On U.S. election day last year, November 4th, I co-organized with Katrin Verclas of MobileActive a Barcamp style event we called “Mobile Tech 4 Social Change” focusing on the increasing role mobile technology is having in social activism, grass-roots organization, social development, and in the developing world. It’s possible we started a movement because MobileActive has gone on to run two more camps since then, in New York and Washington DC. Now Mobile Tech 4 Social Change is coming to London. I’ll be hosting this event on May 23rd in at Vodafone’s offices in London. For all the details and to register, go to MobileActive.org’s page on the event. If you’re interesting in helping to build a bridge between the mobile industry and the social activism / social development space then I encourage you to attend!

I’ve been working with the folks at Mobile Monday New York and SVG.org to develop an event on mobile SVG for the end of this month. The theme will be SVG on mobile devices and we’ll be featuring presentations from Qualcomm, Opera, Ikivo Sun, Beatware and others. Antoine Quint of has put together an excellent roster of speakers and Lubna Dajani and the folks at MoMo NYC have lined up a great venue (the Samsung Experience at the Time Warner Center).
