Annick Morel, My Parisian Cyberguide

Annick turned me onto the online culture in Paris a few years ago. It was her boyfriend who let me watch over his shoulder while he worked his job as a Minitel chat shill. Together with Lionel Lumbroso she co-translated Virtual Reality and turned me onto France Telecom execs, messageries rose operators, rare and struggling virtual communitarians, online shills for sex chat, when I was researching The Virtual Community. Like Lionel, Annick makes her living as a translator. If you need a technology-savvy traducteur francais contact
