Recap of Mobile Monday in 2011

We took a little breather over the holidays (okay, it’s well past the holidays). It was a really busy 2011, perhaps the busiest year since we started this thing in the pre-iPhone days.

Thanks to all the volunteer organizers who made this past year of Mobile Monday Boston possible! A special shoutout to Itay Sharfi and Maggie Taylor for keeping the wheels on the bus and to Rhonda Billings for organizing our first 5-city tour, Sheena Chandok for our first 7-city tour, Keith Erskine for Mobile Camp, Kevin Wiant for NFC Boston, Sarit for her accounting savvy, Elana for her organization skills, and many many others.

We’re also grateful for the generous sponsors who have allowed us to keep Mobile Monday events free.

We’ll be mixing things up a bit in 2012, not least because I’m adding a new member to my family and will be pretty busy. Here’s to another great year for mobile!
