HP Bazaar/3GSM Conference, Cannes, France - 17th-21st February 2003

3G Lab are having something of a presence at the annual 3GSM shindig in Cannes. As well as a stand, the company has also chartered a yacht - the Jacaranda Bleu - for schmoozing. Nosher is not so much there for the conference, as to attend HP's "Beach Bazaar" code camp at the nearby Capron College. Instead of ligging it up on a luxury boat for the week, Nosher is sleeping on a gymnasium floor with a bunch of other nerds, writing a bit of code and generally hanging out. There is, of course, the occasional chance to go down to the exhibition and see what the 3G Lab gang are up to...
