Dan is a brilliant thought-leader and practioner on the subject of new services for the mobile phone, especially in the work he has done on mobile banking for the Rabobank in the Netherlands. In this presentation for XMediaLabs he outlines the impact banking services are having in East Africa. I just love the video they made in Swahili at the end.
Shanghai based XMediaLab worked with NPOX from Netherlands Public Broadcasting to organise a brilliant series of presentations and high-level workshops in November 2009. Some of these presentations have been posted here, together with interviews with most of the mentors.
XMediaLab Amsterdam consisted of two parts: the Pro-Day Conference (17th November) for 150 guests drawn from a cross-section of Dutch and European media creatives and power-brokers; and then the Lab itself (18th November) at which teams drawn from NPO’s 12 thematic channels and related companies attended the Lab in Amsterdam working one-on-one with the International Mentors on several aspects of public media and broadcasting.
