Women in Technology link to London Girl Geek Dinner!
Well this just gets better and better. Women in Technology have put a link to the London Girl Geek Dinner on their site. What more could we ask for! We now have 23 people signed up for the event and there are still 10 days to go until the event. The question here is are we going to get any of the big banks, consultancy firms and computer companies sending their women to the event. So far I have noticed a severe lack on Microsoft women signed up, and for that matter Accenture female consultants. Just ......

Mobile TV to hit Oxford!
I just got an e-mail about the following article... Mobile TV trial to launch in UK It is an interesting trial... The question I have is why would people want tv on their mobiles... It is not as though you can watch it on a train on your way home from work... There's never any reception. You can't watch it in the car for the same reason... and you can't watch it whilst wondering around you end up bumping into people! So what is the point? I think we need to look into UWB and the effects of this on ......

Are Orange Afraid of VoIP?
I found the following very interesting article in the latest Mobile Communications International magazine. I have to say it sounds to me as though Orange aren't all geared up to dealing with VoIP as a service... I mean, if they don't have a VoIP offering and other companies are offering it where does that leave them other than with a declining market.... a worrying day for Orange ......

Wiki Wednesday - Round up
I went to the Wiki Wednesday meeting last night and I have to say I was very impressed. The views from the 22nd floor of Dresdner were amazing. I would love to have those views every day when I was at the office. Then again I want everything beautiful. I met a lot of very interesting people and some of the conversations were very interesting. Adriana was telling me all about her work and how she integrates Wiki's into organisations working practice. It is a great idea and there is a lot of potential ......
