Outriders at LeWeb conference
Last week saw the LeWeb conference take place at Westminster Hall. This meant that all sorts of tech leaders, innovators and startup companies from around the world were in attendance, so I went along to meet a few of them who you can hear from on the podcast.
Naturally there were a lot of start-up companies at the conference and it seemed that there was a trend in the types of products and apps they were creating.
It seems that the UK is holding its own for tech and entrepreneurs too.
I asked him more about the roots of Tech City which seemed to grow out of an area that was already dubbed Silicon Roundabout.
Of course an event like LeWeb draws the big names in the tech world too.
Bradley Horowitz, VP of product for Google Plus was at the event talking about a new partnership.
The progress of Google Plus shows that the web has really changed from just input and finding data, to sharing or 'the social web' as many folk will call it. But we are also seeing a change online as the web becomes a media-rich place. You'll notice that as we hope for better bandwidth, there is more video available.
I won't be with you next week with Outriders, but rest assured, we'll be back the week after.
Back in two weeks!
