While waiting at the Chicago airport for my flight to Paris, France, I decided to slip in my first official post of my adventure. I am honored and excited to be joining an amazing group of bloggers participating in Traveling Geeks Paris.
Eliane Fiolet and Renee Blodgett have been working hard with Co-Organizer Phil Jeudy to make this trip come together. Sky Schuyler, CTO, and two web developers built the infrastructure of the Traveling Geeks website and social media channels.
The Traveling Geeks include: Beth Blecherman, Renee Blodgett, Matthew Buckland, Amanda Coolong, Kim-Mai Cutler, Cyrille de Lasteyrie, Olivier Ezratty, Eliane Fiolet, Tom Foremski, Phil Jeudy, Frederic Lardinois, Sky Schuyler, Robert Scoble, Rodrigo Sepulveda Schulz, David Spark, Ewan Spence, Jerome Tranié, and Robin Wauters.
I purchased the 200MB International data plan for my BlackBerry – so I hope to use Twitter while I am in Paris and not bust my limit! We have WiFi at the hotel in Paris to use, but knowing the geek level of the group I feel confident that we will search out every Wi-Fi location in Paris while we are there. More excitement to come..
Here is more information about Traveling Geeks I found by reading Eliane Fiolet’s post on Traveling Geeks:
“Ubergizmo is a media partner of the tour, and you have surely
noticed the banner we have been running for a few weeks. Thanks to our
sponsors France Telecom Orange, Pearltrees, Answers.com , Invest in France Agency, Parrot SA and Microsoft BizSpark for making this trip possible.
