The past few weeks have been pretty busy with a variety of events. LBS hosted its first combined TMT conference with the technology and media club on Friday Feb 25th with speakers on topics such as new revenue streams for IPTV and the forecast for cloud computing. There was one particularly interesting speaker who equated using cloud computing to storing informational currency in a bank. While you appear to be giving up control in the form of a physical box hosted on site, the security and convenience of cloud computing is similar to withdrawing money from an ATM.

That weekend I had some friends from Barcelona visiting (they were going to pursue careers in the TMT space) and they also had the fortune to stay for Tattoo, a school wide celebration of cultural diversity with artistic and gastronomic displays. The entire school was set up with tents as students prepared food native to their homelands wearing traditional dress and putting on performances to display their artistic talents.

This past weekend was spent in Lisbon. With exams coming up, it was a good opportunity for the exchange students to have one big go at a trip before many of us run off at the end of the 10 week term period. Time seems to have flown by as we are already in March.
