Mobile advertising is resurgent among Boston-area tech startups. Games are driving mobile as much as mobile is driving games. Healthcare is a fertile ground for mobile innovators who dare to enter. And a little snow and sleet won’t stop Boston’s innovation community from turning out at one of our biggest events of the year.
Those are just some of the takeaways from this week’s Mobile Madness 2013 conference. In looking ahead to “the next revolution,” our esteemed speakers highlighted trends ranging from the exploding mobile-app economy and new forms of advertising to augmented reality, connected devices, and M2M (machine to machine) technologies.
Huge thanks to our event host, Microsoft BizSpark, for making its wonderful space available at NERD.
