The Mobile Ecosystem – Legal Frontiers in Digital Media Conference – May 19, 2011

I had a great time last week at the Legal Frontiers in Digital Media conference – an event put on jointly by the Media Law Resource Center and Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society.

As one of the few non-lawyers in the room (most attendees were either in-house counsel at large media and software companies or media attorneys in private practice) I was asked to deliver some opening remarks on the state of the “mobile ecosystem”. I took this as a license to ramble on passionately on a range of topics I care about, mostly pivoting around the growing power of software entrepreneurs to make magic for consumers (and businesses) and the ways in which mobile platforms like iOS and Android are enabling this innovation.

If this sounds like your kind of thing (or you’re just curious what a roomful of lawyers were forced to listen to last Thursday), my slides are embedded below.
