Prepping For Mobile Web Wars At MobileBeat
Thursday, July 24, 2008; 8:25 AM
Today and tomorrow I am going totally mobile. And if you are in the Bay Area, so should you. It's not too late to get tickets for MobileBeat, VentureBeat's mobile conference that goes all day today. You can get a 10 percent discount on tickets by using using this code: TCMB08.
I will be there moderating a panel with Rich Miner (Google's group manager of wireless), Matt Murphy (the Kleiner Perkins Partner who runs the iFund), Sam Altman (CEO of Loopt), and J.H. Kah (SK Telecom's SVP of Business Development). We'll be exploring all the big platform shifts going on in mobile right now with the iPhone and the coming Android phones.
I will be continuing that discussion at our own Mobile Web Wars Roundtable tomorrow, which will be a live-streamed discussion. But that's sold out (the venue only holds 150 people). MobileBeat is much larger and you can still get tickets.
Here is the complete list of who is speaking:
Rich Miner, Android/Google, Group Manager, Wireless Programs
Matt Murphy, Kleiner Perkins Caulfield Byers, Partner
Ross Levinsohn, Velocity Interactive Group, Partner
Mike Baker, Nokia Interactive, Vice President
Jeff Sellinger, CBS Mobile, EVP & General Manager
John Smelzer, FOX Interactive Media, SVP & General Manager
Michael Bayle, Yahoo!, General Manager of Global Monetization
Sumit Agarwal, Google, Product Manager, Mobile
