From the IEEE Humanitarian Technology Webinar Series:
Although more than half of the world population has a mobile phone, only a tiny fraction use browser-based mobile internet services. The rest, most of whom are in developing countries, aren't able to benefit from the huge potential of the Web. This presentation explains why and how the problem could be solved with current technology.
This Webinar is presented by Max Froumentin, Program Manager of the World Wide Web Foundation. Max joined the Web Foundation in June 2010. Prior to joining the Foundation, Max worked as Web technology specialist for Browser-maker Opera and video startup Joost. Previously, Max spent 6 years at the World Wide Web Consortium, leading activities such as Voice and Multimodal and managing Working Groups such as MathML, XSL and Device Independence. Before joining W3C, Max worked asa computer science research associate at the University of Bath, UK. He holds a Ph.D in Computer Science from the University of Lille, France.
