(Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
Ordinarily, due to the nature of this event, I wouldn’t mention it here – I mean, no point letting folks know about something they won’t be able to attend – but I am delighted to confirm that I will be speaking at the Nokia Asia Pacific CEO Summit 2007, 03-05 October at the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan, Indonesia.
Needless to say, this is a very exciting event and I am honored to have been invited to share my perspective. We’re going to be exploring the unique risks and opportunities presented to mobile providers by the emergence of full-fledged everyware – especially, in line with the event’s theme of “Kampung 2.0,” as that everyware begins to leak out of the metropolis and into the daily life of the village. It’s an utterly fascinating topic, real Jan Chipchase stuff, and I can’t wait to get into the thick of it.
This is also going to be, my goodness gracious, something on the order of 72 hours in transit for a roughly equivalent interval on the ground – my longest flight EVAR, by more than a little. Damn good thing those many hours will be spent in the care of Singapore Airlines, which is reputed to be somewhat capable in this department.
