Several of my coworkers speak Spanish fluently and one speaks Italian so I decided to brush up on my high school French to pick up the slack with our customers and because if you can speak with them in their native tongue they buy lots, lots more stuff.

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 2balles.cc, with others and me currently working out a blueprint.
