Invite: Today, March 7th - "The Mobile Revolution, Revisited" w/Tim Chambers, Reed Hundt, Suzanne Hall

Almost six years ago NDN released a pathbreaking paper, "Mobile Media in 21st Century Politics," that argued powerful, ubiquitous mobile devices would be the next big wave of global technological change, one which would have a profound effect on politics and civil society around the world.  Six years later, we see this change all around us – Twitter and social networks are essential for breaking news and commentary, we carry our full digital lives with us on our smartphones and iPads, Ghonim and other leaders of the Arab Spring used these tools to usher in a new political age in the Arab World –  this pace of change seems, if anything, to be intensifying not abating.

To look back at this remarkable and historic transformation, we asked the paper's prescient author, Tim Chambers, to do an update on his landmark work, which we will be releasing and discussing today here at NDN.  Joining Tim and I for what will be a spirited discussion is former FCC Chairman Reed Hundt and Suzanne Hall, Senior Advisor for Innovation, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Department of State.

For a compendium of our work in the mobile space since Tim's path-breaking paper see this recent post from Brad Bosserman.  And look for Tim's new paper here on the site after noon.

"The Mobile Revolution, Revisited" will take place tomorrow, March 7th, at NDN/NPI's event space, 729 15th St, NW.  Lunch will be served at noon and the program will begin at 1215pm.   Seating is very limited for this event so please RSVP today.   I hope you will join us - it is going to be a good one.
