361 Degrees podcast – Episode 4: Getting in touch with NFC


In Episode 4 we recap MIR’s recent Unlimited Drinks event and then set about discussing the hot-topic of the moment… NFC (Near Field Communication). With help from special guest Raymond Lee an expert from Consult Hyperion we discuss:

  • What is NFC?
  • How and where could it be deployed?
  • Who the key players are and some potential conflict
  • Ben‘s frustration that the focus on ‘mobile wallets’ ignores better uses
  • Ewan‘s view that Apple could be the company to move NFC payments into the mainstream
  • Rafe‘s concern that the global standards needed will be tripped up by the number of organisations involved

Episode 4 is also available on Soundcloud.

There are lots of ways to follow the podcast or you can subscribe using iTunes and other popular services.
