Cutting the ribbon

Filed under:

Tada ! I’m hereby inaugurating a new blog… Although I already have one (OK, two), I don’t like to use it for anything too closely related to work; first, since I’m telecommuting from home, I prefer keeping well separated my private life and my work life (granted, starting this blog at 1am my time is probably not the best way to accomplish this); secondly, my private blog’s audience is not likely to be too interested in the kind of things I’m hoping to blog about; finally, my private blog is perfect for writing in French, but I prefer writing in English for anything that relates to my work in a way or another.

Well, “writing in English” doesn’t mean writing in good English, since I’m far from being bilingual, but hopefully my readers will forgive my spelling and grammatical errors…

So, as you may have guessed, this blog will be where I record interesting tidybits that I’m collecting here and there while doing my work; this means the main topics are likely to be Web technologies, Web development and quality of specifications and standards (if that doesn’t sound obvious to you, go and read my home page at W3C).

I guess the traditional disclaimer about how all this stuff is purely personal and doesn’t reflect W3C’s opinion is in order.
