The expansion of the web has reached outrageous proportions with
the number of web communities existing and the number of those being created
daily increasing dramatically. To parallel this phenomenon is the trend
nowadays of mobile phone services. One of the most representative is the case
of Greece, where in a period of five years about five million people subscribed
for a telephone number for mobile devices. The communities are not static any
more. The philosophy is: a universal community has to be mobile. This paper
analysed the expansion of the community of SIG-GLUE in order to support
mobile users with any necessary web service.
