Brian Kelly talk on Mobile Devices and their use by libraries

Brian Kelly's talk on mobile devices for Bath University library staff was broadcast live. It lasts about 32 minutes and covers the changes in mobile devices since 2004, Brian's experiences for using mobile devices in his work and some of the services he enjoys using. I had not heard of Smartr, but am now trying this out. I think the slides for this talk will be available somewhere. I will link to them when they are released.
One interesting point that came out was Brian's description of people tweeting their comments on attending conferences to a wider (twitter reading) audience: Can this really be seen as engaging in support for the Big Society? I guess I was consciously doing this from Eduserv's 'Work Smarter, not Harder' workshops #oa11.
Update: Slides for this talk.
