BBWF: What a Riot!

11:10 AM -- The Broadband World Forum 2010 show opens its doors next week in Paris, where, during the past few days, cars have been torched and police attacked by demonstrators angry at proposed financial reforms. Say what you like about the French -- they know how to put on a good protest!

It's uncertain quite what the show's attendees will find en route to the CNIT center in La Defense, the French capital's business district, but once they get there they'll find EuroBlog on the show floor, hunting down the best coffee, sniffing out the nearest vino collapso, trawling for gossip, and checking out the latest industry developments. Engaging in an aggressive fashion with the local gendarmes is not on the agenda, though.

Check out our pre-show, in situ, and post-show coverage of the event (including picture stories and video reports) at our Broadband World Forum Show Site, which is now open for business.

In the meantime, here's a quick take on The Future of Broadband.
