Debuting host Abgail Adams of CatalystCode rounds up the best mobilist blogging of the week on Carnival #171, with a full range of topics in the hot and getting hotter mobile arena. She included the post I made on SmartMobs.com about Toddler Techniques for iPhones, which features my grand-nephew demoing his smartphone tyke-swiping technique.
Abby also include the start page for the web slides I prepared for my talk on The Long Tail of Mobile Learning last week at the Design for Mobile conference in Lawrence, Kansas. The image with this post shows me (right) during Q&A by D4M’s hosts Steven Hoober and Barbara Ballard.
The Design for Mobile conference is a project of Little Springs Design, which was founded in Lawrence by Barbara Ballard to be a key focus of mobile user research and design and the center of a [I think "the"] mobile design community. Certainly the people who attended and the concepts that were networked set the 2-day D4M apart as a creative think tank for our hot and getting hotter mobile design challenges.
Little Springs Design in Lawrence, Kansas is proof of the potential in our increasingly virtual, connected, global times for vision and innovation to be geography agnostic and tethered to talent and niche.
