On The Record Online

Queen Rania iof Jordan at LeWeb 2009Each December, roughly 2,500 technology executives and Internet enthusiasts convene in Paris for Le Web, a two-day conference where start-ups pitch venture capitalists and emerging technology companies demo their wares.  Founded by Loic Le Meur (the entrepenuer behind the social software application Seesmic) and his wife Geraldine, Le Web has grown in popularity over the years and has come to be know as one of the European technology conferences to be and be seen at.

I’m going as an official conference podcaster and continuing on to Frankfurt the following week to teach the first US-German Social Media Boot Camp which will be a two-day social media training on the 14th and 15th of December 2010 with DDP Direct. Complete details are at www.socialmediabootcamp.com  
I have been wanting to attend Le Web for a couple of years now, so I was excited when Andrea Vascellari (@vascellari), the CEO of itive.net, suggested to the conference organizers that I be invited as an official conference podcaster, and the dates dovetailed nicely with my upcoming Frankfurt gig so I'm going.

In this Le Web 2010 Preview Pocast, Andrea and I are joined by two other Official Le Web conference bloggers.  Participating in the discussion are Tara Hunt (@missrogue), CEO/Shwowp, Author/The Whuffie Factor and blogger at http://www.horsepigcow.com and Algerian blogger Ismail Chaib (@iChaib) who currently lives in France where he is studying for his Masters while serving as co-founder of VC-funded start-up ASQ.  

Before we dive into a discussion of the agenda and survival tips for getting the most out of the conference, we talk about Facebook Messaging, the impact of globalization and technology on the economy and the world outside the tech bubble. I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please consider sharing it with your network.

At the conference, I’ll be talking to other Le Web Conference bloggers including Henriette Weber, Nebojsa Radovic, Erno Hannink and others.
