Riding the Mobile Wave: The Future of Mobile Computing

Brookings Institution
October 5, 2012
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM EDT

In his new book The Mobile Wave: How Mobile Intelligence Will Change Everything (Vanguard Press, 2012), CEO of MicroStrategy Michael Saylor examines the transformative possibilities of mobile computing on business, society, economies and everyday life. Saylor argues that mobile technologies such as smartphones and tablet computers – “the fifth wave of computer technology” – will be indispensible tools for modern life and completely alter how we live.

On October 5, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host a forum on mobile computing and its monumental impact on our future. Moderated by Vice President Darrell West, Michael Saylor will discuss key highlights from his book and offer insights as to what sort of change we can expect from the macro level down to the most mundane of everyday humans tasks.
