I’m sitting in the audience at Le Web 3 listening to a talk by VC’s on whether or not we are in a bubble again.
However, live blogging at this conference has effectively been disabled by the lack of connectivity. Isn’t it just a tad ironic to have a conference called Le Web where web access is crippled?
The web connectivity is being organised by Orange. If Orange can’t manage to deliver wifi in a room with about 700 people (there are more in the room but only 500-700 have laptops I’d estimate) what chance is their for their delivering connectivity in larger scenarios?
I’m writing this post in Microsoft’s Live Writer (yeuch!) because the connectivity is soooo poor. I have no idea if this is even going to post.

haha, the connection is obviously three times stronger than normal.
3 times better than your average web conference?
Well, it’s not been Orange’s Xmas, to be honest – they are getting bad press everywhere – Shutting down SmartGroups when they are advertising “Togetherness” in the UK and then cutting off all GRPS access for a day (http://www.mailspaces.com/spaces/smartsupport/discussion/threads/224264)
News like this sends me into a fit of rage.
Providing WiFi access to 700 (or more) people at a conference is not fecking brain surgery.
You just need qualified people who know what they’re doing.
Orange is a phone company and should stay away from WiFi.
Tell the organisers to give me a ring for the next conference we will take care of any wifi connectivity with guaranteed performance.
Weren’t there the same issues last year?
