launch of mobile web 2.0 spotlight


Welcome to the mobile web 2.0 spotlight!

Coinciding with the launch of my book mobile web 2.0,

I am happy to announce that, in addition to my blog, I will also be writing for sys-con This blog on sys-con will be called ‘Mobile web 2.0 spotlight’

The mobile web 2.0 spotlight is now live. You can see the first post at welcome

(Just an intro at this stage and also the second post today called What is mobile web 2.0

The Mobile web 2.0 spotlight is a collection of the best services/products in relation to Mobile web 2.0, as I see it. In addition, I am also especially keen to highlight products from start-ups/emerging companies in this space

I am happy to receive your recommendations for excellent products / services in the mobile web 2.0 space. As you can imagine, the analysis is completely independent. If I have any affiliation with a company/product – I shall state that in the blog.

It is indeed great to work with Sys-con. I have had the pleasure of meeting the sys-con team and management, at the New York Ajax seminar in June this year. I am also speaking at the AJAX event in Santa Clara in Oct and I look forward to meeting you there if you are attending
