Om just stopped by and asked me if I had listened to the conference. Say what? Turns out that Lexy, one of the conference sponsors offers a mobile service that allows you to do just that. They tell me that if you call 415-692-4918, you can hear what’s happening at Mobilize. I don’t know how many folks have called in yet, but the first 200 callers get a Plantronics Voyager 835 just for listening to the Mobilize Conference Quickcast on Lexy. Sweet!
I’ll be talking with the Lexy folks later today and their service sounds pretty interesting. Callers dial-in for streamed audio, similar to podcasts and hear brief news bits and such. For example, I see a four-minute CNN update that would let you hear news while on the go. It doesn’t seem like a service that would replace long-playing podcasts, but might be good for a quick hit of audio info.
