After a ton of work, the new Mobile Monday Tokyo site is live! The website will serve as the primary platform for MoMo Tokyo events, news, networking, community building and anything else that we (you) can think of. See you at MoMo!
Mobile Monday is about networking and the aim of this site is to provide a virtual forum where MoMo Tokyo participants can network, communicate, share and inspire each other. It is also the central information point for all MoMo Tokyo f2f activities, including our headline networking events and, in the future, seminars, briefings and other gatherings aimed at supporting people in the mobile industry.
Our philosophy includes openness, equality, inclusion and the assumption that ideas should be tested through vigorous debate, critical examination and peer review. We also believe that initiative and risk-taking should be honoured, and that the mobile industry is playing a key role in shaping society. There is a direct connection between mobile interconnectedness and political and social freedom, the strengthening of democracy, the rational management of our collective future and the triumph of reason and enlightenment.
Most people on planet Earth have never touched a computer — and they never will. But it is conceivable that, one day, almost anyone can have a mobile phone that allows them to communicate with fellow citizens, access networks and databases and take control of their lives, their livelihood and their future.
As “mobile folks,” we invite everyone to examine how the mobile industry can contribute to making our neighbourhoods, our cities and our societies better. We hope that MoMo Tokyo grows into a tool to help the industry achieve benefits for everyone, spread knowledge and encourage people with good ideas to take action.
