Mobilism 2011: Ms. Jen’s How to put the Mobile in the Mobile Web

Fri 05.13. 11 – Here are the slides from my Mobilism 2011 presentation this morning, I would also like to highlight the conclusion ideas and some of the links:
Moving Forward:
* Form a grassroots set of folk to work up the hybrid server/client side solution for mobile browser and feature detection as proposed in Brian Rieger’s presentation.
*Work with browser makers for a more complete feature profile and to alert of user preferences on data, media, and current context.
*We are all here now, what are we willing to accomplish & organize?
The Mobile Web is young, let’s keep the lines of communication open and work together.
The Three Presentations after mine that expand on CSS (Media Queries), Client side, Server side and Hybrid approaches:
