How you can watch Europe’s largest internet event without paying a cent

LeWeb has partnered with video streaming company Ustream to offer consumers the ability to watch a live stream of Europe's biggest technology event broadcast on the internet.

LeWeb is the biggest internet event in the European calendar, bringing together speakers, entrepreneurs, investors, the media, and technology buffs to discuss a "new web."

Internet users will be able to watch LeWeb highlights in real-time on December 9 and 10 by typing http://www.ustream.tv/channel/le-web-main-stage into the URL box at the top of their web browsers.

Those equipped with an iPhone or Android-powered phone will also be able to watch the event live on their device using Ustream's viewing application. Both versions of Ustream's application can be downloaded from their respective mobile application stores (Apple's App store and Google's Android Market).

People that like to make their fingers do the talking can see all the latest news on LeWeb's Twitter page, http://twitter.com/LeWeb.

Event organizers and participants will be answering questions posted on the microblogging site during the event. To get your question answered, log onto your Twitter account and ask your question in 140 characters or less. Make sure you include the term, "#leweb" in your tweet.

LeWeb is also posting the latest news, photos, statistics and updates to their Facebook page that can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/leweb.

Vist their Facebook page to find quirky tidbits of information such as, "12 km of networking cables have been specially set up for leweb 2009 connected to 1gb dedicated fiber optics Internet" or "outside temperature in Paris expected around 10-15 degrees C that is 15 more than last year and we have much more heat in the room too."
