Ok. Back at Blogworld for day 2, starting off with the morning keynote on “A World Gone Mobile” – should be right up my alley, right?
OH, BTW, the Enterprise is going to be passing us at about 11:30 – may need to run out to grab a few shots (brought the Nikon), so who knows, you may get a “multimedia” post today as well!
Chuck Martin speaking… A few minor facts wrong but not too bad so far. Just “outed myself” as being (formally) with a mobile phone company.
Mobile adds time and location to supply and demand
Call to action capability
Pull vs a push medium
Mobile websites should be less, not more.
2011: 7 trillion SMS sent
MMS higher open rates
More to come soon…
Well, I’m at Blogworld NY for the week. It’s lunch time and since I’ve got a wifi signal (intermittent here but not terrible) I should write a blog post, no?
My initial impressions to date are “eh.” I’ve found out that I’m shut out of quite a few of the sessions I want to attend because I didn’t they the right package when I signed up. Honestly, i didn’t even realize there were different “levels” – hopefully my virtual ticket add-on will at least let me download the sessions I’m not able to get into.
As far as the sessions I HAVE been to, it’s been good, good, not so good. A quick sub for a presenter who no-showed did the best of what he had, and was actually pretty decent – check out froknowsphotos.com. Jared was the sub and did a good job talking off the cuff for 45 mins.
Also it seems a bit silly that while the sessions started today, the exhibits aren’t open until tomorrow.
Nice to see they have large power strips on all the lunch tables, giving my iPhone a quick and much needed boost during the lunch break.
More to come later…
