Philippe Lerouge - Mobile banking pioneer

One of the great things of attending conferences is just meeting people in real life. Modern technology (Twitter, LinkedIN and Blogging) is a major tool to share information and to learn, but nothing compare to actually meeting the people behind the thoughts. I attended MP09 in Paris recently and met a number of people that I just read about in the past.

Amongst others I met Philippe Lerouge on the stand of PaybyPhone. I have scanned his blog a few times (be warned it is in French) and have spoken to him via e-mails. Now I had the time to meet him in person and to discuss some of the more intricate aspects of the industry. It was a good meeting. Philippe, I wish you luck with the new venture.
