A few visuals to get you in the ‘traveling geeks’ frame of mind. The Traveling Geeks are getting ready to roll………and move, non-stop for the next four days.

We had a ‘geek’ session to ensure we’ll stay connected and can create content, anytime, anywhere. Thanks Orange, Skype and MAXroam. Below, Amanda, Olivier, Sky and Robin get the scoop.

Ah yes, ambience. Get used to it, she says with a smile. You’re not in Kansas anymore. Silicon Valley either. Renee Blodgett, Jean-Xtophe and Eliane Fiolet in ambience-rich Les Bougresses.

MobileGlobe’s founder Yoann Valensi was our host so typical “traveling geek” style, we looked at toys and saw demos over dinner. Thanks Yoann, look forward to trying out your service. Rodrigo, what was your question again?

Thank god for SMS and some of the phones that did work (we’ve had issues with ’em – unlocked devices can have its complications)….Ewan Spence from Edinburgh made it with luggage in time to join us. A joyous Frederic Lardinois to his right.

And as for the food, what can I say? It’s Paris after all. We didn’t starve nor did we complain. Great job Les Bougresses (located in the Marais…..most definitely worth a try).
