A small joke on the briefs anti-wave to the men in order to protect the genitals of the electromagnetic waves produced by the phones has caused a certain buzz.
” To support the French Tech, it was necessary to overthrow the table “, referred to the secretary of State of the Digital and Innovation, in an interview in Paris just before his departure for Las Vegas. “A young person in France says he wants to create his own company. This cultural revolution, it is the left that has done this. “
accompanying Michel Sapin, Axelle Lemaire paid a visit to start-up companies such as BeWell Connect, SimForHealth, Famoco, but also the booths of groups such as Dassault Systems or The Position.

In the series of the professional organizations on the spot, Pierre Gattaz, President of MEDEF, has also made the trip to Las Vegas. But it is hard to find a photo on which we find the members of the government at his side.
The agreement appeared to be more cordial in 2014 with the MEDEF at the genesis of the program, the French Tech when Fleur Pellerin was in charge of the portfolio of the digital Economy.
This edition 2017 of the ces in Las Vegas was also a first for Sébastien Soriano to the presidency of the ARCEP. Unlike his predecessor, he took the habit of coming in large conventions, high-tech.
It was also an opportunity to visit the stand of The Post in full transformation to digital. A domain is just as interesting in the light of the regulatory functions in the postal sector assigned to ARCEP.
