This past January, PSFK held a Good Ideas Salon in London bringing together the most forward-thinking tastemakers, innovators, and experts from around the world to discuss key areas steering innovation and opportunity. For our mobile section, PSFK‘s Piers Fawkes moderated a panel that included Dan Hon (Six To Start), Mike Butcher (TechCrunch UK), Matt Jones (Dopplr) and Jonathan MacDonald (Ogilvy) on how the everpresense of mobile is unveiling new, exciting ways for us to explore, work, and play.

The panel laid the groundwork by emphasizing that mobile development is about people, not technology, and the intersection of these two will be increasingly-defined by applications and tools that are uniquely combined by people to suit their individual needs and desires – not provided from a single, global source.

The other key take away from this panel was the distinction between place and location. Brought up by Dopplr’s Matt Jones, he explains that computers and phones are great at ‘location,’ but we describe where we are as ‘place’ – where culture meets location.

On April 2, 2009, PSFK will be hosting our 8th PSFK Conference in NYC. For tickets or more information, please visit www.psfkconferencenyc.com
