The students at the FTTH conference

Three students from the University of Ghent in Belgium have set up a think tank area at the conference and have been surrounded for much of the conference.

They were invited by Joeri to demonstrate what the younger generation do with a decent broadband connection, and have been provided with equipment - cameras, PS3, Linux box, Windows box etc, and have been experimenting with all sorts of applications and even started a blog specially for the conference.

The students seem quite surprised that these people who know all the highly technical info about putting in the high speed connections seem unaware about how to upload a video to youtube! Whilst the 'suits' seem hellish surprised about what the younger generation are doing with their connections. All great stuff and every techie conference should invite some youngsters to show off what can be done with the toys and tools.
