This data standard has been adopted by museums, libraries, governments and universities. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Trunity Hosts The Digital Universe ( see Wikipedia ) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For further discussion examples: EarthPortal CosmosPortal OceansPortal </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Access to existing human rights document archive </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Over one hundred of the core human rights declarations, treaties and laws available to re-publish and organize in your own network. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Highly respected existing user community </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Experts in science, education, economic development and human rights. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Economic Advantage <ul><li>Web-Based Platform Means No Infrastructure Costs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The Trunity Web Service uses best practices for redundancy, mirroring and security on Sun web servers in collocations on an Internet backbone. No user-side equipment is required. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>No Out of Pocket Cost to Build Initial FWII DSN </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Trunity and FWII will work together with HRRCA to develop and solicit funding for hosting, training and capacity expansion. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Opportunity to Form and Seek Funding as a Digital Universe (DU) Steward Coalition </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Running on the same platform, The Digital Universe Foundation is sponsoring the creation of the most trusted network of informational portals on the Internet. </li></ul></ul>*The National Council for Science and The Environment (NCSE), as the secretariat for the DU Earth Portal Coalition recently secured multi-year funding to “ create a Learning Community for Solutions to Climate Change ” on the Trunity platform
  7. 7. People Advantage <ul><li>Minimal Training Requirements for Self-Sufficiency </li></ul><ul><ul><li>More people can be trained more easily providing for an ever increasing community of people publishing on the web. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Trunity Websites Reinforces Digital Literacy Skills </li></ul><ul><ul><li>As a CMS, the Trunity platform brings together core digital literacy skills (word processing, file management, web-based tools) in a coherent, organized way. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Organizing Around Dewey Decimal Concepts </li></ul><ul><ul><li>User defined directories employ the Dewey Decimal methodology </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Think: Localized Context Sensitive Pedagogy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Consider the implications if anyone or group can build multimedia enabled virtual classrooms, curricula and resources at the community level. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Increased Productivity of interns and volunteers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Volunteers can work from any computer with an Internet connection. </li></ul></ul>

Several leading researchers initiated the Diabetes Information Portal (DIP) project in early 2007. For the last eighteen months, they have been preparing informatics foundations and concepts as published in the Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology 2008 and in partnership with several medical research institutions. They are in the process of forming a coalition of the world's top scientists in the field of Diabetes to participate as editors and expect to apply for Digital Universe status this fall.  Such status allows them to apply for federal grants as a partner.
