  I’ve been only once to Baltimore, just spent a few hours there. It was in November 1998, I had been living in the US for just about four months. We had a small road trip with a few French friends and coworkers. Sure, I can’t really have an opinion of the […]

One thing I intend to talk about on this blog is… blogging… Worry not, it won’t be a “blog about blogging” – I’m not geek enough for that – but I think that it won’t hurt to occasionally share my experience and experiments in that field. You know, share stuff, […]

  Yeah, this site has barely been launched, its blog has only one post (well, two with this one) and already a survey. Apparently I’m wasting no time. To get started I simply have one question: What would you like to see (or not see) in this blog? Yes, that’s […]
