Mobile Networking and Communications Fair

The next Mobile Networking meeting will be held in conjunction with the Mobile Communications Fair coming up on FEB 23 (see ). Although the Mobile Com Fair will be focused on smartphones and communications devices, the MobiNet meeting will be about eBooks and eReaders.  If you’re not familiar with the Mobi Net group, we meet bi-monthly to present and discuss a range of topics on mobile technologies.  Emphasis is on open group discussion, and we structure our meetings so that we open with a sort of show-and-tell forum we call the Mobile Blast.  During this time, anyone can get up and show off or discuss their interest, expertise or experience with any aspect of mobile technologies in short presentations that can be anywhere from 1 – 10 minutes (or longer if necessary – we’re flexible).  With the explosion of eBooks, eReaders and <tablets> on the market lately, we thought it might be appropriate to let these technologies guide the next meeting.  Consider joining us at our next meeting and bring along any discussion you might have about eBooks or eReaders, or any mobile technology for that matter.  Or if any of you know of anyone with interests or experience using eBooks/eReaders, perhaps you could steer them our way.  The meeting will be from 11:30-1 in the Newcomb South Meeting Room during the Mobile Communications Fair on TUES 23 FEB.  For more info about Mobi Net visit our video blog at

Also, for anyone who’s really interested, the TechConnect folks at ITC that are hosting the Mobile Com Fair, are looking for people to participate in a panel discussion on the “Future of Mobile Communications”.  I’m hoping to help them find 4-5 people who would like to serve on such a panel.  Let me know if you are interested and I’ll fill you in on the details.

Thanx everyone!
