MR Reader Meetup in Paris on Friday, July 18th

I am happy to announce our very first MobileRead reader meetup -- right in the heart of Paris. Thanks to Zelda who has been planning the meetup! Tebaldo is already coming, and so is MobileRead editor and Feedbooks mastermind Hadrien.

Here's the scoop:

Friday, July 18th @ 7pm

La Fontaine
33 Rue Juliette Dodu
75010 Paris
(01 424 536 27‎)

Google Maps

Please tell us that you're thinking about coming, or our egos will be mercilessly permanently wounded, ok? And prepare for an insane amount of geekery!

I tried to get driving directions from Google Maps, but it told me it couldn't calculate them. Hmmm?

I am thinking of coming, but sadly that is about as far as I will get.

Paris in July with my Sony 505!

It is such a good dream.

INSANE amount of geekery !!! absolutely. and he's right about the wounded egos as well. sheesh.

just so you know, the little arrow on the google map is not *quite* accurate (which is a crushing disappointment : google maps, fallible ???? what ????). the bar is actually on the corner of the rue Juliette Dodu and the rue de la Grange aux Belles (this corner is visible on the map. it's only 3 doors further). but if you can find the place marked by the arrow, i'm sure you can find the bar as well.

(of course, i won't tell you that the only reason i want to organise this is purely self-interested... i just cannot wait any longer to see e-ink in person. and besides whatever different liseuses will accompany the MR members, tebaldo works on e-ink projects and has many prototypes to show off...)

I was wondering why you were having a meeting in the middle of a street. True, the map does not show any cars driving on it, but those crazy foreign drivers may just make the decision...

I am thinking very strongly about making an appearance. Unfortunately, my Mapquest directions tells me to swim across the Atlantic, and I get such terrible swimmers ear...

I can't believe it, I'll actually be in Paris that day (but with a tour group).
Maybe we can do a little side trip...

I passed your hometown very closely last sunday, Alex. But I think I won't be able to make another trip next weekend.

well, i was thinking of an apéro, so around 7 in the evening. so people have time to get there, after work. but other suggestions would be fine. it could be earlier / later than that. i'll add the time to the french thread and see what people say. nikopass signed up just to say he will be coming with a friend ! it was his first post ! we feel honored...

i think you should. the majority of you seem to be in texas already, so it shouldn't be too hard.

ok, but the rule is, everyone has to bring a liseuse !! otherwise we don't let you have any drinks.

but then we might have to find a new bar. la Fontaine is pretty small.
