Last week the world's largest annual computer expo, the CeBIT conference, was held in Hannover, Germany. While CeBIT still covers the latest physical advances in things like consumer electronics, server hardware, security and access devices, etc, this year there was also a focus on the application development side of technology. This included a large area devoted to open-source and a number of panels devoted to general education on topics such as Virtual Worlds, Digital Content Distribution, as well as a panel I moderated on Business Solutions with Enterprise Mashups.
