GEOINT 2011 kicked off with a bang with the opening keynote address by General James R. Clapper, Director of National of National Intelligence (DNI), which laid out his future vision of a more effective Intelligence Community that will focus more on Intelligence Integration in a time of tremendous budget cuts. In case you missed it, we have the full video of the keynote here.

It’s usually around the March timeframe that we start having GEOINT Symposium withdrawals. Seriously, when else can everyone in the community get together and learn from the highest echelon of leaders, network with colleagues, customers, partners and friends — and experience something truly unique (think GEOINT 2010 and the Super Dome)? Well, just when you think you have had enough of winter and need a shot of inspiration, USGIF just announced the first round of keynote speakers for GEOINT 2011, taking place back in San Antonio this year. Let’s just say that if this is the first round of speakers being announced, then USGIF opened the first set with nothing but a string of hits. Read the full post to see the list of confirmed (to date) speakers for GEOINT 2011.

Welcome to the Monday Morning News Kick Off post from got geoint? While we traditionally make this post more of a news round up, we are only going to focus on one story: the announcement of General James Clapper’s nomination to be the Director of National Intelligence (DNI). This is certainly very exciting new for the GEOINT Community, as General Clapper is revered as being the “father” of GEOINT. And, we wanted to remind our readers that we did an exclusive Q&A with General Clapper when we launched this blog at GEOINT 2008. Here’s the link to that post. And, finally, we have included the video of President Obama and General Clapper announcing the nomination from the White House Rose Garden on Saturday. Congratulations General Clapper!
