Mobile Monday Tonight - Digital Habits of Asian Youth

Another digital community - this time about all things cellular - and fellow fan of alliteration, Mobile Monday, is running an interesting event about, "Young Asians: Understanding the lifestyle, motivations and digital habits of today’s youth". The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. tonight at FINDS, 2/F Lan Kwai Fong Tower, 33 Wyndham St, Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong.

It's run by the Hong Kong Chapter of Mobile Monday, which calls itself "a global community of mobile industry visionaries, developers and influentials..." and was originally set up in Helsinki in 2000.
There are a few more details on tonight's event here.

But basically, Synovate's Director of Media Research, Craig Harvey, will give an entertaining and highly informative speech (I've seen him present!) on what young people are doing on the Net (mobile and fixed), how they access and share content, and how it varies country by country across Asia. And then there will be a panel, moderated by John Tannner, Global Technology Editor for
Telecom Asia.

I knew we were busy bees in Asia, but according to Synovate's survey, young Asians fit 38 hours of activities into one day (but still manage eight hours sleep!). If you can't make it, here are links to extracts of results for Hong Kong and Singapore.
