to identify similar characteristics and expertise in DISA and throughout DoD. This will identify people, which you could work with or bounce ideas off of based on their current project or their expertise. Since the individual profile defines their current projects, expertise, and hobbies, as a human being we usually try to find something in an individual that we relate to and it helps us bridge that gap between people. By identify the users expertise, projects, or hobbies, it enables people to develop those relationships to users without having to wait for some moment in time such as an introduction for a users to get to know someone, this will allow user to be able to find individuals that may help them with some decision papers or development Example: Facebook Community Discussion (DISA CTO Blog) – Blog are used to express someone opinion or experience in a certain area or subject. We are using the DISA CTO Blog to gauge and involved the DISA users discussions with various technology areas and issues in the DISA community. We are looking for two things 1. Comments on some of the technology research that we are providing on the GIGapedia, 2. we are trying to gather some of the specific DISA users experiences in various directorates. We are trying to develop a forum for individuals to express their concerns or successes about some technologies based on their experience. Example: Auto Industry developed a blog to develop the new engine for their automobile by engaging with their customers. When they defined their specification users indicates some issues with their development and changed their engineering design; DIA BLog; Dept of Navy CIO Robert Carey, has his own Blog on www.doncio.navy Information Integration (CTO Research Mashup) – Integrates several Web applications or information from site to one location. In the CTO office, we look at a variety of websites for information on current, emerging, and future technologies. It takes a lot of time to search and look at each of these sites for content pertinent to our individual research areas. So, we developed this mashup to streamline the process so that users can go to this one site and type in their research area or search word and results from all the websites are provided to the users. Example: GCCS, Intelligence Mashup; DIA is using mashups to display data provided by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency from Google Earth and Arc GIS Explorer, a service from ESRI. The agency has created mashups for intelligence briefings and built several portal-like applications and user interfaces that let users add mashup visualizations to their own personalized Web environment
  • On the wireless front, there are many areas of development, evolution and concern. As this chart depicts, commercial wireless covers virtually every conceivable area, from personal area networks to wide area networks spanning the globe. All of these present an enriched capability, along with the problems of sending data over the airwaves. Security is the foremost concern, and must be taken seriously to utilize all that we see. The proper management of spectrum is most important, with the need to respect host nations in what they allow and where they allow it. The key to tie this all in together is Persistent Connectivity (IEEE 802.21) which would allow seamless and consistently authenticated connectivity over multiple wireless technologies. This is one of the biggest stumbling blocks to allow the user to be truly free to travel anywhere, and to remain secured.
