Privacy clearly is one of the hot topics for information society nowadays. Today we had very comprehensive tutorial and very practical knowledge about the privacy as a concept, target and requirement. It was very interesting to see how privacy has been changing over the times and what kind of impact it does have for all of us. Board meeting and tasty dinner were perfection for the day. So after all, very good meeting, again :-)

Connected Health

Yesterday we had very interesting presentation about "Connected Health". Some examples from the world of healthcare and especially very interesting visions what ICT industry could do to make that world even better. We also heard what kind of opportunities there are to make healthcare work even more productive by interoperability and well targeted ICT systems.

We also welcomed one new member to RCTI. And when dinner discussion was also very fluent, I think closer to perfect club meeting is very hard to get. Thanks for all involved :-)
