Talking #Utalks: Why Come to a Two-Day Mobile Summit?

One of my favorite aspects of UNTETHER.talks was recognizing that the people in the audience were as smart as the people on the stage. We were lucky to snag a few of these smart people during our packed reception and ask them a few questions on the state of mobile and the #Utalks experience.

As you can probably gather from the agenda, #Utalks was a big tent event featuring a legion of speakers covering myriad topics related to mobile. So we wanted to get a clear idea of the particular reasons why attendees decided to sign up for a two-day roller coaster ride hosted by two men way beyond their depth. And yes, we did ask one of our sponsors why they patroned the event, but only because we were wondering ourselves.
