my memory is leaking this plumber can't fix it
it's all going away
today this guy showed up on bloglines
and I thought

Oh, He's Back!

I had seen him before
a lot, I used to see him all the time
it meant I could not access something
and it was boring
I would reload and he would still be here
with his shoulders and tools
I hated that plumber and now he's back

My Bio for ISEA 2006 (unpublished)

categories: | | |

It is now July 2006, I was born on the 23rd of August 1958 in France. 30 years ago rock n roll music, me and others coalesced into a movement named Punk which died 2 years later having transformed me, others and the way folk culture is created and experienced. Less than 20 years after that the french hypermedia revue Pleine-Peau was started by me, others. They departed. I opened the first french blog ever in April 2000 again inviting others, it is still there at, with others and me currently working out a blueprint.
