Le Web, in Paris on December 8-9 2010, has announced their initial speaker list. It has clearly emerged as the largest and most important Internet and technology conference in Europe and is becoming a must attend event despite the miserable Paris weather in December. Co-organizers Geraldine and Loic Le Meur continue to ham it up with promotional videos for the event, and this one cracks me up. In the past we’ve partnered with Le Web to do startup launch events and I’ve had one or two controversial moments on stage. I’m looking forward to being there again this year.
