Two of the Princetonians highlighted in PAW’s Nov. 4 story about alumni and students who have developed iPhone applications will participate in a Nov. 12 discussion of “iPhone apps: The new high-tech gold rush?” in the Friend Center Auditorium at 5:30 p.m.

David Lieb ’03 of Bump Technologies, the startup that created the popular Bump app for sharing contact information, and Matthew Connor ’11, an undergraduate who has developed an app that helps diabetics manage their health, will join two other panelists — Sharon Fordham, chairwoman of Skyworks, which develops games for the iPhone, and Ken Kay, CEO of ici, a publishing, social-networking, and blogging platform for mobile devices.

The event is sponsored by the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education, Jumpstart New Jersey Angel Network, and Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP.
