Mobilize 2012 live coverage

Five years after the launch of the iPhone, it’s clearly a mobile world. The PC industry is shaking in its boots as consumers and businesses adopt a more lightweight style of computing by the millions, and perhaps the most astonishing thing about the mobile revolution is much of the story has yet to be written. While the smartphone may feel like a mature product at this point, software development atop the computing device of the 21st century is still evolving, and fast dependable wireless networks have a long way to go to achieve the ubiquity of wired broadband.

Today and tomorrow at Mobilize, we’ll host frank discussions about these topics and more with some of the people who are making the world more mobile at an increasingly rapid pace. That includes companies like Sprint and T-Mobile, and people like Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley and CEO Spencer Rascoff of Zillow, as well as the startups trying to make a difference through our Launchpad competition. Check out the companies in our Mobile 15 list for a better idea of how we see the world.

Our livestream of the event can be found here, and opening remarks from conference co-hosts Om Malik, Kevin Fitchard, and Kevin Tofel will begin at 820am PT. The festivities resume at 9am PT on Friday.

We will be blogging the onstage sessions throughout both days and will include all the links in this post. Please join the conversation on Twitter (use the #mobilizeconf hashtag and follow @gigaom).
