Le Web: First Impressions
So, Le Web. My fourth time here. And after an epic queue to pick up my press pass, I’m in the conference and starting to blog/photograph/video anything of interest.
But there’s one thing really of not.
The show is *packed*.
For the first session, with Jack Dorsey, the inventor of Twitter, it was literally standing room only, with hundreds of people standing around the edge. Depsite the credit crunch people have turned up in force. That’s a testament to people’s view of how important the internet economy is going to be as we come out of recession.
Other things of note:
- The connectivity is fantastic – great bandwidth even with all the people here - It’s warm, [unlike last year](http://www.onemanandhisblog.com/archives/2008/12/le_web_blogger_dies_of_starvat.html), Almost too warm, in fact. - There’s plenty of food and coffee
Looks like the major lessons have been learnt from 2008. Let’s see how the content pans out…
