Here’s the view from my room in London as we arrived last week for meetings ahead of LeWeb. I met my good friend Mark Ward of the BBC for lunch and caught up on gaming, security, politics and tech networking. Afterwards, I ran from Oxford to Tottenham Court Road to meet with Alex Willcock of Imagini. We caught up on the latest developments and innovations from the company that is allowing all walks of life communicate through the universal language of images, before I ran to a place full of imagery – the National Portrait Gallery. I met Vic Keegan of The Guardian in the lobby and we strolled through the gallery to check out the amazing paintings – reflecting on our own meager efforts we employ each month at our Deadline Painting Group on Flickr.
On Friday, Dominic and I packed our bags and headed to Paris via Eurostar. A bit of rest in the City of Lights before embarking on a whirlwind of networking, socializing and business.
