Highlights Day 1 @ The (Web) Summit, 2013

This morning The Web Summit changed its name. It'll be known as The Summit from now on, reflecting the broad appeal of what is the biggest technology event in Europe this year. What's remarkable is that the The Summit is only a few years old - and like the archetypal success story we hear about at this event The Summit itself has grown exponentially from 500 attendees in 2010 to 10,000 today, with 900 start-ups and 300+ speakers. Today was Day One of the 2013 event and I tried to cover as much ground as possible - there's lots to see and hear so you need to be quick to leave a stage, dash around the exhibition halls and make it back for the next must-see session.
