Mobile Madness NW: Photos from Our Standing-Room-Only Event
Mobile Madness Northwest was a pretty action-packed affair all the way through—from the scramble to get more chairs for our standing-room-only crowd to the networking and conversations that were still going on as the caterers were packing up and going home. It was our first time bringing this specific event to the Seattle area, and judging by the more than 200 people who attended, it won’t be the last.
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to our stellar lineup of speakers and presenters, who gave us such a range and depth of ideas and knowledge that I’m still chewing over the highlights. For starters, Tom Alberg of Madrona Venture Group hauled out a vintage Motorola “brick” phone, Giordano Contestabile of PopCap Games pondered the lifespan of Wal-Mart shoppers, and Josh Marti of Point Inside offered a revealing demo of Google’s competing indoor mapping service.
Our event sponsors at AT&T, Cooley, and Graham & Dunn made it all possible. Our partners at the WTIA were wonderful collaborators on the program, logistics, and marketing. And our hosts at F5 provided the space to bring us together, along with the network to keep us all connected.
And many thanks, of course, to all who attended. The numbers truly exceeded our expectations—as Bill Bryant of Draper Fisher Jurvetson noted to me on the sidelines, it’s clearly a topic that people are hungry for. As a recap, check out this gallery of fantastic photos by Tyler Sipe, who you saw on-site yesterday capturing the scene. We’ll see you next time.
