Points of interest: 
- The amount of money that’s gone into the streaming video. Not only is the main stage built like a TV set, as the whole event is being streamed, but there’s a whole studio in one of the other buildings, that’s being used by the [TWiT]( "TWiT") crew mainly ([see the video in my next post]( - Loïc considers the online audience to be an event in its own right - Loïc has been approached to do a Le Web in the UK, by the government.  - Press and bloggers are being given equal facilities and support
Here’s Loïc at the end of the tour:
