Walt Mossberg (web, twitter) and Kara Swisher (web, twitter) from All Things Digital (and organizers of the conference D: All Things Digital) have just announced a new conference dedicated to mobile technology and devices to be held at the Ritz Carlton, San Francisco from December 6-7, 2010: D: Dive Into Mobile Conference.
From the website:
The new conference represents the very first brand extension of our D: All Things Digital conference, now in its ninth year of grilling the big names in tech and media to sold-out analog audiences and scores more on the Web.
And, as always, there will be no PowerPoints, no panels and definitely no pontificating.
What there will be are unrehearsed, unscripted and unexpected interviews with top players, taking a big-picture view of the broader digital landscape.
But, unlike big D, D: Dive Into Mobile is topic-focused, drilling down deeply into the ubiquity of mobile technology and devices, and its implications for brands, organizations and consumers worldwide.
Why should you attend? What can you expect? The best answer comes from the following exchange of tweets between Walt and one of his followers:
