Oh non! Ce programme était génial pour présenter un album photo :'-(

Franklin, it has been a pleasure for me to brainstorm around Zoomorama with you and your team. I know you had a real vision, and even more importantly, that Zoomorama was truly an innovative company. Yet, as what sometimes happens with forward-thinking companies, they may show up too early. The Darty experience, and working with people who are not fancy by any means, gave the practical proof that what you had in mind was relevant and that you offered something that people need. The unknown, though, was the lead time between the moment early adopters could jump on board and the time regular companies would be able to understand that they had to move - and build up a gratifying experience for their users. Also, and sorry to have to say this, starting in France may not have been ideal. Small market with sometimes, unfortunately, somewhat entrenched views on how things ought to be.

Thank you also to you for being who you are, just a remarkable person and a wonderful friend.

Bonjour Anne-Céline,

C'est avec beaucoup de tristesse que j'apprends votre cessation d'activité. Le concept que vous avez initialisé est vraiment superbe. Et je ne doute pas que la flamme reprendra un jour ou l'autre, ici ou ailleurs. Il est toujours difficile d'être pionniers, mais il faut savoir renaître de ses cendres, relever la tête, repartir.

Je vous adresse à tous mes salutations amicales, et souhaite avoir le plaisir de vous retrouver dans des circonstances moins sombres.
