Packing for Amsterdam - attending Möbius 2007

You might have heard about it already but in case you haven't: The annual Möbius conference is just around the corner, this year happening in Amsterdam, Netherlands and I'm happy I got an invitation for this year's Möbius conference. So while I will leave tomorrow morning, it's time now to leave the PC and pack my bag since I will take a couple of Windows Mobile smartphones with me, as well as my Apple AirPort Express, my Nikon D80 and some other stuff. In the past, without all the gadgets, traveling was easier. All you need was you Passport, your Credit Card and your toothbrush. Now we are travelling with a whole bag of gadgets.

Anyway, if you haven't heard about Möbius, it's  an invitation-only community (with roughly 100+ members now) of the world's most influential technology pundits and online writers. Hosted by Microsoft, the yearly once or twice happening Möbius conference brings together around 25 Möbians of this group of 100+ which normally interact behind the scenes with companies big and small to shape the direction of devices, services, pricing, design and the culture of consumer technology.
As with every Möbius event, Microsoft will host a variety of speakers, from across the industry, who will talk about general mobility issues, industrial design, new applications and of course provide sneak peeks into future products. However the best part of Möbius is having a very open and honest dialogue and even healthy debate  about the industry, technologies and initiatives that are shaping the future of mobility.

Initially initiated by Microsoft, Möbius became a self-runner over the years and it's not about the annual conference only but there is a strong interaction and friendship between Möbians during the rest of the year (for instance we meet once a year at the 3GSM World Congress, including discussions and opinion-sharing and I'm sure, this year we will also talk about the iPhone, Android but also about Windows Mobile, devices in general (we always like to compare Windows Mobile with Symbian since in some areas Symbian is still ahead of Windows Mobile) and services in general.

While I already know who's coming this year (and I'm really looking forward to meet old fellow Möbians and make new friendships), I'm not going to unveil the list here since it's up to everybody to talk about it.

So talk to you soon and keep an eye on the::unwired - I will try to keep you updated as good as possible.

Cheers ~ Arne
