Yesterday, I was distinctly unimpressed at witnessing how Motorola were executing their social media competition and posted this note as a result: Is giving a prize to celebrate follower numbers really silly? In the post, I wondered what noted social media expert James Whatley made of it. James is Engagement Strategy Director for 1000heads. He [...]
I’ve got a social media question for you this evening. Have a read of this tweet from MotoMobile: We’re nearing the 20,000 follower mark! To thank you for your support, we’re giving a Moto device to our 20,000th follower! Now the chaps behind the Moto twitter service are really smart. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying what [...]

We’re putting on an event this month in Paris, France. I’ll have more details soon — but I can say that the event will be in the last week of this month and it’s set to feature some of the hottest mobile developers in France
I’ve had a few people ask me why I’ve kept Mobile Developer TV with the default run-of-the-mill Wordpress theme at the moment. The answer is simple — I’m still working out the design
May 4, 2009 6:31 pm to 10:31 pm Mobile Monday Silicon Valley was fantastic this evening. There was a huge turnout on an uncharacteristically rainy San Francisco evening for the Location-Aware app demo evening. Skyhook Wireless kindly underwrote the bar and gave a pitch at the beginning of the series of presentations, outlining their rather excellent range of location services available to mobile developers
May 7, 2009 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm Mobile Tron is Matthew Bennett’s inaugural mobile event for San Francisco and it’s taking place this Thursday at a rather swish design gallery art space (”Receiver Design”). The Facebook event is here and you’re welcome to come along if you’re into mobile and you’ve got something to say. I’m taking the camera equipment along so if you’d like to get on camera for Mobile Developer TV (the launch is coming shortly), come along
