Suggested reading

little_brother_cover_small1I’ve just finished reading Little Brother, by Cory Doctorow. Really one of my favorite books by one of my favorite authors.

It’s an eye-opening story about taking control of the technology, surveillance, personal freedoms in the post-911 world and, last but not least, teen angst. Made me wish I was 20 years younger. Or that my daughters were 10 years older – so I could make them read it.

I really liked it a lot, and apart from the fact that I can’t stop telling everyone I know about it, it inspired me to make a nice wallpaper image for all the techno-paranoid iPhone owners out there.

Robot life

Ça s’est décidé je ne sais pas trop comment pendant la soirée, mais c’est clair, ma 38e année commence sous le signe des robots.

Voici un robot que vous verrez prochainement dans ma BD Rocket Space Ship. Lui et ses amis ont vraiment hâte de vous raconter leur histoire.

Utopsie 2009 — Long overdue redesign

Well today is my birthday. I’m finally old enough (38) for a mid-life crisis to rear its ugly head at the horizon.

There are still the portfolios «under construction» but I HAD to get something online for the 25th. Done. And you can go check out Rocket Space Ship, the webcomic i’ve been working on since the end of december.

WordPress is a wonderful tool and I’ve gotten very familiar with it, with php, with plugins, etc. It’s a …

Stuff I love and other stuff

Ten Six things I’m in love with right now

I’ve been having an extremely crappy day today, everything irritates me, so I’m trying to hack my mood by thinking hard about ten things I like. That’ll show me!

Twitter
Took me a while to get into it, probably a question of having the right tool for me. So it wasn’t until I recently installed TwitterFon on my iPhone that I really got into it. At the same time the Twitterfox plugin for Firefox was updated for my FF 3.1 beta 2 , so I strated getting a real deluge of tweets, from everywhere, all the time, yadda yadda yadda, you know how it is. If you don’t, signup for Twitter and follow me. SUITE »

Obsession hivernale

Un truc qui m’obsède complètement de l’hiver, avec ses trottoirs glissants, c’est d’essayer de marcher sur une plaque de glaçe le plus naturellement possible, sans changer mon allure ou ma démarche, sans que ça paraisse que je suis en train de marcher sur un terrain extremement glissant. Dans l’espoir qu’un étourdi qui ne regarde pas ce qui l’entoure et qui me suit se casse la gueule parce que ça paraissait pas qu’il allait mettre le pied sur une plaque de glaçe.
