Had the opportunity to speak at the Mobile Media Summit at Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona. It was a fun panel with some good questions from the audience. I wrote up a more glib review of it for JWT on our blog, below.

Earlier this week I was asked to speak on a Mobile Media Summit panel at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The subject was Did Mobile Video Kill the TV Star?
No question the Buggles had it right: Video Killed the Radio Star.
