first reactions to my Cybook-for-a-week over here. just in french for the moment (sorry !) but tomorrow i'll make an english version, and also add some photos to show the comparison with my eb1150.

also some details of my conversation with Pauline from Bookeen.

teaser : Pauline thinks apéros with Bookeen are a great idea, and we should do more. and, a new firmware is currently in developpment.

Ha ha... At my office (we are a vertical/horizontal software vendor) we have a saying, "Shipping is a feature"... usually the most important one to the customer!

Vertical software is written for a specific industry. In my groups case we have two verticals... one is designed for Property management... you know, keeping track of leases, renters, etc. The second vertical is construction for companies that build houses and such.

Horizontal software is generic enough for all industries. In our case this would be our Payroll/HR software... to keep track of employees, cut pay checks, etc.

I see your plan; Keep them answering questions all night, in order to distract them, then walk out with your CyBook, having them think that it was yours and not a loaner. Clever!

added to the list !! i'll send them to the thread here for info though, since i don't really feel qualified to explain that. i can just say there will be an MR contingent there, and they can get details here, right ?

well, you have several choices to make you feel better :
1. come to the apéro.
2. come to the next apéro (there will be more, trust me)
3. organise your own apéro.
4. all of the above.

Don't be too concerned about getting all of your questions answered at the first one. This is supposed to be a friendly informal get together over drinks. (And besides, if you wait till folks are suitably lubricated, you may get more forthcoming answers )

As you mention, there will be more, and I believe Pauline from Bookeen thought more would be a good idea. Find out from the folks present how often they might be up for it, and plan future events accordingly.

thanks for saying that. i have been delegated on the french thread as the official question-asker for all the people who can't come, so you see they aren't *all* my questions (some are...), but i'm starting to get worried that it will turn into the spanish inquisition. and you know, nobody expects the spanish inquisition, at an apéro...

you're right, the best plan is to get them good and drunk, then they will agree to anything. "folders ? sure !"

yes, pauline for one is very enthusiastic, which is great, and a lot of people are not available for this one and are disappointed to miss it. i will ask about the frequency. maybe we could plan the next one for october ; august is a slow month in paris, a lot of people are on holiday and a lot of places are closed, and then september is often quite hectic because it's back to work / school after the holidays. so october might be a good time. and, hopefully that leaves plenty of time for people to make plans. or maybe it should be later, so people have even more time to plan ?

Frankly, I agree. You don't want to scare them off. Although you could probably turn most of the specific questions into more general topics. instead of ten questions on navigation ask 1, Can you tell me anything about future plans for navigating the library? I'm sure additional questions will arise in the discussion naturally.
