James is giving a talk on “The Future of Mobile” as part of the Heroes of the Mobile Fringe series in Leeds next month.
We all have a mobile phone. We’re talking less and messaging more. We’re swiping touchscreens, sharing selfies, voicing our opinions, downloading music, movies and books we’ll never consume. We’re downloading apps by the million, we expect information to be at our fingertips in a nano second. Our devices are now monitoring our heart rates, blood sugar levels and our happiness. Siri and Cortana will chat to us until we can chat no more. But what’s next?
As well as James sharing his vision with you, there’ll be lots of opportunity for you to talk about what most excites you about how we’re using mobile technology. We look forward to meeting you there.

Thanks again to Alan Quayle and all at TADHack in Lisbon for having me along – as Alan points out at the end, we’re looking for help filling up the network with useful services by open sourcing our network infrastructure API.

Helen Keegan kindly asked me to speak about the book at one of her Heroes of the Mobile Fringe events during MWC in Barcelona.
I feel like I’m getting to grips with how to present the whole story in under half-an-hour. Fortunately, the good folks at Tech Talks Central recorded it for you decide for yourselves!
Here’s what I actually said at Brilliant Minds (you might have seen my interview with Patricia Hayter)
Bonus video! Here it is with the Spanish interpreter dubbed in over my talk.
I spoke at TADSummit on “The Services Vision of a Global MVNO / Online Service Provider (OSP)”
I looked at upcoming issues around coverage, not “burning” our customers on cost, continuing to make things simple and apps that work well on mobile, such as health-monitoring. I also gave a few insights into the “weird and wonderful” things that I think are going to start getting a foothold in the next few years.

I wanted to give some insight into some of the human factors in communications that we need to look at when designing new products for a mobile network. I pulled it together around 3 ‘B’s – Body Language; Bandwidth and Banter.
Interesting question at the end from someone in India about opening up our API – I hope we can do this soon.
