If you wondered why it has been quiet around here lately, I have spent the last two weeks researching and preparing for my presentation at PodCamp Perth 2007.
While I enjoyed the research and probably did too much. I strongly recommended anybody interested in mobile web usage read Consumers and Convergence (PDF) a worldwide survey carried out by KPMG. I did a decent job of the slides, I don’t think I spent enough time preparing the talk, as a result I wandered off message. However, I delivered the information I wanted to, but probably not with the emphasis I wanted, that:
- mobile web use is rising rapidly
- people are visiting social networking websites on their mobiles regularly
- people in different cultures used their phones and services differently
As usual the presentation ran over time, but that was to be expected. I had hoped for participation in the second half of the presentation. And with Sue and Frances just back from a m-learning conference, it became more of a discussion than a presentation.
