LeWeb09, early morning kickoff
Here I am, as I wrote earlier I was really looking forward to sketch on LeWeb09. And here I am. The Line up is looking promising and we have wifi and it is nice and warm. Loic and Geraldine Lemeur opened the Two day conference this morning with their introduction, announcing that this year is again bigger than last year. Looking good sofar.
First opening chat with Jack Dorsey who showed of his new and interesting mobile service with which you can put on a “swiper” on your mobile to be able to swipe Credit Cards. His service ‘Square’ should roll out early 2010 for everyone to use ( pay and sell) via mobile. The question of how much the ‘swiper’ would cost the public was answered with a surprising -‘nothing’! Of course the free dongel should stimulate use of the service. The rest of the morning continues to be all about (iPhone) apps and their potential.
