“Open Space” Unconference Opens Arms to Emergent-Standards Mobile Industry


Forum One reaches out to carriers, equipment and device manufactures, and content producers to join the Web 2.0 party at an open conversation about mobile communities at their newest (un)conference

San Francisco, CA – March 12, 2008 – Forum One Communications issued an invitation today to mobile device manufacturers, network equipment manufacturers, and wireless carriers to join the mobile industry in an open discussion at their newest unconference. The Mobile Communities Unconference is taking place in Palo Alto, California on Thursday, March 20, 2008.

In his Online Community Report blog, Bill Johnston, Chief Community Officer for Forum One, describes the Mobile Unconference: “We have brilliant community and mobile thought leaders coming to this conference, including representatives from Google, YouTube, AOL, Intel, and Cisco. I’m looking forward to a lively discussion about mobile platforms beginning to open up and the real innovations like OHA’s Android. The Mobile Communities Unconference is really about starting the mobile conversation with the Online Community sector.”

The Unconference format is unique in that it allows the participants to set the agenda. The Mobile Communities Unconference promises to be an engaging, provocative and educational experience. Mobile communities are a hot topic and have a huge potential in the U.S. given the projected explosive growth of mobile social networks. And with the likely value that will be generated from these networks, the Mobile Communities Unconference is particularly well-timed. “New mobile-based online experiences are getting very sophisticated, enabled by devices like Apple’s iPhone,” says Johnston. “And, you can’t argue with the shear scale of mobile penetration, which dwarfs that of the PC. I think we’re moving into a high growth period and this conference should provide insights into the possibilities”
