Take a look on what we have planned for next week...

  • On Monday, we're traveling to Barcelona, Spain for a look at life in a connected city. See how the historic capital of Catalonia is developing a smart community model based on technology. 
  • On Tuesday, we'll take you back to school "BYOD" style. A look at how one university ramps up to meet the demands of a student population armed with thousands of devices, who are ready to connect anytime, anywhere.
  • On Wednesday, it's the latest installment of our My Networked Life Series. You'll meet Alisa Vogt from Germany. She is a university student leveraging connectivity for her studies and her social life as she moves from various platforms gathering and sharing information. 

We are looking forward to sharing all this great content with you next week. Have a great weekend!
