Ah, Paris. I just got back from spending 4 wonderful days there. Two of the days were spent at the Le Web 3 conference, which I enjoyed, and I got to spend two days (as well as the four evenings) roaming Paris and photographing its beauty.

I'll post some of my favorite shots over the next few days. This one was a pleasant surprise - I had no idea that a number of kids carousels were located just across the street from the Eiffel Tower, making for an interesting contrast. You can also see the spotlight of the Tower going across the top of the photo as well as the hourly sparkling lights that only flash for a few minutes to mark each hour.

Saturday Photowalk in Paris

So it is decided! We'll all meet up at Musee Picasso at 1PM, where the kind Estelle is organizing the walk and "Laissez passer" - so please leave a comment here if you're coming so she can prepare!

Really looking forward to it!

By the way, go listen to Nicole Simon's interview in preparation for the conference...

Technorati named 2007 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum, Profiled in Time Magazine

Today was a pretty busy day! Technorati was selected by the World Economic Forum (yeah, the one that meets in Davos, Switzerland every year!) as a Technology Pioneer. I was blown away by this, as it is a pretty high honor - only 47 companies worldwide were selected, and it means that I'll be heading for Davos early next year for the conference.

I'm eager to learn more about what the actual conference is like and to meet up with other folks who are going, so drop me a line or leave a comment below if you want to meet up there, or if you are a Swiss local interested in meeting up.

The list of Technology Innovators is on the WEF site, and they put up a video of me answering some questions about Technorati.

Then to boot, Technorati was profiled in Time Magazine, as part of their Global Business Special Section! The online version of the article doesn't have the picture that went in the print magazine, so I've got a request in to the Time Magazine folks to get a copy of the picture up on the web, when I have more info, I'll put it up.

Going to Paris - Photowalk anyone?

I'm heading to Paris for Le Web 3, and I'm going to be arriving on Saturday, December 9th, which gives me 2 days before the conference starts to get in some sightseeing. Anyone up for a meeting/get-together and photowalk on Saturday afternoon the 9th or on Sunday the 10th? I've only been to Paris once before, and I fell in love with the beautiful city. I must admit however that I haven't seen much of it.

I am an avid photographer, so I'm really looking for beautiful places, especially hidden gems that only the locals know about...

Leave a comment here or drop me an email at dsifry AT technorati DOT com. I'll be staying at the Sofitel Paris Porte de Sevres near the conference...

Here's a shot from my last trip to Paris:
