12:24:08 [steph]
12:26:53 [Arun]
I think it would help and act as in index for information seekers.
12:26:56 [steph]
stephane: talking about a table summarizing challenge and technologies
12:28:18 [Arun]
It shuld be part of the doc
12:28:22 [Arun]
I feel
12:30:29 [steph]
mira: sectin 6 ?
12:30:40 [steph]
section: executive summary
12:30:44 [steph]
with the table
12:31:02 [MiraS]
12:31:22 [Lauri]
Executive section can have the table
12:31:25 [betty]
It sounds great.
12:31:48 [steph]
action: steph add an executive summary seciton with a table to summarize
12:33:21 [Arun]
Summary with citation is fine.
12:33:23 [steph]
stephane: extending the tools section of each tech
12:33:32 [steph]
summary+link ok ?
12:33:36 [steph]
12:34:47 [steph]
mira: examples ?
12:35:52 [Arun]
12:36:04 [steph]
mira: we should extend the example to illustrate how they are showing strenght and weaknesses
12:36:28 [steph]
how examples illustrate the points
12:36:46 [Arun]
I agree with Mira that the links may not lead to an illustrative example but wouldn't including examples make this doc bulky ?
12:36:53 [steph]
we should select the best ones ilustrating strenght and weaknesses
12:36:57 [Arun]
I do not know of an alternative though
12:38:37 [Arun]
Sure, we can try that and see how it develops
12:40:19 [steph]
action: mira to develop one example that would illustrate better the strenght anf weaknesses
12:42:27 [steph]
lauri: cellbroadcast used to provide traffic info in the uk
12:42:35 [steph]
very popular
12:42:54 [steph]
lauri: you have to activate it on your handset
12:43:07 [steph]
and when doing that, it impacts severely the battery time
12:43:36 [steph]
stephane: should we mention ?
12:43:54 [steph]
Lauri: yes but not very used, due mostly to battery issue
12:44:41 [steph]
this is due to extra communication with the network
12:45:18 [steph]
12:49:41 [steph]
mira: shortening objectives to two paragraph
12:49:45 [steph]
punchy ones
12:50:22 [steph]
action: mira to rewrite the objectives section
12:53:46 [Yoshiko]
+q, yoshiko
12:53:58 [Arun]
12:54:43 [Lauri]
I agree, add Scope to the Inroduction section
12:54:50 [Arun]
I agree with Yoshiko that having Scope in the begining would be better though we can make it crisper
12:55:16 [Arun]
The scope sets the expectation right
12:55:53 [Yoshiko]
12:56:32 [Yoshiko]
agree, let's see how it will go
12:57:51 [steph]
action: stephane to add in the introduction 2-3 sentences to summarize the scope
12:58:14 [steph]
action: stephane to move the current scope section just before the conclusion
12:58:55 [betty]
I noted that parts of challengs are: innovation, scalability and sustainability, business model, regulation and policy, which are identified as critical success factors for the MW4D ecosystem.
12:59:39 [betty]
It seems that innovation & regulation/policy has been mentioned.

13:03:02 [betty]

Lauri like to point to an important Mobile conference: Nokia World 2009 taking place in Stuttgart Germany September 2-3, 2009. Here is the link:
13:04:09 [betty]
I think 6.2.7 is ok.
13:05:32 [betty]
13:05:39 [steph]
ack yoshiko
13:05:46 [steph]
ack betty
13:06:09 [Yoshiko]
13:07:09 [betty]
As long the policy/regulation discussion complies with the scope, I think it's OK.
13:07:11 [Arun]
Policy regulation is an horizontal issue, so 6.3 seems more appropriate
13:08:02 [steph]
action: yoshiko to write section 6.3 around policy and regulation issues at the infrastructure level
13:09:01 [betty]
I'll propose some sections in 6.2.
13:09:02 [Arun]
13:09:22 [Yoshiko]
