Top ten of #leweb09 in Paris 

# TOP APP Jack Dorsey of Twitter started us off on a high note with SQUARE definitely the favourite app. A cool payment system you can use on your smart phone, it was a hit with everyone as Loic tested it on stage with his iphone and effected a payment. He also announced twitter plans for a developers camp in San Francisco in 2010. twitter scoop #leweb09 chirp on Twitpic The business plan is expressed in the image above, my photo taken from the screen at the conference. The wifi worked well much to everyone's relief this year. # TOP SPEAKER AND FORCE FOR CHANGE must go to Her Majesty Queen Rania who blew everyone away with her flawless delivery, warmth and Tech saviness. I was lucky enough to have a brief moment to greet her and congratulate her on her speech as she left the speakers room where she had discussions with Twitter and Facebook to bring about change in education, health and opportunity for the women and children without access to education and the services we don't give a second thought to. # TOP MOMENT meeting my NY Times Bestseller list, "Crush it" friend, Gary Vee outside the Mayors cocktail party in the magnificent City Hall of Paris . Our group snapped us together and sang out "Ah the two wine people finally together in Paris! We had a quick catch up before we went out to eat. highlight #leweb09 @garyvee @QueenRania @chrisbrogan so inspi... on Twitpic The following day his session had the audience stirred up and shouting for more as he delivered his legendry thunder. Then, in an equally serendipitous moment, I was wandering down an empty street in the Marias to attend a dinner, when Who should I bump into again along rue Sévignéy, but Gary and two friends. We swapped winestories, spoke about our projects and he very proudly showed me his baby girl on his phone. He is truly an inspiration and his message of be grateful and execute on your plans, really resounds with me. Great to see you Gary! Italy awaits your Crushing! # TOP TRUST AGENT Chris Brogan, another of my mentors. Who is such an all round nice guy. He strips out the bs from social media and tools and gets back to basis on how to connect and build trust. His book Trust agents, also on the NY times bestseller list and in its third printing, is a must read. we got to chat hang out. My forthcoming chat with him here will give the best indicator of his approach to marketing your company online. # TOP PARTIES definitely the boat on the Siene with a view of Notre Dame and then the Mayors cocktail party at City hall hotel l'Ville, so beautiful with the enormous Christmas trees. TOP MEMORIES Walking to every party and event there was, from the romantic boat on the Siene to the VIP cocktail parties and coffee/beer night, we rode the metro and I even took a late night bus back to Gare du Nord with @Vascellari and then a taxi to my hotel. My off the wall, ludicrous interview with Paul Carr writer and card, on leaving London for LA and his list. . "The united nations of bloggers our cool team spend the evenings and late nights together @vascellari @clopin @ernohannink @icedsoul @tigertwo @hikari @MihaelaDraghici @liviacolare not one of us lived in the same country. we attended all the parties using the metro to crisscross Paris, walked all over the Marais and to our hotels, past the Louvre at night, very pretty, with all the twinkly lights. We made the VIP room ( A nightclub) too, but nobody could afford the 20 Euro drinks, so we left and had coffee on the way home laughing till our stomachs ached and getting very little sleep. the cool people at #leweb out in paris @wisequeen on Twitpic # TOP RESTAURANTS WE ate out with fun bunch each night.On the first night, between parties that we walked across town to get to, we found a lovely restaurant in San Michel with a friendly owner called Red and ate duck and mashed potatoes followed by a crem caramel that was delicious with fabulous Bordeux. last night we also ate a lovely meal in a Fish Resturant the lanes of Marais where a two course meal called a "formula" main course of filet, or Fiorentina steak, fish or whatever you wanted, was prefaced by a lovely starter, I had paté and red onion marmalade, cost just 13 Euro. # TOP HOTELS Admired the very elegant fashiondraped Hotel Pulitzer in rue du Fauborg, but couldnt stretch to that, so stayed in the arty bright place at Filles du Cavilere, nice area. The hotel d Ville just down the road from Rue Curial 3 at the le web venue was affordable, clean, comfortable and friendly with free wifi. Good tip for next year if you can get in. # TOP NO REPEAT the restaurant near the Marais called L'Etincelle 42 bis Rue de Rivoli, who robbed us, as small beer was 11 Euro and the food was overpriced and average. The sting came when Nancy discoved her phone had been nicked, and had to report it to the police. The crushing of my iphone in the street, it lasted till I got home and then crashed. Luckily I managed to download all the pics onto my apple just before it crashed. # TOP REASON TO ATTEND AGAIN NEXT YEAR I wouldnt miss it! A wonderful time of seeing old friends and meeting new ones whose blogs you've been reading for years, like Tara Hunt whose twitter handle is @Missrogue, Laura Fitton who blogs as @pistachio and Cate who blogs as @Cupcate. We expanded our minds and our inner circle of collaborators. #leweb09 @wisequeen @cupkate in press bloggers jungle on Twitpic Flicker stream of le Web 09 photos **Donna Jackson @Wisequeen Social Communications Strategist.

