Center for the Handheld Web at RIT?

Center for the Handheld Web at RIT: Who Knew?Most surprising presentation (at least for me) at the Forum Oxford event was from Jeff Sonstein at Rochester Institute of Technology’s “Center for the Handheld Web.” Center for the Handheld Web? I couldn’t believe my eyes — these guys have been dealing with all the issues that we’ve been working through in the Mobile Web Best Practices group and it seems like they’ve come to many of the sameĀ  conclusions. They’ve gone one step further though and worked through some recommendations regarding the use of scripting in the mobile context (read: “Mobile Ajax”). Very cool stuff.

Well done Ajit and Tomi for putting together a great event!

  1. Thanks for the kind words… I have posted
    copies of the long and short versions of the
    slide-set at:

    slide-set, and goingDual_short.* is the short
    version (which I presented at the conference).

  2., more than a Mobile Bookmark engine


    WAP URL :

    The mobile web can go places where the web cannot…for example …toilets ;-), serious…

    No more wasting time in typing long names of websites to chrck ur mail on ur phone…or getting URL’s through SMS messages. is a new way to look at the world wide web from a mobile.

    Here’s a mobile web 2.0 startup site which intends to bring the PRETTY BAD internet out there to mobiles in a hasslefree manner and it also serves as a personal bookmark engine. is a bookmarks engine for mobiles.

    It works with any web URL, WAP site and .mobi site.

    It uses the best mobile transcoders(google,iyhy,Skweezer,Phonifier) available in the market and tap-reduce mechanisms to achieve this. is also a bookmark engine that will store all your bookmarks for use on any mobile browser or device.

    And thats the reason why its mobile site is named standing for Web and Mobile 2.0.

    And best of all, as most other good web and mobile 2.0 companies , it is FREE.
