Where in the world was dotMobi this week?
Well, a pack of us were in Cairo for the most recent ICANN meetings (and I'm sure you'll here more about that soon), but one of us — James Pearce, our VP of Technology — was in Stockholm, Sweden.
He was there to discuss the ways we're looking at using Sweden as a test bed for future innovations on both the domain and the technology front, since Sweden has such a high, tech-savvy population.
He also spoke at The Mobile Focus conference in Kista on November 6 in connection with this year’s Mobile Gala, a mobile awards program. dotMobi was the main partner for this year’s Mobile Focus, whose theme was "Mobile as a Media Channel." Mobile Focus and the Mobile Gala are the biggest annual
event in mobility in the Nordic region.
Our friends in Sweden also issued the following press release on our behalf. Since we don't generally make our "in-country" releases globally available, I thought you might enjoy seeing one. For dotMobi followers, this information will be high level; but for the general Swedish public, a bit of basics never hurts.
(And a side note, one of my favorite Swedish sites is weiwei.mobi for Chinese singer Wei Wei. Although created by Swedish team at Adimo and featuring Sweden-based singer Wei Wei, the site is designed for her Chinese fans, so it's pretty much unknown in Sweden.)
