Just a small follow-up on my earlier post about how I learned English because I noticed I forgot to talk about how I use Google too :) Continue reading

How to stay connected in Japan
Before I went to Japan I had heard that internet connectivity would be a problem. And, as surprising as it can be given Japan is one of the most connected country in the world, if you go unprepared it can actually be an issue because free wifi is not really that common. Continue reading

The myths of IP tracking
Now in France there is a flurry of articles about how websites for airlines and train companies are tracking your IP address to raise the prices if you were to come back. And, of course, they all give practical advices to the poor reader so they don’t get scammed. There are several things in those articles that had my bells ringing. Continue reading
How to change your WordPress password when you lost all hopes
I had the same problem recently on 4 different WordPress installations: When trying to reset my password the process would stop short at the last stage (when I submit the new password) and the server would return me a “403 Forbidden” HTTP status code.
The case for Vertical Videos
In The Suppression of Vertical Videos, James Watt makes the case for Vertical Videos and argue that YouTube should be blamed instead of people shooting Vertical Videos. Continue reading
I am finally ditching Feedburner
I never really had a use for the thing, it’s not working anyway and with the trend of closing Google services it’s not going to be there too long either. So I am reclaiming my feeds. Continue reading
Wide-angle photography with your iPhone
I said in a previous post that sometime I was missing my camera because I cannot do nice portraits with my iPhone. I was also missing doing wide-angle photography, until I found Photosynth, an iPhone App by Microsoft. Continue reading
The best way to integrate your LinkedIn profile with WordPress
I heard or read someone, recently, saying that LinkedIn was nothing more than a glorified resume. Well, 10 years ago this was certainly true and I was not looking for anything more. I had ditched the Word documents since a long time and was distributing my résumé in PDF format, despite some recruiters stubbornly asking me Word documents. Continue reading

Print me up Scotty!
3D printing just got to a new level with the worlds smallest 3D printed objects (go read this and watch the video, I’ll be waiting here).
3D printing is a subject I have been discussing often with friends and I even mentioned it in a previous post, here (in French), about IP and piracy. This is a revolution I cannot wait to see because this is gonna be huge on so many levels!
And the music/movie download issues will be nothing compared to the IP mayhem this is gonna bring, just imagine when anyone will be able to print a Panton chair or a Starck lemon squeezer.
And just think about what will be possible with copyleft designs, we might even have a Justin Bieber of design (tho I am not really looking forward for this one)!
And we will be able to download items we buy from Amazon.
This is the beginning of teleportation too! As soon as someone develop a good enough scanner (can TSA’s full body scanners be of any use here? or this may be?) we will be able to scan and send items through the Internet to our friends’ 3D printers.
This is gonna be so awesome! And just imagine when we will be able to print biological structures :D
