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 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.


Throw your story on the pile, that’s what the Stadsreporter vzw (the organisation behind HasseltLokaal) and the students of Communication and Multimedia Design had in mind.

Out of this idea, students made in no time the website Nu of Ooit (Now or ever). Two days in a row, the people of Hasselt could visit the students in a bar and tell or type a story. Any story. While typing or telling, words coming from other stories appear on the screen, and they should help the story teller to be inspired, create new story lines,…

I loved the idea and typed in a story. Because of the word ‘a capella choir’ that appeared on the screen, I was inspired to tell the story of me in the school choir. And then of course the memories kept coming. I felt that everybody was quite excited about the project, people love telling stories. If you want to share your story too, just go to the Nu of Ooit website.

This project was a short term experiment. If you have any ideas on how to improve it, or want to let us know how you feel about projects like this, don’t hesitate and let me know 🙂 (via the reactions or via Thanx 🙂
