August networking event

August will see Mobile Monday London take a slight summer break. But rather than shut up shop for a month we thought we would organise a networking event at a pub/bar in central London. As always this represents an opportunity to meet and greet thought leaders in the mobile industry. The venue will be decided once we have a rough idea of the number of attendees. Please register yourself for MoMoLondon and the network event at our web site. We are also looking for a sponsor for the evening, if you wish to sponsor and host this or future events please contact the organisers.

Originally uploaded by appelquist.
We did it! Last night, we ran our 9th consecutive Mobile Monday London event, and it was our most ambitious to date. 130+ mobile industry professionals packed the room that our gracious host 3i provided (they had to bring in extra seats). The topic for the night was funding - how do you get it, when do you get it, what most excites VCs. Paul Cooper put together and MC'd this even with great aplomb. Many thanks to Paul, our 5 presenting companies (Weeworld, ActiveMedia Technology, Otodio, RedBend and Zzizzl Films) and to our VC panellists for a great event. And special congratulations to our prizer winner as selected by the panellists, Zzizzl Films, who walked out the door with a cheque for £1000!

Mobile User Experience ... a good experience!

The Crowd at Mobile Monday May 8Another succesful meeting for Mobile Monday London was held at Savoy Place on May the 8th, the theme was the mobile user experience. Thanks to SurfKitchen who hosted the evening and provided drinks for the networking afterwards.

The speakers this month were Michel Quazza (CEO SurfKitchen), Samuel Sweet (Director of Sales and Marketing for Ikivo) and Dr Rachel Jones (founder of Instrata) plus a demonstration of a low rate call solution from Nick Hanncock (of Intelli-Call Ltd). The presentations covered the various areas of user experience from building mobile web sites, using applications installed on to the phones, the technologies and standards that aid the user experience and looking at the whole experience from the users perspective.

The podcast will be available soon on this link along with the podcasts from the previous 3 events (thanks to Paul Cooper and Tom Hunt for recording, editing and hosting these). Pictures have already been posted up to flickr and I think there are more to come.

One thing near the start of the meeting that could have gone soooo wrong was a live video call from Dan Appelquist at the Global Mobile Monday Summit in Helsinki ... I hope this comes out well on the podcast :) Congratulations to Andy Tiller and all at Cognima for coming 3rd in the global peer awards for Shozu.

Thanks to everyone who came along, more will be posted about the up coming events here soon.
