I’m very pleased to have been invited to speak at the Irish Web Technology Conference on 28th February in Dublin. My 75 minute session is about SMS, Location Based Services and Social Networking. I’ll be very much doing this as an eager punter and coming from the web side rather than from the mobile industry. I hope that provides some new perspectives in this area. The summary is as follows:

In this session Conor O’Neill will present an overview of some of the most interesting hybrid applications in the consumer space. Starting with the opportunities presented by simple SMS integration to web-sites, he will also look at some of the cutting edge applications in the area of Location Based Services and Social Networking. He intends this to be a highly interactive session and positively encourages audience contribution and feedback.

Hopefully I’ll meet some of you there
