Back to Les Blogs

Update: I see I'm not the only one who thinks politics have no place at this conference...

The second day of Le Web 3 is underway and it's turning into something of a political circus. It's great to hear Shimon Peres speak about the things he knows a lot about, or all of the French presidential candidates on whatever keeps them busy. But unfortunately this is not why I really enjoyed the previous two Les Blogs conferences. And it's not why I came to Le Web 3. Despite the great lineup and the great effort done by Loïc to make it a memorable event, the event has lost it edginess, its 'geeky vibe' that made it so special when it was first held. The back channel, ubiquitous wifi, the audience as a speaker, a group of 200 attendees (there are now 200 journalists), it's all missing this time. And there are too many people speaking in French because they don't speak English. This all really turns it into a normal 'shut-up-and-listen' conference.

Back to Les Blogs, no more LeWeb3. For me at least...
