2003-
Back to the writing board


Innovation isn't as fun as it used to be and mature markets tend to bore me. So I'm focusing on the only disruptive environments I know : the ones I design in my head.
This excuse for a website only displays my junk writing (blogules in French, blogules in English-or-sort-of, mot-bile and footlog).
For the "literature" part, my "dragedies" are up for grabs.
Somewhere in between, I published chronicles on "The other history of football", La Ligue des Oublies. That's football as in soccer.
