Very interesting. I ran across it when I noticed at the bottom of the Mobenta (Mobile Entertainment) website that there was a jobs section. This is the first real help-wanted I've seen for mobile technologies. Obviously in my mind, this will be common as dirt in a year or so, but right now a wanted ad like this is still pretty neat. 3D? AI? Wow... And hey, see that they're using Oracle 9i AS? Niiiice! It's basically Orion Server, my fav. Good choice guys!
I wonder what Sony Entertainment's up to? More Mobile Everquest stuff, or something different? Culver City? That's Hollywood... hmm... maybe there's some mobile tie-ins with movies coming up?
Very, very intriguing.
