French Mashup Traffic

Once again, Europe's interest in mashups was apparent at ProgrammableWeb as there's been a lot of international visitors here recently, this time courtesy of "Web 2.0: un site pour geeks et pour curieux".

There haven't been many French mashups here so far. Perhaps more will appear this year since maps are the major source of mashups for now and the major US-based mapping services are starting to give better European support.
