Darla Mack on: Calling All Women Mobilists!!!

Debi and I have occasionally exchanged comments on how few women there are in the mobile industry (I counted barely a handful at the last Bay Area MoMo). There are a few Women Mobilists I know and admire, such as Darla and Anina. I don’t know Emily, but her site is an amazing resource for […]

Link: Smart Mobs: Thanksgiving Carnival of the Mobilists. Welcome to this week’s Thanksgiving edition of Carnival of the Mobilists.

Work as grade school?

I’ve been preaching simple SMS- and browser-based services for the mass market, but then Chris pointed out emerging markets, where the next billion phone users are coming from*. After that, when I was in San Francisco, talking […]
