Remember one of the most wonderful resources for mobile bloggers? yes, it is the Carnival of the Mobilists and this month’s version is live now! It is a best of digest of May’s mobile-related blogs. This month, there are some real goodies! You will find:
- GoSub60′s Sean Thompson musing the question of whether to “go free”;
- James Coops from MobyAffiliates looking at the commercial opportunities of – you may have guessed – mobile affiliate marketing;
- Mobile marketing veteran Russell Buckley looks at mobile couponing as the next billion dollar market (mobile Groupon anyone?);
- Industry thinker and Futuretext founder Ajit Jaokar looking at whether the “two-sided market” model may not actually apply to carriers (and I tend to agree; here’s another blog post… );
- Our very own Peggy Anne Salz of MobileGroove (f/k/a MSearchGroove) focuses on marketing to digital natives;
- The Fonecast’s James Rosewell makes a case for Microsoft to buy Nokia (the rumour of which has just been refuted by Mr Elop himself though);
- Dennis Bournique of the WAP Review looks at where MeeGo is at these days;
- Richard Monson-Haefel looks at “omni-mobility”; and
- finally, my own bit on the evolving role of publishers also found a mention.
Go now and read it over here on Francisco Kattan’s blog and have a great time!
This week’s Carnival of the Mobilists is up and running. It features inter alia:
- a podcast on mobile ticketing;
- a recap of the M-Publishing event organised by the excellent Camerjam guys (which I so sadly missed due to illness);
- an interview with Tomi “Rat Hat” Ahonen on LBS and mobile marketing;
- new research on the growth of mobile data and its impact on the various parts of the value chain;
- Tomi Ahonen’s take on the iPhone 4
- and much, much more.
Oh, and they were also good enough to include my (very) recent post on people-centric design. Thank you.
The carnival is hosted over here and it is – as always really – well worth a read!

The latest iteration of the Carnival of the Mobilists is out over at Andrew Grill’s London Calling blog (and it is the last one for this year, too). It contains interesting posts from MMS initiatives, to the use of SMS in political campaigning, app store comparisons, a look at Samsung’s Bada and much more. It also includes my very own post on the potential of Android.
Head over there, give it a good read and enjoy yourself!
