In Paris

I am in Paris for an ISNI Board meeting. Except it’s not quite Paris – it’s just outside in Place de la Defense. I am at the Hilton (cue Paris Hilton jokes), directly across from two shopping malls.

This area is dedicated to commerce. It’s all glass and concrete. This is the view from my hotel room window.

The point of pride here is this square arch:

Around the bend is a sculpture of a ginormous thumb, which I can’t help but feel is a monument to swiping your iPhone:
