Watch the layabout UK Mobile Industry recline at Mo Mo London

Literally.

Top marks to Mauricio Reyes who was at Mobile Monday London last night. He’s snapped an hour’s worth of footage of ultra mega boring proportions.

Is this what the Mobile Monday London team have got to work with?

Goodness me.

They’re all reclining. All sat back relaxing. When they’re spoken to by the moderator they deign to sit forward.

Most of the time they’re sat leaning back in commanding postures deigning to give us know-nothings the time of day.

Perhaps it’s the chairs that are at fault.

Perhaps it’s the people sitting in them.

Goodness me, this is the cream of the UK’s mobile industry?

Lucky I wasn’t there. I’d have been screaming from the back within the first two minutes. If they let me in, that is.

I find myself taking exception to almost every single sentence made. Particularly when David Wood of Symbian ‘2.0’ talks about listening to customers and collaborating.

If you’d like to watch the whole thing you can do so below thanks to Mauricio’s recording. There’s a bit of excitement toward the end, I’m told. Dominic Travers was there last night and has mailed me over a perspective that I’ll publish shortly.

  1. Lucky I wasn’t there. I’d have been screaming from the back within the first two minutes. If they let me in, that is.

    You can sign up at http://alpha.mobilemonday.org.uk for the next event (announced soon). I don't think they've banned anyone from attending. Unless you wear your phone in a holster… 😉

  2. To be fair, the panel wasn't set up as though they'd be on video and stuck up on the web. Although I you could argue you should expect that kind of thing now. Not too sure that's ideal, but there you go.

    I would've liked the panel and presenters to be a bit more interesting and opinionated — agree with you on that.

    There are good and bad points to the MoMo format (I don't go often, though).

  3. A review from someone who wasn't there ?
    And he criticizes the speakers for being laid back ?
    Come on….. what a cynic !

  4. I *WAS* there – and found the whole experience enlightening.

    The seating configuratios was not set up for panel working, but if yu listen to what is being said (and what is NOT) then it is possuble to glean a handful of gems.

    David Wood cotinues to score highly in my 'he knows what he is talking about' charts!

  5. That was absolutely deflating….is that the best of the UK? MoMo Sydney may not have the same size or funds but it is always fresh and exciting…if I didn't know it was meant to be about mobile I would have thought it was an accountants AGM.

  6. Momo sydney would be a lot better if the token sales pitch presentations got sacked off… SMS alerts are very 2003.

  7. hi, thanks for the article . i really looking forward with this.like every where there are two side of every thing the first one is positive and the other is negative this is happen with MoMo format.
