This morning we received a confirmation that Rachel Hinman will provide a contribution to MoMo #7. Rachel Hinman is a mobile design strategist for Adaptive Path with over a decade of design industry experience. She is a strong believer in approaching mobile design and strategy from an empathic, human-centered perspective.
Rachel’s passion for people, design, and the belief that people can use technology to improve their lives has been the driving force of her career for the last ten years. At Adaptive Path, Rachel applies her unique empathic perspective to the design process, enabling innovative solutions that have a positive impact on people’s lives. Currently Rachel blogs her ideas about mobile design by posting sketches, drawings, and prototype ideas for 90 consecutive days (read her blog: 90 Mobiles in 90 Days).
Prior to joining Adaptive Path, Rachel worked within Yahoo!’s mobile group, employing user-centered methods to inform the design and strategy of Yahoo!’s mobile products. Much of her work-to-date has focused on improving the experience of accessing internet content on a mobile device.
Rachel’s innate sensitivity to people and culture have proven powerful skills in the field, enabling her to successfully lead research studies on mobile phone usage in the US, Europe, and Asia. She writes and speaks frequently on the topic of mobile research and design and was recently a featured author in Mobile Persuasion: 20 Perspectives on the Future of Behavioral Change, edited by BJ Fogg and Dean Eckles.

After our hugely successful MoMo #6 , the expectations for MoMo #7 are lofty. But we like to aim high. Join us and find out if we can match MoMo#6 on September 1st, 2008 for Mobile Monday #7: Mobile Value.
What to expect from the event? First of all we are constantly striving to improve our events. As a result, we’ve got a few new tricks up our sleeve for the format and setup of the next MoMo event. We won’t spoil the fun by giving too much away, but this change means that we will only have 300 places available during MoMo #7. During the event we will discuss topics like business models, analytics, and user experience and usability. At this moment we are waiting for the last confirmations. Stay tuned for further updates on the program in the time to come. At this moment we have received confirmations from:
Make sure you have a seat during the next event: RSVP via Meetup. Remember: because of the different setup we’ll have less seats available. Don’t risk being late, RSVP now!
Keep an eye on this blog for updates on the line-up and program. See you September first!
