Starting from 17th September, on behalf of TechNode, I will be in SF and join the Orange Blogger Bus Tour. A big thanks for Orange Silicon Valley  (the Silicon Valley arm of France Telecom-Orange), together with an elite team of bloggers from around the world, we will spend a week in the Bay Area visiting local companies and startups. And to start with, on behalf of Orange Silicon Valley, I’d love to invite all tech bloggers to attend Blogger Day event on 17th.

The following announcement is originally posted on Live Orange Blog.

On September 17th, Orange Silicon Valley are hosting an exclusive gathering of local and international tech bloggers in San Francisco to ponder about technological innovation.

eCairn and Orange Silicon Valley (the Silicon Valley arm of France Telecom-Orange, one of the world’s leading telecoms with over 170,000 employees worldwide) have worked hand in hand to enable this congregating of tech enthusiasts and experts to take place in the world capital of innovation.

These men and women from around the world will explore cutting edge technologies and consider the following question:

Where will innovation in Silicon Valley come from and how will it disrupt everyday life as we know it?

Consumer tech demos from Orange Silicon Valley will be followed by discussions about innovation, talent acquisition and data infrastructure as it applies to Silicon Valley. This event will also enable bloggers from the Bay Area to share thoughts with their counterparts from France, UK, Australia, China, and Finland.

These international bloggers are all part of the Orange Blogger Bus Tour, an elite team of bloggers from around the world who will be spending a week in the Bay Area to find out how the Valley functions, and meet with companies and start-ups to get an idea of where innovation is heading in the near future.

If you are a blogger in Silicon Valley or San Francisco and you want to join in to share your thoughts about innovation and find out what Orange Silicon Valley are up to, then register now (all registrations pending validation by the organizers)!
