Next event - HTML vs. Apps–you decide: 6 June 2010

Yes, it's the perennial debate. Should you place your bets on apps or the web? Which is better? Where will you make more money? Which do customers prefer? Do they even care? In what direction are we headed? Do we have to all bow at the altar of Jobs in order to make a meagre mobile buck?

These and more questions will be tackled at our upcoming debate on Monday 6 June sponsored by the lovely folks at BlackBerry. Venue tbc but likely to be the CBI at Centrepoint.

We're just finalising the teams but if you're interested to put yourself forward to be on one of the teams, then please drop Helen a line and tell her why you think you'd be good on one of the teams. And if you don't make the team, don't worry, there will be plenty opportunity to make your comment from the floor and to be an active participant.

Oh, and if anyone has a gavel they could lend us, that would be marvellous!

Registration will close at 10am on Sunday 5 June or whenever we're full - whichever comes first. Registration is required at http://momolo.org . All registration data will be shared with our sponsor BlackBerry.


Doors open at 6pm for a 6.30pm start

Each speaker gets 5 minutes to speak and 5 minutes for questions and discussion. Each team leader will have a few minutes to wrap up with their argument for or against the motion and then we will have an audience vote.

Networking and drinks from around 8pm.

Session closes at 9.30pm
