Michael Connelly - Trunk Music

With hindsight, I guess I should at least have tried to read the Bosch novels in a chronological order. Many of the not-so-important characters of any of the novels reappear later or earlier in other books. Well - too late. At least I now know how one crucial part more about Harry Bosch and Eleanor Wish’s ill-fated relation. Aside from that, as expected a compelling story I could not help but read pretty much cover-to-cover.

Michael Connelly - City of Bones

Another of the all famous Harry Bosch crime novels, and as well-written as expected. My biggest problem with Connelly is that once I start I have big trouble putting his books down, so I usually read from cover to cover. Sadly, with City of Bones being rather small (~400 pages), that meant only one evening of pleasure ;)

4th Euro-Africa ICT Group Meeting

The START project, also known as the EuroAfrica-ICT initiative, is supported by the European Commission (DG Information Society and Media), and aims at connecting sub-Saharan Africa and the European Union for ICT partnerships under the FP7 EC research funding programme.

The project is implemented by a consortium led by Sigma Consultants through its Orionis division and two key African Institutes specialising in the ICT field, the Meraka Institute of the CSIR (South Africa) and the Panos Institute West Africa (Senegal).

The 4th group meeting of the EuroAfrica-ICT initiative is going to take place in Brussels, Belgium, on January 31. I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of interesting people there, among them Santhi Kumaran (Head, Dept. of Computer Engineering & Information Technology, Kigali Institute of Science & Technology, Rwanda) and Serge Ferré (Vice-President, Nokia Europe).

Registration seems to be still open, just in case you’re interested ;)
