Mobile Future

Social Media Club DC - Mobile Tech Forum

It has been a week since the CTIA show and I’m still digesting all of the great keynotes and educational panels I attended in Las Vegas.

In any case, if you are in DC and you were not able to make it to CTIA 2009, please join the conversation on Wednesday, April 15, at the Social Media Club DC.  As futurists know, the mobile-social sector is hot and Larissa Fair (Director, SMC-DC) has assembled a panel that will take a look at where we are and where we are going in the sector.  The panel for the evening includes: Chris Hopkinson (DubMeNow), Barg Upender (Intridea), and Dave Levy (Edelman Digital Public Affairs).  I will be moderating the panel discussion.

Some of the topics and questions I hope to dive into next Wednesday are:

  • Mobile Marketing – Specifically, integrating mobile into your current interactive and communication efforts…
  • Perspectives on Apps – How has the "open" environment created opportunities?  Are developers (such as Intridea) seeing an increased interest from content providers to develop mobile apps (examples)? 
  • Mobile Social Movement – What’s the future look like (beyond twitter and facebook) and what does this mean?
  • m-health – An embryonic industry about to burst?  This was a big topic at CTIA…

Any questions you would like me to ask the panel?  Feel free to reach me via email – chris(at)

I hope you’ll consider joining us next Wednesday night at USTA.  Once again, all the information is here

See YOU there!
