Thank you MLOVE Team for the one of the most awesome events I ever attended – MLOVE ConFestival rocked. It was worth every single cent – can’t wait to see your next ideas. Hard to imagine it can get much better. Keep me posted!
For those that were not there, check the teaser of the nine minutes 3D projection/ animation from PROJEKTIL on the backside of the MLOVE castle in Beesenstedt and keep those guys in business by thinking about what you/ your employer, brand could do with this crazy way of making buildings speak/ move/ shake – you dream it, they do it.
I consider this way of exploring huge amount of data one of the best to learn new things from existing data sets/ collections (especially with a large touchscreen interface like surface or any other projector based multitouch solution this should be real fun).
Have a look and if you should come across any demo with a touchscreen interface i would be thankful if you let me know via twitter.com/cwil ( @cwil ) – Thank you!
In case you have a lot of time…here is Morgan Stanley’s full report on the Mobile Internet 2009 published 15 Dec 2009:
Key takeaways and links to summaries of the report can be found here: http://www.morganstanley.com/institutional/techresearch/mobile_internet_report122009.html
Team Morgan Stanley’s key takeaways are:
Material wealth creation / destruction should surpass earlier computing cycles. The mobile Internet cycle, the 5th cycle in 50 years, is just starting. Winners in each cycle often create more market capitalization than in the last. New winners emerge, some incumbents survive – or thrive – while many past winners falter.
The mobile Internet is ramping faster than desktop Internet did, and we believe more users may connect to the Internet via mobile devices than desktop PCs within 5 years.
Five IP-based products / services are growing / converging and providing the underpinnings for dramatic growth in mobile Internet usage – 3G adoption + social networking + video + VoIP + impressive mobile devices.
Apple + Facebook platforms serving to raise the bar for how users connect / communicate – their respective ramps in user and developer engagement may be unprecedented.
Decade-plus Internet usage / monetization ramps for mobile Internet in Japan plus desktop Internet in developed markets provide roadmaps for global ramp and monetization.
Massive mobile data growth is driving transitions for carriers and equipment providers.
Emerging markets have material potential for mobile Internet user growth. Low penetration of fixed-line telephone and already vibrant mobile value-added services mean that for many EM users and SMEs, the Internet will be mobile.

Social Media stats, Mobile Internet predictions and much more about the current state of advertising, media and technology from Morgan Stanley’s Mary Meeker. Brilliant! Maybe most useful presentation in 2009.
