Few hours left prior to our event Les blogs 2.0, I am beginning to be really stressed, hope we didn't forget any details...
By the way, if you have any question you'd like me to ask to the panelist on my session, "Tracking /Listening to the online world", don't hesitate to leave me a comment, it will be on tuesday 2.30 pm and I'll be talking with:
Mark Rogers, CEO, Market Sentinel, UK
Salim Ismail, CEO, PubSub, USA
David Sifry, CEO, Technorati, USA
Yann Motte, VP Product Management,
Yahoo! Europe, U.K.
Mark Fletcher, Founder, Bloglines, USA
I am going to moblog a lot those two days, mainly do Vlog interviews of speakers and participants that I'll post here and/or probably on my podcast, I don't know yet what wil be the most convenient, so stay tuned !
This afternoon we spent some time at the place of the conference Les Blogs 2.0 to last check the logistical and technical things like sound, banners, plugs etc... I took some pictures to show you how it will looks like. It's quite ready to welcome you, so have a look...
As you can see, your laptop will be welcome ... ;o)
We are closing the registration for our conference Les Blogs 2.0 as we reach now the capacity maximum of the room : 350 people, two weeks prior to the event !
The Wifi issue is also behind us, we should have a bandwith of 8 Mbit/s, I can now sleep again, it has been really not far from being a real nightmare, so special thanks to WaveStorm (hope you'll make it work well guys, everyone knows you're in charge) and Jean-Baptiste (thanks for puting us in contact) for their help. We'll have a real hotspot working there !
The organisation of Les Blogs 2.0 that I am coproducing with Six Apart and Elizabeth Albrycht is going quite well while at the same time consuming a lot of time ... We are very happy to see that we now have 265 attendees so this is really going to be a great event thanks to this world wide participation. Getting all your inputs is going to be fascinating ! US, Europe, Asia, Africa, we'll all be there...
My nightmare of these days is the Wifi... We were supposed to get a sponsor, one of the main wifi constructors ( you know, companies like, D-Link, Netgear, Linksys) but unfortunately, last time change, this is not going to happen... Bad news... So, Loïc got a suggestion to contact The Cloud, what I did this morning, I hope they will get back with a positive answer... As you all know, we NEED a wifi hotspot in the center of the room, we'll be more than 300 bloggers, so you can easily imagine our need of a professional solution. By the way, would you have any recomendation, please leave me a comment !
So yes, I am sorry for the lack of posts those days, my arrival at Edelman and Les Blogs 2.0 in less than 3 weeks are 2 good reasons to be quite busy, but what a great job ! ;o)
Looking forward to meeting you on the 5&6 december !
