Electioneering in the Mobile Age

This election year, for the first time we saw campaigns big and small, democratic and republican, as well as non-partisan reaching out to voters through their mobile phones.

Join us to find out what mobile tactics worked, and how you might take advantage of this innovative technology for your own future campaigns or business.

The elections this year demonstrated the strongest cases in the U.S. for mobile fundraising, communications and organizing which have implications beyond political campaign management in consumer campaigns.

It is a central gathering point for businesses, organizations, political operatives, application developers, academia and the media. Mobile Mondays main activities include face-to-face gatherings each month, and virtual networking via the worldwide community of Mobile Monday groups.

Philosophy

Our philosophy includes openness, equality, inclusion and the assumption that ideas should be tested through vigorous debate, critical examination and peer review. We also believe that initiative and risk-taking should be honored, and that the mobile industry is playing a key role in shaping society. There is a direct connection between mobile interconnectedness and political and social freedom, the strengthening of democracy, the rational management of our collective future and the triumph of reason and enlightenment.

Most people on planet Earth have never touched a computer; many never will. But it is conceivable that, one day, almost everyone will have a mobile phone that allows them to communicate with fellow citizens, access networks and databases to take control of their lives, their livelihood and their future.

As "mobile folks," we invite you to examine how the mobile industry can contribute to making our neighborhoods, our cities and our societies better.
We hope MoMo DC grows into a tool to help the industry achieve benefits for everyone, spread knowledge & encourage people with good ideas to take action.
