Mobile Bar Code Camp

qrcodeMobileBarCodeCamp is bringing together mobile enthusiasts, explorers, authors, designers, architects, producers and professionals in North America to share the current state and their visions for the future direction of mobile bar codes and other cellphone-readable physical hyperlinks. MobileBarCodeCamp hopes to support the many voices helping to unlock the potential of a “hyperlinked first life”. Topics may include – but are not limited to – mobile code formats, mobile code readers, mobile gaming, bar code art, entrepreneurship, social mobility and presence, near field communication, physical hyperlinking, the importance of open standards, protocols, and platforms, and mobile bar code usage on other continents.

We are extremely interested in having the various Bar Code Platform & Reader companies represented at this event.

MobileBarCodeCamp grows by word of mouth (and word of blog). Tell your friends and people that you think will enjoy sharing a day with likeminded.

Go to the BarCamp page for details and sign up.

For those who asked to be involved from a volunteer and sponsorship perspective – yes – we need your help.

Yahoo Sells Ads On WAP Page from MOCO.NEWS | View Original Post Here

“Mobile content provider Mobile Commerce has secured a deal with search marketing firm Overture to launch a mobile travel deals search service…The WAP service, which will available to all networks, enables travel companies to bid for keywords listed on the Yahoo! WAP site.” It’s the same concept as on the internet, but on mobiles…it’s unclear from the article how the ads will be presented, but the three companies with the current highest bid will have their ads displayed.”

A Thought: Gee. WINKsite generated 110 mobile screen views in 2004 with zero promotion. Now if we increase the size of our audience and integrate these and other ad networks into WINKsite…Hmmm.
