Next up for Mobile: Better Identity Services

At least that’s what I said yesterday in the Financieel Dagblad. The business news paper of the Netherlands. Universal identity services on your mobile will determine who you are and help you get down to business. With banks, with stores, socially and between al these silo’s. OpenID for mobile will be an important step. It is key for the path towards Vendor Relationship Management.  Also I say that RFID chips will be a big impact. (Click to get a bigger view).
The did a whole page on mobile. Point of the article was that the device features are pretty much done now as most basics are getting covered: 3G, Camera, Speaker, GPS, etc. What people now want are good services. What application do you need on your phone? Instead op how many mega pixels the camera is. Good point. They used the ING Wegwijzer we did for ING as an example. Here is a scan of the whole page.

Marc Andreessen Video Interview: He knows his Stuff

This is a hour long video where Marc Andreessen gives his take on everything concerning IT, Mobile, cloud computing, social networks and more. He has a great view of what makes the valley and other industries tick and who is doing well and why. He doesn’t seems to up to speed on mobile yet but that will come.

Marc wrote the original code for Mosaic which ended up in Internet Explorer and also started Netscape which now turned into Firefox. He can take credit for both.. In 1999 he started Loudcloud (rebranded into Opsware) which was one of the first cloud computing enterprises. He is also founder of Ning and is on the board of Facebook and ebay among others. And he is an early investor in Twitter and Qik (hmmm maybe he does get Mobile just didnt say in the interview?). He now also started his own VC fund.

Here is the transcript.

Raimo’s talk at the MWG Congress

Last week I gave a presentation at the MWG Congress in The Netherlands. The topic of the event was Experimentation. Personally I don’t believe in experimentation. In this incredible dynamic market, where there is no status quo anymore, one needs to have clear intentions.. During my presentation I used the metaphor of trying to lift one’s leg.. I asked the audience to try to lift their left leg.. Everybody reacted by lifting there leg.. I explained that they raised there leg and did not TRY to raise their leg.

Trying is nothing. You either do or you don’t!

Below you see the presentation and an interview(in dutch) by Ronnie Overgoor touching the topics of the presentation.

RT: “SPRX, Zcapes and the passion for mobile”

A good e-mail interview was published at the Dutchcowboys weblog on Febuary 6 2009 by Henk de Hooge. This is the translation.

SPRX, Zcapes and the passion for mobile

Everybody knows them by now, Maarten Lens-FitzGerald, Raimo van der Klein and Claire Boonstra. They are the founders of MoMo Amsterdam, one of the most successful Mobile Mondays worldwide. And set up their company SPRXmobile in the streamline and recently initiated a new start-up Zcapes.

Enough reasons to ask some questions to one of the most passionate people I know, one of the first bloggers at Dutchcowboys, @dutchcowboy on Twitter and a lot more. But also someone who saw the other side of life when last year was diagnosed with cancer. An e-mail interview with Maarten Lens-FitzGerald.

What made you start MoMo?
