Based on the Mobile BOF at the 10th Sakai Conference, we would like to continue the discussion of what functions or capabilities are relevant to the mobile platform as well as what kind of UX we would like to create for mobile users. None of us seemed prepared to offer "the answer" - we all seem to be seeking the answer. There is an opportunity for us to seek the answer together - and that is what this space is all about.
