Welcome to LeWeb'08! [en]

[fr] A la conférence LeWeb'08 à Paris.

Here we are& it’s started! Here I am at LeWeb’08 — and now that I’m here, very happy :-) (I’ve come to dread events in a way, but that’s the subject of another post and has nothing to do with LeWeb’08).

For those of you who are not here with us, keep up with what’s going on by following the live video feed by Ustream.

Tweets, photos and posts tagged “leweb083 are aggregated in the LeWeb’08 sixgroups livecommunity and @eventtrack.

If you are blogging about LeWeb’08, you might want to add the Livecommunity bar to your site (I have to approve them but if I see stuff about LeWeb’08 on your site it won’t be a problem). Here’s the code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://leweb08.sixgroups.com/widgets/api/json/v/03/"></script>
<div id="sgBarContainer"><span style="font: 9px Arial, sans-serif; color: #ccc; ">Livecommunity powered by <a style="font: 9px Arial, sans-serif; color: #ccc; " href="http://sixgroups.com/" title="Community Software">sixgroups.com</a></span>
<script type="text/javascript">if(sg){document.body.style.paddingTop = "27px";sg.addWidget({type: "sgBar", vposition: "fixed"});}</script>

You can see it at work on this site.

There is also a Bloggersbase blog (with contest) that you can contribute to. Official bloggers (bloggers who received a blogger accreditation from me), don’t forget to add your publications to the “Coverage” page. (The general public doesn’t have access to this page, so if you’re not an official blogger you won’t be able to see it.)

The first five rows have small tables, each fitted with an ethernet cable and power. Most of the seats there are taken, but I still see a few empty ones. I’m on the wifi, which is behaving nicely (fingers crossed).

Right, I’m going to leave you and continue listening to David Weinberger :-)

Oh, and you can find me (and others) on irc.freenode.net in channel #leweb08&

  1. Hello Stephanie,

    I have really enjoyed Le Web. I will come again next year for sure. Shame that we didn’t meet. It’s true that I was shooting video interviews and network all around. Did cover the event as well. Are you going to NextWeb in Amsterdam?

    Have a lovely Xmas.


  2. Hi Guillaume — glad you liked it!

    I don’t have any conference attending plans yet for next year apart from LIFT. Like many bloggers, I usually rely on accreditations, invitations to speak, or getting involved in the organisation (like with LeWeb’08) to be present. So… we’ll see!
