yesterday's technology tomorrow
Saturday, January 10, 2004eTech via Helsinki
Wooohoooo....this week has seen some uber programming by yours truly along with a new gadget a conference booked and a trip Helsinki arranged....all in 3 days!!!!
In early Feb I'm off to Helsinki for a few day meeting/conference at Nokia followed by a weekend in Helsinki enjoying the ummmm darkness (apparently is light for 2 hours a day at the moment) then I'm off to San Diego to the O'Reilly Emerging Technology conference for the week.
If anyone has any suggestions about what to do in Helsinki or anyone is going to eTech let me know...I've love to meet some people on my travels.
Using a few (ok lots of) grams of courage, I put up my hand to give an participant session at eTech talking about this tres cool P2P app (code name Icy Pole) I am building which will form local networks over bluetooth and find music and people you might like within close proximity to you ie. while you are on a tram/bus/train.
Lots of J2ME coding this week to do it; for those non techies....this means I've been coding things to run on a cell phone.
Note to Google - I've been using Mac OS X to code J2ME Midlets using the Nokia SDK and sending the applications to a Nokia N Gage and Nokia 6600. Send me a mail if you have any questions about how to do this!.
And....we got new Nokia 6600 phones at work to go with the Nokia N-Gage we already have. The 6600 has a built in camera along with the only Java Bluetooth implementation on a Nokia phone.
So today I've been snapping just about anything thats happening onto the phone.....much fun.
