I spoke with Loic a short while ago. I have been concerned about Les Blogs and coming to Paris with my wife during times of strife. I was also concerned that the recent events might hurt attendance where Robert and I will share a keynote for the first time ever.
He assures me that there are simply no security problems in central Paris and there is a security force of 2000 policemen to ensure it remains that way, with extra details near the more famous landmarks. He also tells me that the number of registration is past 200 and growing.
Robert and I are juiced. We are actually meeting to discuss what we will say and do and to plan it out. For Robert and I, this is unheard of preparation. But when all is said and done, we will always have Paris.
