First impressions.

Gartner and #innotribe get social 
The key tech themes of mobile, social, big data and cloud are consistent.

Citigroup's keynote at #Sibos … nil points 
Sorry to my friends at Citi, but I was seriously underwhelmed by John Havens, COO for Citigroup's speech.

I said RMB, not Rumba 
Lots of opening thoughts seem to be focused upon China and the importance of the Remnimbi.

Banks wasting billions on inefficient clearing 
In today's keynote plenary, it's clear that banks are spending at least $20bn on clearing and settlement … and wasting a large part of it.

Rogue traders and big data 
The innotribe stream discussed lots of things, but the link between rogue traders and big data made me wake up.

Operatic arias and sigh boats 
A summary of the day two evening, including awaking to find the eurozone is melting down!

Banks should build their business models as APIs 
According to one speaker at the morning session on new economies, banks should just throw their functionality out to the community as APIs.
