At the YPulse Mashup conference in San Francisco this week, a lunchtime discussion about mobile marketing among representatives from Microsoft, Disney, Viz Media and teen cause group YouthNoise provided an inside glance on the mobile of today (think early AOL) and the mobile of tomorrow (kiss your laptop good-bye).

Comics content is discussed along the way. Hello Zuda? Hello Flex?
