Big mobile week in London

 In conference

One of the things I really like about the wordpress theme by Futurosity that I use on the site is the front page post monitor that shows which days of the month I have blogged.

The downside though is that if I don’t post very often in a given month it is pretty obvious!  Well November has been a busy month all round and between clients, speaking engagements, and a young family (and my daughter being rushed to hospital) there has not been much time for blogging.

Last week in London, it was a full on mobile week with attendance and speaking spots at both the Future of Mobile and the IIR Mobile Content conferences held in London.  Mjelly has a great summary of the comments and posts on the FOM conference, and my good friend Peggy Salz has a roundup of some of the outputs from the mobile content conference over at msearchgroove.

As I wade through the pages of electronic notes I took at both conferences, I will post a summary of each of the days as there were some great presentations and insights at each of the 4 days – so stay tuned!

Thursday night in London I am speaking at the first London Geomobile developers’ meet-up at the Google HQ in Victoria.  It is apparently already sold out.  It will be great to meet location practitioners and debate the future of location technologies and business models, and sample some great Google hospitality.

I’m already being booked up for speaking events in January 2009 – keep your eyes out for a post on a mobile retailing conference I will be speaking at early next year.  If you would like me to speak at your conference, please contact me, or have a look at some of the recent events I have spoken at.

I have a long overdue post in development on the InnoEurope conference I spoke at a few weeks ago in Tallinn, where I scored a speaker feedback score of 5.3 out of a possible 6 – with comments such as “Very inspiring, my area” and “good speaker”. 

It is great to see what is happening in Estonia, and hear a number of presentations on innovative things in the mobile, location and advertising space.

Look out for some new posts in the next few days and thanks for your continued support of London Calling.
