I spent Monday at the Business 2012 show at the O2 in London. I had an appointment with some of the people on the Google stand, but also had the chance to visit other companies and chat to exhibitors. It was a particular pleasure to meet the guys on the Kyocera stand and the ladies representing the British Library. A trade show can sometimes be slightly dull so a bit of magic really brightened up the day and got a lot of attention. There was also a huge film premiere going on nearby (for "Street Dance 2") so there was an interesting mix of suit-and-tie business people and over-excited teenagers in close proximity!
The O2 is a huge place and well worth a visit, especially to contrast how it is now compared to how it was when it was known years ago as the "Millennium Dome", and thanks to my time with the Google team I now know lots about their future Internet plans and forthcoming online products. A very long tiring but interesting day.
