If you have read any kind of technology blog, or peruse the top search terms on Technorati, you will have come across the blogstorm that was leWeb3. It’s still top of the search terms on that site. Last year, the same conference garnered some controversy after a key speaker reacted to comments on the IRC channel being projected on the main screen. I got a lot out of last years show, met some really great people and enjoyed my time in Paris. Due to the move to new York, I decided that finances and lack of holiday meant I could not go. And I think I’m glad I missed it. The controversy this year, was all about the conference being disrupted and moved around due to 3 political discussions that took place, 2 of them by French presidential candidates.
Now with the dust dying down from that, you have some more positive posts coming out about lessons that could be learned, as well as what was good about the sessions.
Tom, who did a great job of pulling together the various reactions across the web has a post about how he would do it differently. let me know when you organise this then Tom, I try and make it! he Gay Expat picks up Adam‘s challenge and gives us 7 points to think about. And finally, Nicole has an indepth look at wireless and the issues surrounding it. Almost always a problem at these kind of conferences, the wifi can make the difference between a good and a great time. And finally, Ewan is going to be posting his notes of the sessions over the next few days with the wisdom of hindsight and without the clutter of what was actually happening. I’m looking forward to that.
