Dominique Piotet is the President and CEO of L’Atelier North America and host of a weekly radio tech watch for the French business station, Radio BFM. Francis Pisani, also based in the Bay Area, covers technology for some of Europe’s largest newspapers, including Le Monde and Spain’s el Pais.

How can you not love a tech book that references Rimbaud in its title?

@ Webb-
Thank you for the comment. An English translation is on its way :) Your patience is greatly appreciated.

Let me first acknowledge your literary reference to Rimbaud and thank you for including an enlightening (and most enjoyable) link to the life and poetry of Rimbaud within your article announcing the availability of "How the Web is Changing the World: Alchemy of the Multitudes."

I would like to respectfully suggest that the authors of "How the Web...," Piotet and Pisani, consider pursuing an English translation of their tech book for those of us whose reading ability in French does not allow for a full comprehension. Nevertheless, thank you to L'Atelier and the authors for allowing online publication of their great introduction to Web 2.0 practices.
