    • Newsroom in your pocket
      Covering breaking news with a mobile phone
      Strategies to engage with tomorrow’s news consumers – and creators
    • “Singularity”
      “The computer in your cellphone today is a million times cheaper and a thousand times more powerful and about a hundred thousand times smaller than the one at MIT in 1965. What used to fit in a building now fits in your pocket.
      “What fits in your pocket now will fit inside a blood cell in 25 years.”
      --Futurist Ray Kurzweil

    • “Inflection Points”
      Iran: Twitter+Mobile+Facebook
      “Hamed” is an Iranian refugee living in the Netherlands, and it was from there that he posted the death of 27-year-old NedaSalehiAfghaSoltani.
      "I am no hero," Hamedsaid. "The real hero is my friend who risked his life making the video."
      A Facebook friend, that is. Hamed never met the author of the film except on the social networking site.
    • “Inflection Points”
      World Cup Soccer 2010
      ESPN announced an $100MM plus investment into mobile video in 2011.
      “Fans don’t care how they get their content as long as they get it.
      “Mobile is personal, mobile is digital, mobile is video and mobile is social.”
      --Brian Colbert, senior director of mobile ad sales at ESPN
    • “Inflection Points”
      Tablets, tablets, everywhere!
      More than 80 tablets announced at the CES show.
      Each wants you to develop content for their store (Apple’s iPad App store now larger than their laptop biz)
      “Hope you have a good browser on that thing…”
    • A Brief Aside About Equipment
      “The best camera in the world is the one that you have with you when the picture happens.”
      Way too many variables in each market to make a blanket recommendation (carrier coverage, local HSDPA servers down-rezzing videos, etc.)
