Meet us at the Skoll Forum! (and lots of other places)

Posted by KatrinVerclas on Mar 25, 2008

MobileActive's staff is doing much traveling these days! Meet me at the Skoll Forum in Oxford, England if you happen to be there where I am part of a workshop on cross-cultural (mobile) communication and am pitching a project to an innovation panel of smart social venture folks. How fun is that!

Next up is the Freedom2Connect conference in Washington, DC, RootsCamp in DC again, a trip to Toronto to present at a venture conference, presentations on the future of mobile media to a group of futurists (what is a futurist?), and mobile innovations to a meet-up of international development professionals, and trips to Jerusalem, London, Brussels, and South Africa to promote our upcoming publication on mobiles in health and relief, and plan MobileActive08, the must-go-to event this fall on 'Unlocking the Potential of Mobile Phones for Social Impact."

I also spoke recently at South by Southwest, the Nonprofit Technology Conference, the Politics Online Conference, We Media, and at the Open Society Institute. And don't forget to see an illustrious mobile panel, including myself, at Women Who Tech on March 31 where there will be a full day of online panels. I serve on the advisory committee of Women Who Tech - and am co-organizing the after-party in New York, so join in for some very mobile dancing.

If you want to meet up, please be in touch at info [at] mobileactive [dot] org! It would be great to connect with you MobileActives out in the world!

Busting Silos

Hi Katrin,
Enjoyed your session at Skoll Forum and appreciated your call to "bust silos" that keep good ideas from spreading. Doing my part to help, I've shared a bit about MobileActive with the education world ( Perhaps some teachers--and their students--will join your efforts.
