LeWeb3 – 3

le wib

I had to do his deeper post on this event. And first of all give the deepest of all respect to the team. Its the most welldone conference I ever attended.

Program – was really worked trough – better then any other conference iI attended this year.

Speakers – the best i could imagine (Only Mygdal an Reeboot can match it – but Reboots problem is always that I dont understand how cool the speakers are until 2-3yeras later). I Still dont really understand what I do in this crowd. I must say that I had expected a REAL SUPERSTAR - Bono, Sergey, Larry or Jobs…

Food – was fantastic (above fantastic)
(Its not Loics fault that the waiters are working according to French law and rules – and have no problem looking right trough you :)

Attendees – the crowd was THE BEST AND MOST INTERNATIONAL possible.

Loic – the energy and charm beats everyone. I still have to see the brilliant intelectual and business man – but Im very sure he is inside the Showman, Blogger, Father, Husband, Frechman without attitude (nice!), International Connector, Feinschmecker (there is a whole extra dimension to this guy – the blogosphere dont know), Politician (he did help Sarkozy – is invited to the whitehouse – and had him at last year LeWeb), Entrepanuer (history shows) and most of a überNetworker. Im so impressed.
So why dont I believe in the large conference format. Well I just think its to big and non personal – and I saw a lot of people who looked a bit lonely among the big crowd (I dare to refer to Sartre – my first and probobly last ever littertre reference). And I have to say that even I – salesman and pumped with selfconfdence – felt a little strange walking next to all these superstars I know from Blogs/Videos/Twitter/Etc – and where so so busy talking to eachother – Calacanis, Scoble…. (Guys I have even been emaiing with). Size matters ;)

    Morten,

    I am glad I introduced you to Loic back in the day. It was nice seeing you.

    These comments are dead on. Loic’s folks did a great job… and every aspect was well produced. It was a valuable event. I am not sure exactly why I felt the audience (and not all the audience but definately some) seemed a little “punch drunk” but I just felt I didnt connect the way I wanted.

    and what about Starck ?
