Subject: Public Warning Challenge

As I noted here before, the Internet Society is inviting any organization 
involved in an aspect of public warning to endorse this statement:

   Collaborative actions are necessary to assure that standards-based, 
all-media, all-hazards public warning becomes an essential infrastructure 
component available to all societies worldwide.

The Web site that provides background to this Challenge statement ( 
http://www.isoc.org/challenge ) references the OASIS Common Alerting 
Protocol (CAP) standard.

At http://www.isoc.org/challenge/endorsements.php you can see that the list 
of endorsing organizations now includes:

  - Alliance for Earth Observations
  - AMBER Alert Consortium
  - ComCARE Alliance
  - Critical Distance
  - Emergency Interoperability Consortium
  - Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI)
  - incident.com
  - Internet Society (ISOC)
  - National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO)
  - NOAA's National Weather Service
  - NYU Center for Catastrophe Preparedness & Response
  - Partnership for Public Warning
  - PubSub Concepts, Inc.
  - Teton Tectonics
  - United Nations International Startegy for Disaster Reduction (UN/ISDR)
      Platform for the Promotion of Early Warning
  - United States Geological Survey (USGS)

This is already an impressive list, but additional endorsements are 
certainly welcome!
