LeWeb London update

LeWeb London will happen on June 19-20 so the team is working hard on it.Had wonderful few days in London last week and it was the second time I saw the venue, the Central Hall Westminster.

I have been, again, really impressed by this venue which is a Church. It’s very important for us that LeWeb doesn’t look like a trade show because it isn’t one, we want an atmosphere that is more of a summit gathering tech leaders, successful and would be entrepreneurs, press, bloggers, VCs and business angels and large corporations composing the digital ecosystem.

Le Web London

Can’t be more central:

The LeWeb team has started working in the venue for the first time last week, captured a few moments:

I am talking to many friends in London to make LeWeb London as good as possible and added some speakers and I’m looking for speaker suggestions.

Got some nice coverage also on Bloomberg TV about technology trends and LeWeb London

Thanks all for the incredible help and support we’re getting to make LeWeb London possible. More soon.

    Would love to speak at #lewebldn 2012. Me @samdownie:disqus  as a speaker to talk about Disability (hot subject at the moment) and how the web and social media has enabled people with disability’s to voice out their concerns. example: #spartacusreport #wrb #NHSbill . I helped put together the #spartacusreport using research pulled from various FOi requests and Govt white papers, which anyone can read online under the Data Protection Act. I think Disability issues SHOULD be discussed at LeWeb London #lewebldn 2012, as a lot of people with Disability’s use technology to communicate with, it also helps to break down barriers.I think that I would be ideal in doing doing this at Le Web LDN 2012 (and poss Le Web Paris 2012 as well?)
