In contrast to Cannes there are so many things to see in Barcelona in addition to the technology at the event which really is a huge plus. So we took the liberty for some sightseeing and relaxation and went to Gaudi´s Sagrada Familia cathedral (see pictures one and two).
In the evening another highlight of the day was the gathering of the Mobilist in the Hotel Ritz, organized by Rudy DeWaele. "It´s time to arrive before you are already there" I can read on the Treo advertisment just outside. That quite fits to that gathering. I met quite a number of people whom I only met via their blogs before and communication was instant. Thanks so much Rudy, I had many good conversations and surely met some people that I will keep in touch with. On picture three that´s Rudy on the left and David Mery of Symbian on the right
A Scottsman is playing a pipebag outside at the entrance of hall 2, so I feel the urge to join the masses again to discover, discover, discover…
3GSM and my publisher is here so of course I have to pay them a visit to talk about the current and the next book. On the picture thats Mark Hammond on the left and me on the right.
As promissed earlier, here are some pictures of Barcelona, just Barcelona, outside of 3GSM.

Like on a Formula 1 weekend. As you can see on the pictures, there are trucks everywhere and people swarming around to prepare equipment. It is going to be great!!!
Xen Dolev is hosting this week’s Carnival of the Mobilists. If you are interested in the mobile Internet, it is the
ressource to find out what people are thinking and in which direction
the technology is moving. Have fun!
Once upon a day, GSM authentication and encryption was quite easy. A key, a random number, a little algorithm and off you go. Seems that was too easy for some people so they came up with a new authentication and encryption system called Milenage. Very hard to find information about this written for the ‘non cryptanalyst’. Fortunately, I’ve finally found an exception. Take a look here. Enjoy!
