Dear Hack-a-Thon Participant, EarthCube Brokering CA Member, ESIP 
Members, and Others:

Welcome to the Hack-a-Thon 2 events from the EarthCube Brokering Concept 
Award team.  If you participated in Hack-a-Thon 1, let me thank you 
again.  Hack-a-Thon 2 will feature a different brokering solution, the 
ESRI Geoportal.  This introductory webinar for Hack-a-Thon 2 will take 
place next week.  We are holding it twice in order to accommodate more 
participation.  The webinars will be held on Thursday, August 16 at 
10:00 EDT (see the EarthCube event 
for details), and then again on Friday, August 17 at 15:00 EDT (see the 
EarthCube event 
for details).  Please check your local time based on the EDT times given.

There is nothing in particular that you need to do to prepare for this 
webinar.  We will introduce the progress that the Brokering team 
has made since the Charrette 2 event in June, review the EarthCube goals 
for brokering, do a demo of the ESRI Geoportal for brokering, and 
discuss the plans for Hack-a-Thon 2.  The Hack-a-Thon itself will take 
place on August 31 at 11:00 EDT (event details to be announced).  The 
time between the webinar next week and the Hack-a-Thon will allow you to 
make sure your services and client applications can interact with the 
broker.  A member from the ESRI Geoportal team will be available to 
assist in the event there are problems to resolve.

Material related to the ESRI Geoportal being used for Hack-a-Thon 2 can 
be found on the Brokering EarthCube site on the Hack-a-Thon 2 page 
The WebEx details for this webinar will be sent to you early next week 
when they are available.

Thanks again, and we look forward to a successful webinar and follow-up