City events for the online community

 

There are now  so many events conferences, tweetups and dinners you can attend to network and collaborate at. Just dont expect free wifi at most conferences in Europe they cant seem to do it.

 

No Wifi

So how do you choose which ones  to attend?

 

I have a wall planner now where I pencil-in all the events that I find of interest and then they have to pass the test.

 

Is the content or speakers on my top ten list?

Is it in my city, or one I will visit for work?

Will it provide me an insiders view on the industry?

Can I contribute anything?

Can I find collaborators/contacts there on projects I'm working on?

Can I learn from other startups?

If I answer yes to these:

Then it makes the penned in  list, and  I plan my month, and then  year around these dates.

Here are latest London events   brought to us by our friends at Eventbrite

webmonday/iphone 3.0 beta testing app

I was at the webmonday in Zurich last night organised by amazee and held at the Amazee office in Technopark with some great presentations, firstly, The Blind Association online, this presention put us sighted people to shame, the presenter, Jürg Cathomas, whipped through vocalised commands like lightning and showed us how to navigate the web and how to develop for the blind and partially sighted. The question session was lively and really interesting, great eye-opener for all of us. Also on the bill was new Soc Media start up Minsh, who are doing something "fishy" with twitter, watch this space. My twitter page came up, and yes I got a minsh preview of me as an angelic white fish... Ok, the usual networking took place with some really interesting techies and developers and then at the end of this evening, I met with a developer to discuss platform dev but we spoke about this iphone cut and paste option You can't get us away from talking about new iphone apps. And now Skype for iphone Woot! follow me on twitter Got something to say? a question maybe? leave us a comment Donna Jackson Social Communications Specialist Wisequeen [gallery]

Do you poken.com ?

Those of you who follow my blog and my Swiss Tech posts will have heard of the gadget I've written on often POKEN, the social media networking tool thats set to take the world by storm. I've been blogging on founder Stéphane Doutriaux and the Poken team since they launched in Laussane in 2008. Poken's recent expansion to UK, Italy, and now the US (as it was the most talked about device at Austin SXSW) means people will be pokening each other everywhere. The Poken video will tell you how to highfive people and get rid of all those business cards on your desk that you can't remember where you got,or who they belong to. Just buy a poken a bee, panda, monster or skull and start smart networking.

Click on  the firebox.com button on the right in the sidebar and you can buy a single poken and have it shipped, or contact me by email for bulk orders or conferences.

Then register online and take your contacts with you wherever you go. The corporate version will be released soon, a slick USB pen size. The Poken conference badge was launched at #LIFT09 and will soon make interactive conference badges the smart choice. So do you Poken? Interview with Stéphane Doutriaux

Twitter tips for twits

Most of us have heard of, or use twitter right? Wrong! most don't, or at least not effectively. This social media, micro-blogging site, where you can send quick messages, links, and info to those who follow your updates, can be a lifeline to networking and building an internet presence. I joined recently, and as a follow on to my post on social etiquette golden rules Here are some tips that I have to offer so far, as a relative newcomer. Say who you are by including your name. Calling yourself sprogit may work as an enigmatic tease on a dating site, but this isn't it. Log in each day, respond to those who have started following you, if you agree. Spend half an hour twice a day and then get off. You have a life don't you? Don't just give impersonal updates, have short conversations with those who post on your subject or area. Contribute something useful to the social space. Don't spam other twitterers with a hard sell, this is not a place to sell your product it's a place to socialise. Don't spend all day talking about your children and the chocolate cake they have smushed all over their faces. For you cute yes, for everyone else - not as cute. Be a mentor to someone and receive mentoring from someone in your area of interest, that's powerful. Don't blather on with political messages 24 /7, angry and bitter is what you become. Politicians have campaign managers for that, save your energy to make your business better. Here's a post on the types of social media users Be a happy twit! Have something to say ? send us a comment. Wisequeen Donna Jackson Social communications specialist
