Thank you for a great Mobile Monday event!

The final Mobile Monday event of this year was held last Friday - thank you all for attending and for yet another fantastic MoMo event! We had 99 participants and the panels presented at the event were indeed highly interesting.

Music panel had mixed tech and music people, for example Helen Sildna, as the new Citizen of the Year award recipient, and the über-cool and highly successful Finnish music producer Sillamaa (she is able to live off completely from her band - not a usual achievement for a musician as usually musicians have to have a day-job to support them).

It was great to witness how music and tech people see the world so differently - ranging from ownership of ideas to how to execute them. However, we must concede - our core values are the same and creativity definitely is a shared trait.

The community panel featured both start-ups and Tartu City Council. We discussed how not to loose Tartu's identity and how to make Tartu a better place for everyone. The resulting very first Tartu community discussion meet-up was announced and on Tuesday 35 people gathered for a follow-up lunch in Garage48 hub in town to discuss these topics in more detail.

In conclusion - it was a truly a great Mobile Monday plus we had an awesome party later at Genialistide Klubi together with Tartu Music Week.

Let's do something like this again!

PS! Happy festive season to all!
