I’m currently at the Rapid Innovation conference in Manchester, talking about the Erewhon project and forging links with others approaching similar problems.
Highlights so far include:
- Jasper Tredgold from the University of Bristol was great to talk to about their upcoming Mobile Campus Assistant
- Peter Pratt from the University of Edinburgh talked about Walking Through Time, which uses Google Maps on a mobile device to display historical maps for the local area
- Simon Harper from the University of Manchester represented Structural which, to quote, ‘is a user agent extension which can make sense of the implicit structural layout of a web page and adapt it into a format suitable for a mobile device’
Other interesting links include:
- Enabling Remote Activities – using Asterisk for VoIP in the field.
- Wookie – The Apache-incubated platform for widgets, implementing the W3C spec.
To round off the post, there’s an interview for the conference available at IE Demonstrator.
More analysis and information to follow!
