Rotten Orange

Le Web 3 is a conference about the future of the web, yet its connectivity provided by event sponsor Orange was something that clearly belongs to our (remote) past... Useless and unstable WiFi network, theoretical bandwidth infinitely larger than effective bandwidth when luck struck and we were able to connect... Useless. Which points out the importance of quality control or else a brand gets the opposite effect than the one expected.


  1. Totally agree. I thought I could get away from my Orange nightmare (http://blogs.gsl.com/dougclinton/2006/12/06/orange-broadband-a-bad-joke/) by coming to Paris, but I was wrong.

  2. It does certainly seem so for a second day in a row... And what should we say about being hacked by French politicians?
