This blog

My name is Julien Deswaef and this is my WordPress.

This blog started June 2010 on (now defunkt) Posterous because I wanted to feed different social media platforms with curated content and links for my friends. Since I didn’t want to spend time to share the same stuff over and over again, I needed one to tool do the job for me. « Post once, share everywhere », promoted Posterous. But then, like so many nice things on the web, they were bought, and then they were shut down.

The long history online services sold and destroyed got me into hosting myself more and more the tools I like, when possible. And that’s the main reason, I set myself to customize a WordPress installation into a Posterous clone. I called this project: Posterpress. It doesn’t have all the features, but it does the job.

Since then, the content of this blog has changed, often. From just a paste-here, push-everywhere cool stuff, it slowly became a space where I write and talk more about my own work or my own research.

J’écris aussi en français, en fonction du sujet, de mon humeur ou des lecteurs auxquels je m’adresse.

If you want to know more about what I do, see my portfolio at xuv.be.

I also keep a public list of bookmarks at b.xuv.be.

(But please don’t add me to your mailing-list or newsletter without my consent. And I don’t do banner or link exchange, so don’t bother with those kind of offers.)

I also do appreciate a mail, when it’s signed and private.
