It's seriously slow today, so you get stories about registration for French trade shows. Registration for Paris GDC is now open here. If you sign up before May 14 you get a discount. Only "103 days left", says the site. We have no idea if this is going to be any good, but even if it isn't you should blag a trip to France from your boss. Paris is pretty in the summer.
The event runs from June 23-24.
