A Conversation With Alec Sharp

The other day I had a chance to catch up with Alec Sharp as he was visiting Wellington. Alec was here teaching a course on advanced business process modelling for Software Education, and we managed to catch up. I know Alec through twitter and we have had a number of conversations, debates and arguments virtually, so it was great to finally talk to him in person over a beer at the Little Beer Quarter in Wellington. We had a far-ranging discussion of matters as diverse as beer, history, philosophy, process and data modelling, software development and pacific islands.

The Future of Mobile?

Via LinkedIn I recently came across this really good presentation on the future of mobile. In many respects most of the information in here is nothing new, and won’t surprise anyone who has followed developments in the mobile and end user computing markets over the last year. On the other hand I haven’t seen it all put together so clearly before, and so the presentation is well worth taking a look at.
