Thanks for that, Elizabeth. I already knew about Americans who think the French are snooty, but I didn't realize that attitude had spread to other Euros. Personally, I think the French have a lot to be snooty about: great food, wine, fashion, art, some great movies, general elegance, a beautiful language, a beautiful countryside...

Well, having lived in Europe for almost four years, I can tell you that yes, it is in part jealousy, but there is also an attitude in general that some French people have (not all) that can be a bit snooty and entitled, without consideration for other people. Not all, of course--I don't want to make a gross generalization! But that's the perception and an explanation for why other Euros (and some Americans) may have a negative attitude toward them. But I suppose there are some people who can find something not to like about just about anyone and anything! Great art and now great art and technology is coming out of France, and that's pretty cool in my opinion. :)

I've heard about Europeans who don't admire the French, but I don't really understand why. I guess jealousy makes sense.

Haha, yes, well despite their ease with glamor, a lot of people in Europe don't share your enthusiasm for the French--on the contrary! But it's probably just a bit of jealousy, really. ;)

Haha, yes, Ann, Paris has a way of doing that to you. I think it's because whenever you go there you sort of start trying to imitate the effortless style of the French women so it's like elegance through osmosis...it just rubs off on you! The French just can't help themselves. So I expect at some point that we'll see more beautiful combinations of technology and art coming out of our friends there like this 3D dance performance, and I look forward to it.

Elizabeth, you gave me a chuckle. A friend of mine who's a well-known technology journalist moved to Paris for awhile and within a year or less, she started looking so French when she came back to the States! Always, all the time--so elegant. So apparently it can be acquired. I remember I even *felt* more elegant when I was in Paris many years ago.

Agree, Ann, the French do sort of have a way of incorporating beauty into anything, especially when it's unconventional or not atypical. I have a French friend here in Portugal who looks more elegant out walking dogs than I do when I go out to dinner! ;)

Its good that with the help of these different designs, the changes have been made in the dance performance.

It is breathtaking how two distinctive things (3D elements and dance) are integrated to give such a spectacular performance. It is amazing how the technology brings surprises to the users each and every time it is used. It is with no doubt that the creativity of the 3D technology will only get better with time.
