I caught this article by David Wood on his personal blog. It is a transcript of his keynote to Mobile 2.0 this year concerning the role of the mobile operating system, open source and symbian's evolution. It is worth reading. (The wonder of the internet that something like this is so easily shared - you did not have to be in San Francisco to benefit from it).

Mary Meeker Presentation

Here is the latest offering from Mary Meeker of Morgan Stanley. Thought provoking as always.

My main takeaways:

- mobile web really set for mass market adoption (crossing the chasm) from 2010
- this should coincide with recovering advertising spend and technology spend
- Amazon and Google are well placed
- Microsoft and Yahoo! are not
- online ad inventory in over supply; she does not mention mobile but this is the case in mobile too.

Lots to ponder.
