Treonauts at Web 2.0

After attending the DEMOfall conference in Huntington Beach two weeks ago and CTIA last week, I have now also been kindly invited to attend the Web 2.0 conference (Thank you John B.) taking place in San Francisco from October 5 to 7.

Essentially, for the past three weeks I have been surrounded by the leading technology press journalists in the country, many of the best web and wireless startups as well as established players and naturally the angels and venture capitalists that are funding them.  Throughout this time (for a change) I just could not stop talking about our Treo and the future of the mobile web to anyone within earshot…

However, the most important thing about this long trip has been the opportunity to become ‘evangelical’ about our Treo beyond the core PalmOS community.  The fact is that there is still a wide consumer and business audience – including in the high-tech sector – that remains oblivious to the fantastic opportunities that are opening up in the mobile space – particularly with devices such as our Treo.

I have already seen how the overall awareness of the ‘Mobile Internet’ has changed dramatically since I first started Treonauts nearly 18 months ago but I sense that 2006 will become a pivotal year.  I envisage some of the largest web players such as Google, Yahoo, MSN and others embracing the mobile Internet with a passion and rapidly bringing it to a mass audience.

Evidently, although the Treonauts blog is growing daily and reaching an ever more influential group, there is only so far that our message will spread.  I could therefore not have been more thrilled when, earlier this morning, Morgan Stanley’s star analyst Mary Meeker (I really could have kissed her) presented one of her famous “Internet Trends” reports in which she essentially outlined that we are in the midst of dramatic change, how the mobile Internet is without a doubt one of the single most important developments going forward and how quickly Internet-enabled mobile devices (our Treo below) are in effect becoming small/functional computers.

To emphasize her point – with a dash of humour – Meeker presented a new ‘Hierachy of Needs’ (below) which places the Internet and Mobile Phones at the very top of the pyramid…

I don’t think that I personally needed convincing of this  but I hope that others in the audience will have taken note of how seriously Meeker was taking the potential of the mobile Internet and consider how their business may make a play for it…

Whether out of personal or business curiosity, I strongly suggest that you download and flick through the forty odd slides in her latest Internet Trends report to get a sense of how big the future of our Treo is likely going to be.

Treonauts are building the mobile Internet
