It’s impossible to catch a full day of Mobile Convention London in just a few quotes from the speakers who attended MCL. But here’s a recap of some of them that stood out and we don’t want you to miss.
- “If you focus on people’s attention, anything will sell.”
- “Germans give up privacy for shopping experience for some cents. Privacy is already a luxury item.”
- “Only rich people today ride horses. It’s the same with cars: In the future cars will be driven by rich people. Other people just drive computers.”
Jeremy Abbett, Google
Kimo Quaintance, cyberlecturer
- “Focus on technology. The focus should be on what we do. Not what we do it with.”
- “Have a pipeline of new tech and keep it running, enable people to constantly experiment, do not do it arbitrary.”
- “90% of anything is crap. Not controversial. Majority sinks to the bottom. If you do it, do it well.”
- “Failing in startups is not really failing. You’ve probably learned something from it.”
Andy Hood, AKQA
- “What do Uber facebook, Alibaba and Airbnb have in common? Zero. Zero real estate, zero taxi’s, zero stock and zero content creators. But they’re all worth billions.”
David Skerrett, Nimbletank
- “Are people going to be dumber in a 100 years time? Think of technology as assistive and enabling, not replacing.”
- “Observe how people use our products. That will make some awesome shit.”
- “Stop competing and demanding: 60% of the apps are used only once after which they’re deleted.”
Louise Heinrich, SuperHuman
- “Starbucks gives me value through notifications on my screen, their competitors don’t. The quality of Starbucks is probably not that good, but their loyalty is better.”
- “We pushed people to pay with Hailo while they were in a Hailo cab. That was too aggressive. People thought it was awkward.”
- “Understanding local culture, langue and sentiment helps driving engagement.”
Mike Masuku, Hailo.
