Every now and then I just like to steer people towards something that I've seen which is interesting. At CeBIT two weeks ago there was a huge amount of M2M-related stuff. It was certainly one of the stars of the show. Aside from some very interesting discussions at my session in the M2M Zone, in particular with Iridium and Globalcomm about the role of satellite operators and with lots of others about standardisation and privacy. Anyway, that aside, while wandering the floors I came across a big area dedicated to the Audi Urban Future Initiative. Some really interesting stuff for anyone keen on smart cities. I'll be publishing Machina Research's take on the Smart City in the next couple of months, so keep 'em peeled for that.

I'll be attending (and doing a bit of moderating at) the Mobile Data Association event on the 20th March here in London. It should be a great event. Critically there will be a lot of people from vertical industries such as Clear Channel and Docobo, giving their views. Other speakers include IBM, Freescale, Qualcomm and Everything Everywhere. Kicking off at 9.30 in Baker Street. Full details can be found here. Hope to see you there.
