12:07:47 [Steph]

12:09:41 [Steph]
raphael: went go through quickly
12:09:47 [Steph]
will add directly in the wiki
12:10:32 [Steph]
Stephanie: criteria different for user and deployment
12:10:36 [Steph]
different categorie
12:10:45 [Steph]
might be good to separate in two different pieces
12:10:51 [Steph]
different type of information
12:11:22 [Steph]
might be good to differentiate
12:12:00 [raphael]
I agree. We may need more categories
12:12:28 [Steph]
stephane: +1 to separate end-user and those who will deploy
12:13:06 [Steph]
raphael: good to capture the difference between plug&play and those who needs integration
12:13:12 [Steph]
good to structure
12:13:44 [Steph]
stephanie: right. interesting to see how oteh rpeople are structuring tools
12:14:06 [Steph]
my next step
12:15:22 [Steph]
steph: capturing use cases is important too
12:16:25 [betty]
12:16:38 [Steph]
steph: also applying the method to a set of tools
12:16:57 [betty]

12:19:03 [Adesina]

12:19:24 [Steph]
Adesina, links to spoken web are on the wiki
12:19:46 [Steph]
shwetank: things are ambiguous
12:20:00 [Steph]
certain tools are not gears to mobile
12:20:06 [Steph]
but might be useful
12:21:04 [stephanierieger]
12:21:09 [Steph]
things like task manager or alike

12:22:26 [Steph]
12:22:29 [raphael]
12:22:29 [Shwetank]

12:23:24 [raphael]
j2me apps and mobile web apps are tools, I guess
12:23:42 [Steph]

12:23:52 [raphael]
pc-based tools to interact with phones via SMS are toosl too
12:23:55 [Steph]

12:35:21 [Steph]
motivation behind the discussion
12:35:25 [Steph]
lots of exchange
12:35:30 [Shwetank]

but thousand of phones
12:38:13 [Shwetank]
12:38:23 [Steph]
steph: understanding what information is important is essetial
12:38:30 [stephanierieger]
12:38:41 [Steph]
gathering lmarket info is harder, particularly as things are getting outdated very quickly
12:39:22 [Steph]
stephanie: doing lots of research on mobile and browser, but don't know yet this info
12:39:31 [Steph]
this is very sensitive with the local context
12:39:52 [Steph]
phones released in different regions have different features
12:40:03 [Steph]
but might be interesting to have more info
12:40:43 [Shwetank]
I could work a little on this .... as having this kind of info, even a small bit, could be usefull

mobilizing people is critical
12:56:46 [Steph]
trying to mobilize people to interact online
12:57:34 [Steph]
more efficient than one time event
12:57:56 [Steph]

identifying people and outreaching to them
13:02:06 [betty]
13:02:22 [betty]
I agree with the face-to-face workshop, because it's strengthen bond among people working in MW4D. But travelling can be costly to gather people from various places, so is it possible to arrange representation? Eg someone represents MW4D projects in Sub Saharan countries, South East Asia, etc.
