(NB these are just brainstorming ideas!!!!!! No commitment implied :-) ! )

  1. the "original 50" are all co-organizers and responsible for organizing in their home town
  2. the original 50 must present a mobile 10 minute or less "1 year later" status/way forward/whatever and must recruit at least 1 participant in their home town to present as well!
  3. done via mobile video streaming e.g.ustream, qik, kyte, mogulus, etc. for 2 days world wide & archived
  4. the 2008 workshop presenters will reprise their workshops in a 2009 stylee
  5. Outcomes:
    1. a user vision of the way forward for nokia and the mobile industry 
    2. "raise a barn " i.e. create a mobile app / site / something that we all agree on beforehand for a cause that we all believe in 
  6. Things I can help with: Drupal, Bug Labs Bug, S60 Python, "dis-coordination" :-), blogging, wiki gardening
  7. Things I am not so good at: getting sponsors (do we need any?), politics, web design
  8. Looking forward to the cool ideas from others!

To be continuously revised...


  • We should ensure everyone who was in Helsinki is in here - I see one right off and will invite them
  • Let's use the tag mobileopenlab09
  • Tie it into a local event, or create a local event - similar to a BarCamp?
  • Bring someone into the mix who was not at OpenLab - e.g. I have a friend not in Chicago I would like to include

  • I have a pretty good idea of another participant who would be perfect for this.
  • I think that we should all agree on a single mobile streaming service
  • If we need sponsors, I have a way of asking for money ;)

  • "getting to know you" type forums prior to the Open Lab.  Much time was spent figuring out who was who and trying to figure out why we were all there.  This way we would be able to jump right in.

  • As an outcome, maybe we could prepare a paper/book/manifesto of the mobile future?
  • Linkin with local events is a good idea

1. We should consider time zones.
2. Text is as important as video. Can we have a pvt/forum/jaiku ( jaiku is open source now)??
