The Military Libraries Training Workshop (MLTW) held last week, December 6-9, was a great success for Deep Web Technologies. After a quick trip to Europe to participate in the PTFS Europe Customer Day, I traveled to Arlington, VA to visit with customers at the MLTW, and tell the Explorit Everywhere! story to new prospects.
I gave a Two Minute Talk on Monday during the sponsor showcase (see picture) to introduce Explorit Everywhere!, our next-generation federated search product. As it turns out, several customers attended the Workshop and introduced me to prospects who could benefit from Explorit Everywhere!.
Tuesday, many of us toured the National Defense University Library (also a customer of ours), and afterwards had a great dinner at the Ft. McNair Officers’ Club. Of particular interest to me was the talk by Dr. Paul Severance, Professor of Military Science at the National Defense University and head docent at the Lincoln Assassination Conspirator’s Trail Restored Courtroom. He went into great detail about the Lincoln conspiracy, assassination, pursuit, trial and aftermath, all of which I found fascinating. I also now have The Conspirator on my “to-watch” movie list, as it was highly recommended by Dr. Severance.
I was disappointed to hear that this workshop will only be held every other year now. Deep Web Technologies is already planning to be at the next MLTW in 2017!
