A new online community is kicking-off: FrenchNetwork.org

Welcome to FrenchNetwork.org, a portal for all French people living abroad!

The concept is new and pretty simple: several million frogs currently and constantly live all around the world. We call them "Les Expats". They are most of the time wealthier than the average Frenchman, rather open-minded, and..terribly alone - at least in the beginning of their stay.

Ilan Abehassera, Nathanael Cohen and Jerôme Gorges, three very dynamic French (Internet , but not exclusively) entrepreneurs living in Miami, Florida, spotted the opportunity and opened for the "Expat" crowd a community portal. FrenchNetwork.org´s a meeting and networking place as well as an ads marketplace. And though only a Beta version, FrenchNetwork.org is already a big and growing success! A newer, final release of the website is to be launched soon, and more communities are being targeted for future developments (ItalianNetwork, GayNetwork, JewishNetwork, etc.). I´ll keep IT Addict readership posted of the new developments of the FrenchNetwork.org adventure!


One very last thing: the last time Ilan, Nathanael and I met, we went to a crazy place in South Beach, Miami. If you want to have some fun, I highly recommend you to take a look at Taverna Opa - a greek restaurant where people dance on tables when dessert/coffee time comes (their cheap Ouzo helps a lot too - but watch out the check, they often charge for twice what you´ve ordered). We came out so drunk that we thought there could be a market for an AlwaysDrunkGuysNetwork.org));
