LeWeb ’08 – how not to run a technology conference?

Loic LeMeur, a popular French tech entrepreneur and blogger who runs a
Web 2.0 startup called Seesmic when he has spare time, is the organizer
of LeWeb, arguably one of Europe’s most ‘star-studded‘ internet

The first LeWeb conference took place in 2005 and has grown from a
modest 250 attendees that first year to over 1,800 in 2007. As Paul
Carr of The Guardian notes in his report on LeWeb 2008, LeWeb has seen
its fair share of controversy and criticism in the past.
