I used to just be a geek, but now I’m a Traveling Geek

Just a short post to let you know that next week I’ll be reporting from LeWeb in Paris with the Traveling Geeks. This is a group formed by Renee Blodgett where more than a dozen tech bloggers attend tech functions and report on the event. Previous Traveling Geeks trips have gone to London, Israel, and South Africa.

For the end of ‘09, the Traveling Geeks’ Paris team includes Eliane Fiolet, Tom Foremski, Robin Wauters, Kim-Mai Cutler, Frederic Lardinois, Matt Buckland, Sky Schuyler, Jerome Tranie, Ewan Spence, Olivier Ezratty, Cyrille de Lasteyrie, Renee Blodgett, Amanda Coolong, Beth Blecherman, and Phil Jeudy.

And as I mentioned, this Traveling Geeks function will be at LeWeb, but that’s only on December 9th and 10th, and we’ll be doing a lot more reporting before and after. All of these bloggers will be blogging on all their respective blogs which are often more than one.

Thanks to our nice sponsors Orange, Answers.com, and Parrot for making this trip possible. And a huge thanks to Renee Blodgett, Eliane Fiolet, Phil Jeudy, and Sky Schuyler for working their respective tails off to pull off this event in just a few weeks. The four of them organized this entire event and I and the rest of the geeks owe them enormous thanks.
