How Mobile Technology is Reshaping the Global Landscape Seminar

Participants can follow the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #CTIMobile.
"With smart phones now outnumbering personal computers, there has been a sea change in the way people access and share information. Powerful mobile devices and sophisticated digital applications enable users to build businesses, access financial and health care records, expand educational opportunities, conduct research and complete transactions anytime, anywhere." 

"On December 8, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will launch a new mobile economy project, which will examine and document the impact of the mobile revolution on the economies of developed and developing countries, with a forum exploring how mobile technology can ease the everyday lives of Americans. Darrell West, vice president and director of Governance Studies, will moderate a discussion with Chris Dede of Harvard University and Allan Friedman of the Brookings Institution. Peggy Johnson, executive vice president and president of Global Market Development at Qualcomm, will provide opening remarks."

"After the program, panelists will take questions from the audience."
