BARCELONA -- Mobile World Congress 2014 -- We're here!!!

Like so many others from around the mobile world, the Light Reading and Heavy Reading crews stepped blinking into the Barcelona sunshine Sunday morning, one day ahead of the official opening of the show (but clearly the new unofficial first day, there was so much going on).

Click below for a little of what we saw.

Re: MWC's new digs
I'd love that, but the people with roller suitcases and eyes glued to their phones make the show floor dangerous enough, not to mention the raised booths and uneven ground!

Re: 70,000 And More
I would say they definitely got over 70,000, most of which are spending the most time in Hall 3. Eek!

Two bits
My two most memorable moments so far: 1. The "30-minute" wait for a taxi that turned out to be 85 minutes. 2. Walking past a salon that offers the chance to exfoliate your feet with tiny fish that eat that nasty dead skin, conveniently located two doors down from a sushi house.

Re: 70,000 And More
Sadly my  dreams of being on the Light Reading bobsled team were crushed well before Sochi this year.

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.
