Opening Keynote

Dan Lyons

The So-Mo Revolution

Speaker: Dan Lyons
Tech Columnist at Newsweek

The two hottest trends in technology, social networking and mobile computing, are merging to create a mega-wave that Newsweek Technology Editor Dan Lyons calls “the so-mo revolution.” Dan’s job at Newsweek gives him a unique front-row seat for the latest up-to-the minute happenings in social media and mobile computing. In a lively presentation, he shows how you can navigate this complex, ever-changing new world. First, where should you place your bets? Which platforms matter, and which ones are fading away or will never get traction? And what about the device side – which mobile platforms are going to survive? Will Android overtake Apple? This opening keynote address is a must-attend for anyone who wants to harness the power of the so-mo revolution.
