Check out the interview that Omar did with Kara from All Things Digital. Kara’s a fantastic interviewer, and Omar always has interesting stuff to say. So even if you normally skip video tidbits (like I normally do) this one is still worth it.
The comments about Silicon Valley and Madison Avenue just starting to realize the potential in mobile advertising with the iPhone because it’s the first time they’ve actually seen it themselves, that rings really true. Lots of us thought the iPhone was going to take a long time to make a difference, if it made a difference at all. We were so very wrong about that. Just goes to show, being “in the industry” doesn’t really mean crap in terms of your ability to predict what’s going to happen when there’s a discontinuity. That discontinuity that happened in mobile is now working it’s way through complementary and adjacent markets. Should be an interesting few years coming up.
