November 09 MoMo - Event material

The November 9th MoMo Mumbai event was a smash!

JariJari Tammisto, CEO of Mobile Monday, talked about his experience of running MoMo internationally and answered questions from participants on global mobile scenario. Rajesh Jain, MD of Netcore Solutions and Jari discussed the Indian and international mobile market in a one-to-one talkathon.

Many of us held this belief that Mobile Mondays happen on Mondays because Monday is the only day of week which begins with M and rhymes with Mobile. But the big secret is out now. Jari’s reasoning behind “Mobile Mondays” reminded me of another Finnish great Linus Torvald’s Linux/Open Source philosophy - Free as in “Free Beer” and not “Free Speech” :)

  • Jari’s presentation is uploaded here.
  • Jari was also kind enough to share the “United Nations - Information Economy Report 2009“.
