Last night I attended a meeting of the Web Innovators Group here in Cambridge. Among the new businesses that caught my eye was Mofuse.com a mobile site creation company.
As I have been learning, the next phase of the Web is emerging on hand held devices. There may be 600-700 million PCs in the world, but there are already over 2 billion cell phones and the forecast is for 3 billion soon. Most of this growth will occur in the developing world. With the next generation of devices looking more like mobile computers, this means that most human beings will, in one generation, go from no telephone service to full-blown access to everything on the Web. I will restrain myself from further imaginings about the impac this will have on how and what we do.
Looking shorter term, I clicked over to the Mofuse website and hooked up my Management Notes blog to their mobile site creator. If you have a suitable mobile device you can now read this blog on the go at: http://businesscoach.mofuse.mobi/
I do not have a suitable mobile device so I am waiting for feedback from this distant universe.
