A Mobile Journey: From Helsinki to Philadelphia

A few years ago I took a trip to Helsinki and Tallin to participate in Mobile Monday’s 10th anniversary celebration. Besides seeing a part of the world I’d never seen before, it was an opportunity to meet members of this global organization in person and hear about the amazing work being done in places like Africa to use mobile technology to enrich people’s lives. I also got to see my good friend, Scott Monson, don a pirate cap during a panel session on APIs as our ferry crossed the Baltic from Helsinki to Tallinn.

When I returned, I got involved with my local chapter of Mobile Monday. With more than 2,500 members, Mobile Monday Mid-Atlantic is one of the fastest growing technology networking and educational organizations in the Greater Philadelphia region. Over the past year or so, I was able to observe (and, occasionally, help) the MoMoMa leadership team put on a number of high-attendance, high-quality events.

For as long as I’ve been involved with MoMoMa, Chuck Sacco has — thankfully — been at the helm. Today, he handed me the reins (although I think we may have an actual gavel). For 2013, I’ll serve as the chapter’s president, doing my best to carry on the awesome work Chuck and his executive team have done not only creating the Mobile Monday Mid-Atlantic, but making it flourish as one of the leading tech organizations in the region.

I’m excited about the year we have ahead. If you’re involved in mobile and you haven’t checked us out yet, I encourage you to join us in 2013.
