Critical Conversation: The Mobile Quandary

This is the first in a series of critical conversations for the Cooperative Extension System.

Join us for a conversation concerning the development of native applications for mobile devices. Developing native applications is expensive, and it is difficult to get people to download apps, and to use them. Is building these apps a wise use of public resources? Should publicly funded entities be abandoning the standards and data formats of the open internet?

In this "critical conversation" we'll examine the issues, discuss mobile trends, and have a roundtable discussion on current state activities, and potential strategies going forward.

This is a Google Hangout event. You will receive an invitation to the join the Hangout at the time of the event. A public YouTube URL will also be available on this page when the session begins.

Please note that the Google+ Event URL for this conversation was changed as of 9/11/12, so if you responded to the original event, please go to the URL below and respond again. Thanks!
