  • Hi Michaël. Sorry I missed your presentation, but you know I'm already a rabid user of your apps and a big fan. I also had a good excuse, I was preparing my presentation ;) Thanks a lot for all the nice tweets you sent about it during my 'performance'.

    In case you would have another look at it, I have just published my presentation about the future of mobile. Please let me know what you think :)
