SMX Stockholm, having a blast!

I’ve been here at SMX for the last few days and I’ve not been as prolific as I was last week at A4UExpo, mostly due to the fact that I’m actually talking to a lot of people and talking about loads and loads of nice stuff. Some highlights: Yesterday morning, the session on what’s new…
