Just a link, as I’m to lazy to write 😉 http://www.orf.at/080714-27303/27305txt_story.html and http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/0,1518,568274,00.html– I’ll comment no that soon.

ICMB’08 in Barcelona …

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

Wow, looks like Barcelona is the place to be this year. It’s already my 3rd time I “had to” head for BCN. This time I presented a paper on “How to manage an NFC ecosystem” at the International Conference on Mobile Business (ICMB). The two-day event at ESADE was very nice. I met some colleagues from the ICMB last year in Toronto and the MCTA where I gave a talk in January this year.

Besides working very hard, I had a good time going shopping with Andrea. (She is already back from the USA and Mexico.) We also headed for the Champagneria, a tiny pub where only Champagne (at a very cheap price) is served. You defintitly have to go there, if you are in BCN (It’s in Carrer de la Reina Cristina; Yellow Line/Barceloneta).
