forumoxford event: The Google session ..


As we come to three major events I am speaking in April, I am going to blog about them and if you are attending any of these, please email me at ajit.jaokar at and I shall be happy to catch up with you

The three events are

a) ForumOxford: Future Technologies Conference 2007 - This is organised by me along with Oxford University. A must attend event(but then I am biased) .. but on a serious note – with speakers from Google, Vodafone, Symbian, Three etc .. I truly believe this will be a great event.

b) O Reilly web 2.0 expo - I am speaking on Mobile Web 2.0 along with Tony Fish and

c) IMS 2.0 event in Monaco. I am conducting a workshop on Mobile Web 2.0 and IMS

Now for our Oxford event

Attend this event if you can .. and here is why .. . I think this will be truly useful to the audience since ‘How can we work with Google’ is a question which almost anyone would want to answer!

Adrian Blair: Strategic Partner Development, Google will be the keynote speaker speaking on the topic : Bringing the World’s Information to Any Device, Anywhere: Google, and what used to be called the mobile phone

- What are Google’s core strategic assets?

- How do we apply these to mobile?

- Why are partnerships critical?

- What do Google’s partners gain?
