I'll be in Paris for the max developers workshop. 14th - 18th ( longer if I get wander lust)
I know I'll be blown away by Paris but I don't really have any personal connection or knowledge beyond the typical. I hear it's got a good sewer system.
Something tells me the parisians on this list might have some near-Ircam hotel/food suggestions. If anyone wants to hang out and wax max, get dinner, hit a show, eat food I'm in. I'm so pitifully unprepared that culture shock might turn into culture electrocution.
