This presentation is my interpretation to the brief laid out by the MEX11 conference around mobile creativity + expression.

I love my mobile phone and have been using it to express myself creatively for many years. In this talk I highlight some of my feelings around the explosion in this area as well as present a couple of recent case studies on mobile creativity.

As a sidenote: I don't think I've enjoyed a presentation so much in years :)

  3. 4. “ One of the problems with photo sharing is that there's still somewhat of a bottleneck on the desktop/laptop when it comes to uploading. Casual uploaders need to sort though photos, attach transfer cables, choose photo-management software or set up a filing system. Compact cameras, though inexpensive, are awkward to remember to bring with you, keep batteries charged and so on. Mobile camera-phones seemed to present the solution to this, but cameras were low resolution, UI atrocious and upload speeds frustrating. It seems that the iPhone and other smart-phones of its breed are solving these problems. For the first time, the casual photographer has a camera that they carry with them all the time, is always charged and ready to go, and will upload to the web with just a couple taps. Finally, a camera and workflow that is as simple on creation and upload side as Flickr is on the publication side. I'm curious to see how this all plays out, going forward.” Bryan Partington – Utata Tribal Photography, Dec 2008
