Le Web becomes Le Sauna

54

PARIS (Dec 9, 2008) In a shocking move hours ahead of his annual gathering of digerati in Europe was due to begin, blogger and entrepreneur Loic Le Meur announced he has changed business plan and would turn his Le Web conference into Le Sauna.

The move was immediately hailed by the Finnish Sauna Society as a forward-looking take on Social Media.

“For more than a thousand years we Finns have understood that the Sauna was the world’s first Social Media,” said Suomi Korhonen, an avid Sauna goer. “People get hot under the collar about Facebook and Twitter, but things really do heat up in a fine Finnish Sauna.”

European entrepreneurs and Silicon Valley hotshots will be sweating it out in a genuine Finnish sauna overseen by a genuine Finnish sauna master. (More on the video)

  11. As an entrepreneur you always have to be re-inventing new ideas and putting spins on things to keep life fulfilling and entertaining. This is exactly what Loic Le Mur has done here and it has worked perfectly for a PR stunt.

  16. Does Le Sauna have provision for real time blogging? To be truly a social media event in the spirit of Le Web there must be a ruggedized PC available inside with Internet access. Instantaneous sauna impressions can then be shared with the World!.

    Natural aging. Even if you put Laptop Battery away and never use it, Dell xps m1530 battery will die one day. Let me explain things a little bit more. You have to understand that, it doesn’t matter how good you care about your , it will lose performance and one day it will die. Of course, your computer battery exploits will slow the process of aging of your replacement laptop battery. In warmer environments, while the laptop is used and your battery gets warm, your battery will drain energy quicker. For this reason, the number one rule is: Keep your notebook batteries cool.

  28. As an anti-aging physician I can attest to the life-enhancing properties of Le Sauna.

    Clinical studies of Le Web are as yet inconclusive … 😉
