Mobile%20Pic %20SEAsia%2010This will be the final edition of the Weekly Web Watch for the foreseeable future. 

Through the Weekly Web Watch we have built up a database of over a thousand articles/videos/ slidesets/reports/guides/etc. and it's now time that we do the work of processing the information contained in those and creating what will hopefully be brief, helpful and actionable resources that will assist you in getting mobile ministry implemented easily (at least relatively so) and effectively (see the "How-To's" we've put out so far). 

We also will work to make available a searchable database of these 1000+ resources with each resource tagged against 50 potential areas of interest (i.e. tagged for social media, mobile web, Africa, mLearning, etc.). 

Enjoy this final Weekly Web Watch and come on back to find what comes next!
