Mobile Monday workshop at Lift10 Mobile Monday Switzerland workshop will bring mobility at the heart of the Lift10 conference addressing 1000 participants from 40 countries. This year’s topic “Connected People” is just the right one for mobile innovation: people. Known as end-users, consumers, clients, participants, prosumers, citizens or activists, people ultimately define the success of all technological and entrepreneurial projects. Come and discuss with us social and cultural success factors and the technology cocktail of smartphones, application stores. And enjoy drinks and cocktail with Lift and MoMo “mobile connected people“. They will present their views on the following topics :

  • Communities : Web 2.0 celebrated the so-called “amateur revolution” and triggered the “Mobile Web“. What did we learn in the past 5 years? How is the mobile Web progressing and what are social / technical challenges ahead?
  • Old new media : Newspapers are struggling, TV is not sure of what the future holds, Music consumption has moved away from the major record companies. What is the role of mobile media and entertainment in this new media space and how will mobile engage people?
  • Evolution of privacy : what is privacy in the 21st Century? Is personal security threatened by the massive collection of data? How much will people share location, phone contacts and real-time messages.

Format for this meeting: Short presentations by MoMo speakers from chapters worldwide, followed by panel.
