Le Web: Like a web conference, without the web

I didn’t go to Le Web. No offense to Parisians, but I much prefer visiting Europe in the non-winter and non-conference months. Still, I know some folks who were headed there with much excitement, so I figured I’d tag along virtually (can one still use that expression?) via blog and Twitter feeds. After all, it was Europe’s largest web 2.0 conference, with 1,800 entrepreneurs each forking over €1,500 for the chance to demo their startups and meet with their peers from around the world.
