Last week an article in the Wall Street Journal took at look back at this year’s Mobile World Congress, and the abundance of Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies grappling for attention at the show.
Danny Hillis, an inventor, scientist, author and engineer, featured in a TED Talk posted online last week. In his talk he proposed something of a radical idea; a Plan B for the Internet.
Last week rather than follow the crowd to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona I headed out to the other major conference on at the time: RSA Conference in San Francisco. After a few years in the doldrums this year's show was bigger, brighter and had some interesting things to say.
