Sometimes I think that human relationships are just like tcp connections. Sometimes they suddenly close and someone has to reconnect. Sometimes no matter the retries, the connection is just refused.
Religion is so far better than computing. If only we had some kind of prophet too, at least we would know what to do in advance. Seriously.

Job inquiry : software prophet.
In this article I will show you what’s missing in the way we process digital content and what we could do to improve that with the concept of “Infometer”. It is the rationale behind the Infometer chrome extension that I also introduce here as an illustration of this concept. Continue reading
So I am a heavy reader. My best rate is one book per week. I read mostly practical books that make me learn something and sometimes novels.

It’s so insane but so poetic at the same time, isn’t it? I never get tired of discussing with developers especially after two beers, when the darkest secrets of software development are unleashed (so many stories to be told here).

Where are you going?! It’s not as bad as it sounds !
Tonight I went to visit Mozilla with 2 devs friends, we ate sushi and stuff. So much better than the pizza and beer combo traditionally fed to developers. Also, the web should be open and free to everyone, the web is yours. Yum, thank you Mozilla.
Sometimes the devworld is just as dramatic as a Greek tragedy.
