Today, I chaired the Business of Mobile 2.0 session today at Mobile World Congress Barcelona
I believe that this was the single largest attendee session so far(outside of keynotes) and we have been getting lots of great feedback!
Glad also GSMA could arrange the larger room and the more interactive format which helps in view of the audience
When we first thought of this session, we wanted to add a lot of detail and perspective i.e. its easy to add ’2.0′ after anything but very hard to take the ‘cross stack’ view across networks, devices, platforms, APIS and right down to the SIM!
So, the fact that we had the Web(Google, Yahoo), Operators(Vodafone, O2), Devices(LG), Platforms(Qualcomm), Content innovators(fusionone), APIs(vodafone, RCS), SIM(Gemalto), Social networks(Xtract) and innovators(Fortumo, Goojet Tony Fish, Fring, New Bay) in one room helped a lot!
The session extended beyond 5:40(the scheduled time) to 6 and even then we had a significant audience
Am exhausted but happy
Many thanks again to all the speakers and the attendees and special thanks to Rudolph, Lydia and tech team at GSM
Will blog more with details.
