Fon launches the PeekFon with free PanEuropean GPRS Roaming

Martin doesn’t say if it connects to Exchange however the BIG question is how Arrington will react.

Fon has actually managed to get a product to market without a whole soap opera of blogs etc.

Fon launches the PeekFon with free PanEuropean GPRS Roaming.

Zappos and happiness…

I’m half awake but there is a big take away from this presentation. To be happy we need purpose and a large part of that is a feeling of control over our own work. How many people can claim that they control their own work in the modern workplace?

This could be considered very hippy but he was listened to in almost silence by over a thousand people.


Mike Arrington grows up…

Arrington has been at LeWeb for the last few years.

Usually he’s a pain the rear end trying to create a news story and being stupidly critical.

This year he seems to have grown up. He’s just managed to chair an interesting discussion without looking for a fight.

At last, the triumph of facts over form.

Le Whinger…

Comments by Thomas Crampton…

“From his comments about the Sauna set up outside the conference, Carr shows his true European colors:

I found [the sauna] packed to its pine rafters with Brits, getting slowly drunk on licorice vodka and gleefully bitching about how disappointing everything was.

This gleeful bitching and cynicism by Carr and his fellow Europeans may have something to do with the difficulty Europeans have in getting things done.”

Le Web attracts Le Whinger – Thomas Crampton

To be honest; I think that Thomas is being generous. 

I think a large part of this is jealousy, and not jealousy of Loïc but of the sucess of Le Web.

In 2006 a lot of the British commenators who complained about Le Web said that next year they would organize a better conference in the UK. It must be said that those Whingers from 2006 have really shown Loïc up with their action and hard work.
