Back from Cebit

I’m [back][3] from the [Cebit 2006][1] trade fair in Hannover. We saw nice, flat new [Shuttle mini-PCs][4], ridiculously overpowered graphics cards, RFID passports and entire boatfuls of Asian people. Also, we tried to talk to those responsible for putting browsers and mail clients on mobile phones at Samsung, Nokia etc., because it would be great if those phones had the [CAcert][2] root certificate built-in.

(And people dressed in long beige coats tried to sell us code. In any language! C, C+, JavaScript, C-, PHP, VB.net, C#, Forth, C$… Any language! Those wacky Indians. But we did take their pamphlets.)
