A winemaker at Paris Web – Un Americain à Paris

I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at Paris Web 2010 in mid-October.  We’ll be talking about my experiences with coming to the south of France as an outsider and how I simultaneously used the Internet to highlight that difference (separate myself intentionally from other winemakers) and also to integrate myself (truly becoming part of the winemaking community in the Languedoc).

On a related note, this presentation will also discuss the huge differences between how Parisians use the Internet and how country bumpkins like me use the Internet.  This is related to a Palate Press article that will be published soon on how wineries have had trouble incorporating a lot of web 2.0 technology because of our rural settings.

The presentation will also allude to various bits of pop culture like Louise Hurren’s Outsider Tasting, the Survive France Network, Dave Sedaris, David Lebovitz, and Love That Languedoc (naturally).

I’m so excited. My biggest, most serious audience since my long lost courtroom days (I wasn’t on the stand, for those who think the worst of me. :D)

    Good for you! Do you know which day you will be speaking on?

  5. Iris Says:

    Hope, you’ll publish your contribution also in a written version – one of the main differences between Parisians and country bumpkins (like the expression:-)!) as is in our place at Lisson is the data-rate of our Internet-Connection – already better then in the old modem times, but still very bumpy and really no pleasure for videos on blogs and websites…

    @Lousie, I’m not sure the day yet. 14th or 15th.

    @Iris, I will try to convince mom to transcribe the video, or at least upload a power point or something. But I have a very hard time writing in French. ;)

  7. Iris Says:

    If you need a hand to translate:-))…

    aw, thank you! I’ll keep that in mind. This presentation will actually be in French. But it’s easier to speak it than to spell it, y’know? :D
