Join the Social Media Clubhouse on Tuesday, December 7th, where we will be livestreaming from Le Web in Paris, France. We have partnered with Read Write Web and af83 Media, to stream an afternoon of interviews featuring Matt Mullenweg (WordPress), Patrick Chanezon (Google), Tara Hunt (The Whuffie Factor), Pierre Bellanger (Skyrock), Jeremiah Owyang (Altimeter Group), Robert Scoble (Rackspace), and Ariel Garten (Interaxon) to name a few.

Two studios; one will have one on one interviews, and in the other there will be a “talkshow” marathon where bloggers, journalists and our guests will talk about innovation, social media and other digital related topics. All discussions will be in English, broadcast live through Social Media Club’s channel on uStream from 6am-11am EDT.

Thanks to the efforts of Webcastory, HD quality videos of each interview will be available online following the event, and may be downloaded for free via the Creative Commons license.
