I took the train up to San Francisco to the Supernova conference, whichlet me experiment with using my cell phone as a Bluetooth modem. Given that I was sitting on a rapidly moving train, I expected this tobe a dancing bear, but it actually worked pretty well for around 40minutes -- until the train went into a set of tunnels near the end ofthe trip. Speed wasn't great but was adequate for email. Major problem was actually vibration.
I went to Monday's Connected Work workshop mainly in hopes of gettingsome insights into collaboration trends. Not too many surprises-- blogs and wikis everywhere, of course. Some good pointsabout the need to not lock down things too tightly (heresy totraditional IT departments) because your breakthrough ideas usuallycome from cross-fertilization.
