Business Insider’s Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry takes a rather dim view of this story in yesterday’s La Tribune, sarcastically concluding that “We don’t see how anything can go wrong with this. Stimulus funds, consortia, huge corporations going out of their core competencies, French government and union meddling and big buzzwords like cloud computing.” The French government certainly does appear more willing than most to put the state’s muscle behind big projects, especially when it feels that the country’s cultural values are threatened by anglophone (mostly American, these days) dominance over markets. In this case, though, the idea may have some merit. A national need, combined with perfectly respectable competencies inside some of the country’s biggest companies? Gobry is certainly right that plenty could go wrong, but this project deserves watching as it takes shape.
