Barcelona Mobile Congress looks to future entrepreneurs

A London schoolboy has applied himself so keenly to technology that he has been
asked to act as an advisor at a major technology conference and exhibition
Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this
week.

Dylan Maryk, who is 14
and from Kensington,
caught the Congress organisers’ eye after they read about him designing his own iPhone
applications in the Evening
Standard
newspaper.

Maryk has been invited to report to the
conference and pass on ideas
to CEOs,
including from the likes of Google, Vodafone and Spotify, to help them attract young
people to such events.

“The organisers emailed
me the same day the Standard
printed my story. I’m looking forward to seeing the new phones and technology in
the exhibition and also the special area about application development,” says
Maryk.

Maryk’s first iPhone
application, MusicAlarm, has been downloaded 3,000 times and he launched iWink
in time for Valentines Day, an
app allowing people to flirt via their
handsets.

“It’s a great opportunity
for Dylan to be introduced to some of the leaders in this industry,” his father,
Denis, says of the Mobile World
Congress invitation.
