Meeting Loic Le Meur at Picnic 08


This year I had for second time the opportunity to attend PICNIC, the cross-media conference held in Amsterdam's Westergasfabriek. The people of ON i ON ComunicaciĆ³n & Infonomia TV made possible for me to enjoy good presentations and meet interesting people (thanks Doris, Victor, & Silvia!) So, I had a chat with Loic Le Meur from Seesmic, and it was great!

I've got to know about Loic when he was starting Seesmic and decided to videoblog the entrepreneurial process of starting up a new media company on a series called Seesmic du Jour. Found inspiring the personal approach to the videoseries and how the brand connects with its users and general audience. I'm an ocasional user of Seesmic video service, however, due to Seesmic de Jour I feel great sympathy for a start-up that I saw grow during its firsts months of development.

Loic, thanks for the conversation, and the t-shirts (are fantastic!). It was great meeting you.
