Seth Godin has his wish-list for an iPod app for meetings, but some are taking it beyond the staff meeting type of thing Godin talks about and using the gizmos for annual conventions. Take the American Association of Neurological Surgeons’ 78th Annual Meeting at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, which totally did away with its usual program book by giving (yes, giving!) an iPod touch with a specially made AANS app to each and every attendee (more on what all the association did with its app here). How cool is that?
I'm betting we'll see more of this in the future. Well, maybe not the giveaway part, but now that the iPod or its equivalent is so ubiquitous, I can hear all the developers smacking their lips in anticipation of customizing for each and every group that wants to meet.
