mobile vikings

My former colleagues of City Live have launched Mobile Vikings, a new Belgian mobile operator “with a heart for internet”.

Their fees? phone calls for 0,24euro/minute, 0,10 euro/sms, 1.000 free sms’es and FREE mobile internet (1Gb/month).

Last Friday my colleagues and I were invited to talk about the future of mobile to Communication and Multimedia Desgin students in Hasselt. I promised to put the presentation online to @sigrid. So here it is.

I took care of the first two parts (‘mobile phone love’ and ‘the new mobile internet’). My colleague Koen talked about possible business models and the evolution of mobile technology. Then my other colleague Davy concluded with a workshop, in which he showed how to make a mobile application with the GLOWE specification.Those applications can also be embedded on iGoogle and blogs. The slides of the latter are not online yet.

This presentation was part of a series of experimental media classes. Also the most recent Belgian news project nieuws.be introduced itself a few weeks ago. Since the classes were open, I attended that presentation. News will always remain a passion 🙂 . Purpose of all those classes: show the students a broad spectrum of new media and challenge them to develop a project with the tools introduced to them. Within a few weeks, the students will present their projects. I’m curious!

IT Facts? This very helpful and clear blog collects all kinds of data and analyses of IT research projects. With links to the original research webpages, so that you can always find out more or go deeper into the topic.

I made exhaustive use of the blog the past few days while preparing a presentation about mobile internet. Thanks to IT Facts I have really interesting and above all recent data about the topic.

I will talk about mobile phones in general (I called that part ‘mobile phone love’), and mobile 1.0 versus mobile 2.0. My colleague Koen then takes over and discusses possible business models and the choices our company made regarding mobile internet.

The presentation will be given to a group of cmd-students at the 24th of October from 1:30 pm onwards. Every Friday, they get their ‘experimental media’ class @Kaai 16, Hasselt. Normally there’s a livestream, so you can always follow and/or support me (especially that last one would be really nice 😉 ) . I’m not sure yet where to find the url. And when you don’t live too far from Hasselt, you can always come to Kaai16 since the class is open for everyone.

Let me tell you a little secret. Round the 16th of August, my company City Live will launch a brand new website. With a brand new blog 🙂 .I’m already filling it and wrote my first article.

What about? The mobile internet services Belgian newspapers offer. Take a look.

As a company offering mobile internet solutions, we decided to start a so-called ‘advice blog’, with little focus on the corporation and used as a service to customers and people interested in mobile technology. More information about different types of corporate blogs (in Dutch) via this link.

Hmmm, much too long ago since I’ve written an entry. Which is my fault. Completely. And which makes me realise there’s quite a lot I haven’t been talking about on this blog.

So, back to the past.

1. Yesterday. Girl Geek Dinner number 5 already. I’m a geek not a freak. Out of the 5 Brussels Girl Geek Dinners, I have attended 4 till now. Luckily I missed out one, otherwise I couldn’t defend myself anymore when people call me a freak 😉 . Anyway, it was great to see some ‘usuals’ back like Clo and Smetty ànd to meet new people like Pimpajoentje. Moreover, we got ‘speculoospasta‘ in the goodie bag. I’m staring at it right now with hungry eyes 😉 but I am patiently waiting for the right moment to try it out.

2. The 6th and 7th of May. A friend of mine organised quite an interesting event for people who are involved in arts and culture. During this so called ‘hybrid spaces’ event, the participants were challenged to think, talk and work around four thematic issues:

  • local/global,
  • private/public,
  • narrative/creative
  • visible/invisible.

Those ‘borders’ can be looked at in many ways since the coming of ‘new media’. More information on the Spacecowboys website.

3. Way back in time, at the 29th of March. Barcamp Ghent and Girl Geek Dinner number 4. Apart from meeting lots of interesting people in Ghent, I was very proud that I had been able to pursuade some colleagues at City Live to join me there. And very relieved that they enjoyed the event and came back with new contacts and great ideas as well 🙂 . Furthermore, I discovered the wii. Which wasn’t only very funny, but which brought me into contact with two great people: Ywein and Filip. Ywein was my opponent, Filip the one taking pictures while we made a fool of ourselves 🙂 .

After the Barcamp in Ghent, the fourth Girl Geek Dinner took place at the offices of Netlash. Not only again a nice place to meet interesting people (at or in between the cocktails and French fries I met Britt and also Bart), but also the place at which I won…YES, I won…a microsoft webcam. Thank you!
