Did not expected that much of value from slides. Finally, a good research and advice on creating a *working* mobile site.

Working from bottom to top is indeed a good approach to create a mobile website, but it too has it's limitations.
If you start at the VERY bottom, all you can fit is like 10 words on screen and no images.
If you end at the VERY top, you end up with desktop pages all looking exactly the same.
Where you draw the line is actually up to your target audience.
That's why so many trendy websites and/or companies target iPhone and Android and Blackberry, these are the people that will BUY their trendy stuff.
Anyway, great slideshow and great advice... to a certain extend.

A beautiful presentation. Very clear progression of the arguments. Was going to send it our Board of Directors. However all but TimBL and NigelS would be slightly lost after about slide 40+. :) Perhaps they'll see some extracts.

Web Foundation is promoting the mobile Web in low and middle-income countries using as simple, affordable phones as possible. We are also exploring voice browsing as a solution for those with a cheap phone that does only voice and text, and for those with low literacy (close to 1 billion adults in the latter category).

Keep up the great work.
