José Valles is on a mission to help bridge the divide between mobile operators and the app developer community and is harnessing much of BlueVia's energies towards that goal.

And, as part of the recently created Digital division of operator giant Telefónica SA (NYSE: TEF), BlueVia is in a great position to develop relationships and bring together the different people and companies that could, and should, be working together.

As Valles explains in this video, a greater degree of understanding between developers and the communications service providers can help expose their applications and lead to benefits for all parties, including the end users.

See Valles, a big Otis Redding fan, explain what BlueVia has been up to in this regard from about 1:00 into the interview.

And later in the video you can find out what Valles thought was hot at this year's Mobile World Congress and which team the Spaniard believes is going to win the Euro 2012 soccer championship this summer. (Clue: It isn't England…)

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
