Thought-provoking event with several fundamental insights:
- Future opportunities for simplification as product strategy (based on the success of Twitter and earlier iPod – both simplifications of existing technologies)
- Mobile should be the “primary interface” for web development (not just “mobile compatible”) – mobile is the channel through which more customers more likely to experience web in the future.
- Separation of streams: Facebook (a couple of dozens of close friends), Twitter (business communication in the area of expertise), LinkedIn (wider network of business associates), etc
After the event I downloaded Gowalla (in addition to the ubiquitous foursquare).
