I'm super excited and very honoured to be part of Le Web '09 in Paris this year (as an official blogger)! I haven't been back for years and Les Blogs (pre-Le Web) was also my very first trip to Paris. I know, I know. I kept saying it for the past year and a half: "I'll be back" and I even booked flights and coordinated with friends. But last minute something would come up: another conference or a deadline or I was just flat broke. But this time I'm so committed that I applied to be an official blogger and now that I'm accepted, I'm taking my role very seriously. :)
I can't wait to see my old friends from Silicon Sentier and FINALLY visit La Cantine. I plan to come in a few days early to shake off my jetlag and wander aimlessly around one of my favourite cities. Then I'll also be bright-eyed to see the awesome lineup, including Laura Fitton (who just launched the amazing OneForty) and Violet Blue! Also great to see Ben Metcalfe speaking as it was him I first met at Les Blogs in 2005 and who caused the big hubub! I think I might have to organize a 'Bullshit' mob. ;)
Either way, I'm looking forward to being in Paris, going to Le Web, seeing old friends, eating some nice food and drinking some good wine and reconnecting.
