Mobile Web 2.0 – Web 2.0 and Its Impact on Mobility

Welcome to the second part of this 3-part article. Much has happened since I wrote the first part: for instance, I am now a member of the Web 2.0 Workgroup and I have also been selected to speak at SYS-CON's SOA Web Services Conference & Expo 2006 in New York City in June.
