Why I am heading to Le Web 2012

It is almost a ritual for me — come December, I pack my bags for a week and head to Paris, where I attend Le Web, the must-attend technology conference in Europe. Sure, there are many events — some old and some new — but there is nothing like Le Web for someone like me to instantly refresh and reconnect with all my friends, sources and startups in Europe. Of course, as a side benefit, it is in Paris – the food is great and shopping is fun too.

Looks like this year is going to be a fun event, for the theme for the year — the internet of things — is something that is core to our way of thinking. The internet of things is based on GigaOM’s core philosophy of connectedness and how it changes everything. Loic and Geraldine Le Meur, who organized the conference, just released the full lineup of speakers and sessions and it promises to be a great few days. Just listening to the Tony Fadell of Nest Labs alone is worth it.

The conference will be held on December 4, 5 and 6th. I hope to see you there at the event.
