I'm back

I just got back from attending the Internet Retailer Mobile Commerce Forum 2010 conference in Chicago. Internet retailers from around the country gather to discuss mobile marketing and technology strategy as it relates to the mobile web. Speakers included mobile executives from Walgreens, Fandango, Travelocity, Rhapsody, Crutchfield, Finish Line, and ShopNBC to name the more mainstream presenters. The overall theme was marketing centric and not as technical as I'm used to, but I did take away information pertaining to topics such as apps versus mobile sites and prioritizing mobile site features.

I have been to Chicago before but as with this trip I barely had any time to do much "touristy" stuff at length. I did get to check out Navy Pier, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., and get some sweet Chicago deep dish pizza from Giordanos. I never knew that Bubba Gump was a real place that was actually created for (or after) Forrest Gump was released. The tables actually have license plates on them that say Run Forrest Run or Stop Forrest Stop to indicate if you need something from the server.

Other than that I just took some random urban shots around town as I was walking between places. All of the pictures I took can be seen here.
