  • LeWeb tickets are half price through February 28th (yes, tomorrow)

    It kind of feels like it was only yesterday that we were all watching Loïc Le Meur parade across the stage at LeWeb dressed up in Angry Bird gear. Yet, Géraldine and Loïc Le Meur have already announced the dates for year’s edition of the infamous Paris-based tech conference.

  • Here Comes The Wetware

    Throw out your touchscreens, kibosh your Kinects: thought-controlled computing is the new new thing. Brain-computer interface technology has been simmering for years, and seems finally ready to bubble out of research labs and into the real world. Earlier this year, friends of mine at the Toronto art space Site3 built a thought-controlled flamethrower, for fun. (Don’t you hate how… Read More

  • Those Two LeWeb Tickets Now Include Lodging Thanks To Airbnb. Tell Us Why You Need To Go

    Yesterday, I noted that we were giving away two free tickets to LeWeb ’10. But I was quick to point out that while the free tickets, normally priced at around 2,000 euros, are a great deal, you would still have to pay for your own travel to Paris and lodging for the conference, which takes place on December 8 and 9. Well guess what? You can cross lodging off of that list. Airbnb has… Read More

  • Au revoir et merci, Traveling Geeks

    I’ve spent a wonderful week in Paris, attending the infamous Le Web conference put together by Loic Le Meur and his amazing wife Geraldine.

  • The European Gang Hits Le Web, Compares Silicon Valley To Europe

    TechCrunch writer Paul Carr forced me to write about his on-stage panel discussion at the Le Web conference, and as usual when people threaten me with violence, I was happy to oblige. But it was really a good thing he twisted my arm, especially considering the fact that there was more than one TC’er in the panel: TechCrunch Europe editor Mike Butcher was also very much present. The… Read More
