REYKJAVIK, Iceland -- 2020 Vision -- Light Reading's communications hot spring is now open for business in Iceland!

We kicked off the 2020 Vision Executive Summit in Frón -- as some of the locals call it -- on Monday night with a reception at the Hilton Reykjavik Nordica hotel and an epic Icelandic family-style meal at the Fiskmarkaðurinn restaurant. As you'll see in the slides this 12-course tasting menu was a feast for fish-loving locavores.

Ragnheiður Elín Árnadóttir, Iceland's minister of industry and tourism then welcomed the attendees. After that, service providers, vendors and the Light Reading crew got down to the business of figuring out the next five years of challenges and opportunities in the communications business.

More on that later!

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.
