This afternoon, Dec. 8

This just landed in my inbox:

I wanted to let you know that this afternoon, December 8, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will be webcasting a forum exploring how mobile technology can ease the everyday lives of Americans. I will moderate a discussion with Chris Dede of Harvard University and my Brookings colleague Allan Friedman. Peggy Johnson, executive vice president and president of Global Market Development at Qualcomm, will provide opening remarks.

You can view the webcast LIVE at:


The webcast will run from 2:00 - 3:30pm EST today.

You can follow the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #CTIMobile.

I also have published a new paper, "Ten Facts about Mobile Broadband," showing how the mobile economy, which generates $1.3 trillion in annual revenues, is reshaping the global landscape. There are major opportunities to create jobs, and create social and economic connections in both developed and emerging markets.

Thanks again for your support and I hope you enjoy the webcast. The archived video and related material will be available at this link in the days and weeks ahead.

Vice President and Director, Governance Studies
