A Little Chair Leads to Big Conversation: Our Monday and the Live Stream Schedule from La Social Media Club House

December 8, 2009 in Traveling Geeks | Comments (0)


With all that’s going on, we wanted to share a recap of our Monday and give everyone the lowdown for this week’s schedule of live broadcasts from La Social Media Club House
It was a big Monday for the SMCH gang! After a morning of croissants and coffee, we hit the road (sans Scoble who would spend the afternoon kickin’ it in Paris with Michael Arrington & Gabe Rivera)and met up with Patrice Lamothe, CEO of Pearltrees, for an exquisite seafood lunch and a stroll through Montmarte. (Video of that conversation to be posted later.)
From there we split up, with Chris and Kristie heading for the Eiffel Tower while Dana Oshiro and I headed underground to traverse Paris by Metro back to the Club House. After a few hours we four regrouped at La Cantine.
We were to have dinner near the Club House with Colette Ballou of Ballou PR. As the La Cantine cocktail party drew to a close, in whooshed the fabulous Colette – there to escort us by Metro back to our neighborhood. American born, Parisian-infused Colette is one of the truly effervescent people I know. On top of that she runs what I believe is one of the best PR firms on this side of the pond.
She’d graciously found a dinner spot, La Petite Chaise, that was literally yards away from our apartment’s front door. Besides location, the cuisine was divine. Colette proceeded to tell us that it also had a slightly scandalous history.
At one time, the neighborhood in which we sat had been largely fields and woods, dotted with mansions and lodges that were used by the gentry for hunting … and for trysts with their mistresses. Thus the phrase “hunting” had an amusing double entendre. Mike Sigal, co-founder of Guidewire Group, joined us for dinner. Much laughter and copious amounts of food later, we returned to the Club House for the first of our daily, live stream broadcasts. Sadly, something got borked with the stream so there’s no archive – which is a real shame because the conversation was saucy and fun, thoughtful and provocative.
Much of our discussion centered around the evolution of the real-time web and the impact it has had – both good and bad – on the way in which content is gathered and consumed. We also talked about the nature of accuracy and how in the rush to be first, more often than not the real-time web results in many factual gaffes, which range from humorous to potentially dangerous.
It was a lively debate and portends well for the chock-full schedule we have ahead this week.
So that you don’t miss a beat, here’s the schedule of our streaming activities from this week’s LeWeb fun at La Social Media Club House. In between we’ll be stuffing the Tweetstream, Flickr and any number of other platforms with news, interviews and perspectives.
We welcome questions for the guests as well as suggestions or recommendations on topics and themes to cover.
