Not far from Beaubourg in a steamy Internet cafe; saw great march; train journey this AM took 90 minutes, people do a good job of routing around striking line, since info is posted on Internet. People seem sympathetic to strikers; see this poll for example.

Spent the metroride talking with friend about innovation inside places like France Telecom; he does consulting there: like selling balloon rides to agorophobes. Wandered into a France Telcom boutique at lunch and waited in line ‘à mintes for service. Paid 30 Euros for phone number and 10 minutes of calling time; then paid 3 euro for 30 minutes of Internet. Same in UK would cost 30 Euro for 30 minutes and 1.5 euros for an hour.

Internet will bring deflation to Europe.
