|1120||Track 1: Crowdsourcing The Media|
|With the rise of user generated content, mainstream media powerhouses like CNET and Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) are at a stage of experimentation. CNET is increasingly incorporating user contributed content into their site, ranging from increasing the prominence of user contributed tips and comments, to paying bloggers fees for contributions to the CNET blog. SPH, is working on Stomp.com.sg, which is a form of “hyper-local” content, aggregating contribution from the local crowd. Bloggers, of course are the epitome of wisdom of the crowds, and their version of crowdsourcing is trading in the currency of mutual links and comments. We bring together representatives from all sides of the table to discuss the business models and trends arising out of this phenomenon!
|Track 2: The Mobile Web Explosion|
|The long promised mobile web explosion finally looks like it has arrived. More and more functionalities are becoming accessible via the web, while mobile operating systems are evolving towards providing a desktop like experience. In an increasingly complex interweaving of technologies and vendors, we aim to uncover the opportunities in the mobile landscape by providing different lenses to the industry. Get an overview of the regional mobile industry through the eyes of IDC, a look at one of the most popular mobile platform through the eyes of Microsoft Mobile Communications, and a peer into the promise of mobile social networks, through the eyes of Velvet Puffin, a very promising Singaporean mobile startup.
