For years, the “mobile web” has slowly been gaining steam. Recently, however, there are indications that a tipping point may have been reached, marking the start of explosive global growth in adoption and usage. Now then is the time to start thinking about the future of the mobile web, and positioning ourselves and our businesses accordingly.
RI Nexus and Providence Geeks have joined forces to pull together an All-State Team of fantastic mobile web thinkers and practitioners to address the questions: Where is the mobile web headed in terms of technologies, business models and user experiences? What is the best way to prepare for and take advantage of these trends?
Providence Geek Co-Founder and O’Reilly Media Senior Editor, Brian Jepson, will kick us off with a short survey of the mobile web to date, addressing the question of, how did we get to this key moment in its evolution? Twitter: @bjepson
From there, I will moderate what promises to be a lively, informative panel:
Joel is the CEO of East Greenwich-based Cronk Software , a firm specializing in the design and development of high-end mobile applications and games. Prior to Cronk, Joel was the Founder and Chief Geek of Geek.com (acquired 2007 by NameMedia, Inc.), and previous to that the Director of Mobile and Wireless Solutions for GTECH. Twitter: @joelgeek
Annette is the CEO of Providence-based MoFuse, Inc a fast growing mobile publishing platform and network, and an expert on the intersection of the mobile web and online advertising.
