| :: GABE SAWHNEY MURMERS MOBILE MEDITATIONS ::
January 27, 2004
Gabe Sawhney is a content creator for mobile technologies.
This is a very important role is mobile is to advance beyond
just a tool. Gabe's message is to make the content have relevance
to what you are doing when you are mobile as opposed to just
making the same old stuff available on mobile. Content in
context might be the phrase.
Mobile people are out in the world - make use of it. Fine,
they may just want to pass the time playing a traditional
game but let's start thinking how we can provide them with
content that helps them engage the world. Gives them stories
of where they are like Gabe's Murmur project: http://www.murmurtoronto.ca.
Any other ideas we will keep to ourselves right now ;-) because
it is certainly in the cards that we too will develop content
for mobile usage. Our program has two pocket PCs on which
we are practicing Flash development and phone development
kits are discussed in our series of Flash
