A confession from a girly geek!!!
I have a confession to make! It's going to be shocking to anyone who knows me well and knows what I think of Microsoft SmartPhones and HTC.... (not usually a fan!) This time however things are a little different. A friend of mine sent me an HTC S620 and I'm actually finding it really great to use. Everything is just really usable, the keyboard is small and easy to use, and the numbers are in an obvious place. The only thing that I can't seem to find (possibly due to never using them much before) ......

Vecosys - For European Start-Ups

Well after all the trouble over TechCrunch UK Sam Sethi and Mike Butcher have moved on and started blogging on Vecosys!  The site focuses on European Start Up's and I think they will be all set for 2007! 

I wish Mike and Sam the very best of luck with their latest venture and I look forward to seeing how the site and the start ups in the uk grow over the years!

TechCrunch UK - On Hold?!
So a friend pointed me to CrunchNotes today and it looks like Sam Sethi has quit TechCrunch UK over a disagreement regarding Le Web 3 comments. Having not been at Le Web I can't say much about the event, but I can say that on this occasion Sam may have needed to be a little more diplomatic, I guess at the end of the day Mike and Sam will go in their own seperate directions. The question now is what will happen to TechCrunchUK in the long term? Will it just disolve and something different take it's ......

Mobile User Experience (MEX) Conference Looking Interesting
I've just read through the MEX Conference Manifesto and I can definately say it's got me all excited and I am hoping that great things will come out of it! It's definately long overdue for the operators, developers, hardware manufacturers and users sat down and talked over the whole mobility thing! I would be delighted to attend the event and I think it will be an informative event full of interesting insights, so long as the right people are in the room to make changes and decisions from it! It's ......

Little bits of Mobility
Well now that the girl geek dinners are finished for the year and DDD4 has been done, I am back looking at what is going on in the mobile space. With Le Web 3 on this week and not being there I thought I would see what is being discussed. The first thing that was brought up today in light of the event was Rudy De Waele's recent article about mobile and the web 2.0 phenomenon. The article makes for an interesting read and touches on a few subjects close to my heart. Mobile 2.0 vs Web 2.0 and the differences ......

So were the female speakers really better than the male ones at DDD4?
I was reading Simon Middlemiss' blog post on his experience of the developer day talks, and it made me smile. In short he found that the three talks by the only three female speakers stood out to him better than the other 2 by the guys. I am just wondering whether the girls are beginning to get better at tech talk or whether they are finally getting the recognition they deserve! Either way it's all good! On my side I am slowly getting to feel more comfortable talking on technical subjects, but I ......

DDD4: A quick overview
Well I was at DDD4 and it was a fun day! There was a little last minute preperation the night before, just polishing off the slides and placing all the links in them. It's just a shame that the Microsoft internet let me down. I ended up talking for an entire hour about web 2.0 technologies for business rather than being able to show the full power of what you can do with them. All the same I think it went well under the circumstances, and I don't think I totally fluffed it. At least the feedback ......
