Mobilized! in NYC, May 5 & 6
"Mobilized! an event that focuses on mobile communications media practices and technologies and the ways they are rapidly changing public space and social interaction." They describe this as an "unconference" in the sense that it's not meant to be a panel of experts lecturing but rather more about participation from the attendees.
Joshua picks up this description:
* A kickoff event with keynote by Siva Vaidhyanathan, author of The Anarchist in the Library.
* A showcase of student, artist, community and new business projects and mobile video and project awards.
* Workshops focused on creating platforms and projects on mobile devices including new tools like Python, Java Micro Edition (J2ME), Microsoft’s .NET Mobile Edition, Flash Lite, Google Maps and Mobile, Mobile Processing, and a look at how they are being used in areas from open source telephony and mobile video blogging, to mobile gaming and locative urbanism with noted designers, programmers and artists.
They have a wiki, where you can add your name to the attendee list.
