HP Discover is hitting up Vegas again this year, and our mobile presence is going to be bigger than ever. I’ve been doing this mobile thing for a few years now and I have to say this is the most exciting line-up I’ve seen yet! Whether you are coming to see the latest hardware we have to offer or finding insights to the latest in software and services, you won’t be disappointed when it comes to our mobile offerings.

I learned a lot of things at Mobile World Congress this year from the various vendors and exhibits. The quality of the information I gathered was top notch, but the most interesting discussions came outside the venue. Whether we were on a break or out to dinner, we were discussing the future of mobile.

Wow, what a week. I just returned from Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona and all I can say is it was overwhelming! The changes that are coming over the course of the next year are really going to redefine how we look at mobility and devices overall. It was a week filled with great information, great people and great products starting with a half-day theater session with HP.

If you are a parent today, you live your life in fear. Everything needs to be sanitized with 99.7 percent anti-bacterial soap to protect your kids from the germs that surround us. The corporate world isn’t much different in their thinking when it comes to Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policies. We have security and IT executives who are scared to death that viruses from the outside are going to walk in on their employee’s smartphones and attack their networks.
I recently wrote a post on informationweek.com that talks about what precautions you need to go to in protecting your networks from BYOD. I encourage you to read it here.

It seems like just yesterday I was on a plane back from Las Vegas after our last HP Discover, and I can’t believe Barcelona is now just around the corner! What I think is even more exciting is that in just that short time I’ve seen the mobile landscape change again. With the launch of the HP Chromebook, the Nexus5, the iPhone 5 (s and c). Too many new changes to count, oh and don’t get me started on the new companies, the mergers, the latest technologies, and it’s only been 5 months.
All this is just making the idea of heading out to Barcelona and meeting customers and industry peers to talk about what HP is doing in the mobile space that much more exciting. For the uninitiated, HP Discover is our big event we hold twice a year to showcase what we, and our partners, are doing. Attendees get to experience the latest hardware, software and services in a fantastic venue on the Mediterranean. ( I have to admit, I’m going to be doing my best to sneak out and hit the beach. But, I think I’m going to be pretty booked up.)
Currently I have four different sessions/panels that I’m going to be a part of. I would love you to come join me at one or all of them as we discuss everything there is to discuss about mobility in the enterprise. Discussions will range from our own journey in HP IT to the entire enterprise mobility landscape. There’s a little something for everyone.
If you’re attending, please be sure to sign up for one of my sessions. I’m always happy to meet with people that are working in the mobile space and answer questions, but also learn what you are up to. If you haven’t signed up for Discover,I encourage you to register here. I promise it’s an awesome conference that you won’t want to miss.
The following is a list of the sessions I’ll be a part of:
|BB1682||Mobilizing HP: how to embrace BYOD|
|BB1683||Mobilizing your enterprise: an expert panel|
|BB2085||Lessons from HP IT and HP experts. Empowering your mobile workforce – BYOD and productivity|
|TB1895||Mobilizing the HP enterprise – The IT Journey|
Hope to see you all in Barcelona!

I’ve been working in the Bay Area for the best part of the last almost 20 years and I’ve seen a lot of things come and go. I remember the days when Craigslist was simply run by Craig Newmark out of his loft in the city and he’d throw parties to bring together everyone working on the web. I also remember when we discussed merging our Web Development firm with a company that did WAP development back in 1999. A lot has changed since those lofty days of the Internet Boom and we experienced quite a bust after that period. But as everyone knows, the Silicon Valley is based on a bust and boom, bust and boom economy. This is not because we create bubbles, but because we create. And when we create the world takes notice.

I was looking for writing inspiration recently and came across “A Pep Talk” by Kid President. Don’t ask me to explain. You’ll have to watch the video, like the 28-million-plus other viewers. Kid hits upon the famous Robert Frost poem, “The Road Not Taken” and he reports that the road less traveled “hurts, man.” He would much rather take what he calls “the road to awesome.”

“They said I could only….”
Those are five words that don’t tell us anything, but can say so much. They say that the speaker wasn’t able to quickly articulate what he wanted the audience to hear; they say his thought was lost before it even started. They also say this could be a Webby Award acceptance speech. In fact, it was a Webby Award acceptance speech from The Onion in the humor category. But it got me thinking how business people need to change how they go about developing requirements for apps in the mobile world.

Real men don’t eat quiche. Don’t they? It took the quiche industry years to recover from those 5 little words. Our society constantly pits people/places/things against each other and HTML5 v Native is no different. Can’t we all just get along and realize that there is a time and place for everything. I for one, truly enjoy a nice quiche Lorraine after my Saturday morning hike right before I go for a nice glass of Pinot Noir (notice it’s Pinot Noir, not Grigio, as real men cannot eat quiche and drink Pinot Grigio in the same day, that’s just a known fact). It’s time people realize that you don’t have to choose one camp over the other, there is a time and a place for HTML5 and a time and place for Native development, don’t let anyone tell you differently.

I was just listening to John Stewart interview NY Times writer Michael Moss about his new book Salt Sugar fat and he said something that struck a chord with me. He was talking about the science of creating food and something called the “Bliss factor.” That perfect balance that will ensure that the products are a smash hit with consumers. That’s where I want to go with BYOD policy, I’ve been searching for that perfect mix of hardware, software and education that will protect my IP yet give my consumers that rush they get when eating a Twinkie. OK, I know it’s a bit of flight-o-fancy to think that a BYOD policy can compare to a Twinkie (they are coming back!), but why not, why not venture out on that quest, at least for a little bit.
