Always Present: the Bibliothèque Nationale

If I haven't been mentioning the Bibliothèque Nationale often lately, it is because they've changed the form of the material sent to me. It is too much to read now. Just so we'll know nobody has forgotten anything, you can take a look at the Bibliothèque Nationale's Web site, which has expanded considerably since I last checked it.

While Sabine Zlatin is at the BNF, there is a Homage to the Lady of Izieu, in conjunction with the Musée-Mémorial des Enfants d'Izieu. See the exhibition: 'Garde-le Toujours' - Lettres et dessins des enfants d'Izieu, from 1943-44. Worth a look.

Coming Soon: 18th Salon du Livre

Salon du LivreAs in past years, this year's Salon du Livre has its own Web site and it is up and running already. I am getting weekly blasts of press-releases from the organizers, but nobody thought to include the Web URL and it took me a good while to find it. I should have looked at last year's Metropole.

This salon takes place from Friday, 20. March until Wednesday, 25. March. Monday, 23. March, is reserved for professionals. Location: at Paris-Expo - Porte de Versailles, in Hall One - all of it.

Some Web URLs

I have been doing some surfing. It is not my favorite activity, but I usually do a bit of it each week - to find out if there's anything out there worth seeing or reading. Usually there are some Java script error messages, and I don't know what I'm supposed to do with them; but one thing I won't do, is pass them on to you.

Imagina 98 is something special, but I can't remember exactly what it is right now.

Regional weirdness is featured on the Miossec Web site, which contains all you ever wanted to know about the deeper meaning of 'ploucs.' This is not just for Ploucs themselves, and not just Breton-rock craziness and lunacy and Plouc boosterism, there's more to it. If 'plouc' has you thrown, you can always look it up at Breizhoo which is to Bretons what Yahoo! is to the rest of us.

Campus Voice has info about European faculties, exchange programs, discussion forums, professional orientation and European employment offers - presumably for students. This is where you should look before writing to me to ask to work on this magazine. After you look at 'Campus Voice,' write to me.

12th Prix Ars Electronica 98 offers 18 prizes, for artists, creators and multimedia designers. This is put on by the annual Austrian Festival of Electronic Arts; deadline for entries is 30. April. Austrian State Radio - ORF - is the organizer. Unesco is participating with the 'Prix Unesco Web,' which also involves cash for the two top finishers.

Here is another site about which I've forgotten the details. Try Rebellion or something, or maybe it was anarchy - I have it marked 'OK' so it must have been something interesting for a minute of two.

This Was Metropole One Year Ago:

Issue 2.10 - 10. March 1997 featured the columns - Café Metropole - 'Is Your Utrillo Real?' andcount down Eiffel Tower 'Au Bistro' had - 'The Land of Unfat
Is In Southern France.' The articles in the issue were 'At the 'Campagne à Paris,' and 'Sort of Circuling the 'Butte' Montmartre.' Plus a special 'Coming Event:' The 17th Annual Salon du Livre. There were two 'Posters of the Week' and Ric's Cartoon of the Week was named 'The Heights of Montmartre.'

The Tour Eiffel Countdown to 31. December 1999:

Only 663 days left to go.
