While Over The Air 09 was in many ways just a bit of fun, events that help sustain the application developer “ecosystem” (Matt Cashmore who organised the event even has that in his job title) are increasingly commercially important.

For Radio 4’s PM programme and Five Live’s Pods and Blogs I produced a short report on Over The Air 09. You can hear the report on Five Live here thanks to the new extended Podcast archive or in the player below (the piece is towards the end of the podcast)
