About this site


This website is built with Blot, an open source blog­ging plat­form with no in­ter­face. Essentially, Blot turns a folder into a blog”1. That means this website is made of files that live in a folder, on my computer. I write and edit files with MacDown, a text editor under MIT License, and I use git to synchronise files with Blot.


This website lives on an AWS server (I would like to change this), hosted via Blot.


I picked a Creative Commons license for the text because:

« Ce qui n’est pas donné est perdu. »2

Everything that is not given away is lost.”

This is the deal:

None for now, a little bit later.

Low tech

As mentioned in Hosting, I would like to switch hosting to minimize CO2 per page view. This website currently produces 0.07 grams CO2 per page view. (The average web page tested produces 1.76 grams CO2 per page view.3)


This website is part of two webrings - see footer.

Since you made it to the end of that page: if you would like to keep in touch, I use a newsletter to keep the conversation going with people. I sent it 2-3 times per year. If you subscribe and read something that triggers a thought, you can reply, and we can chat. If you see nothing that interests you, unsubscribe in one click.

You can sign up for the mailing list here.

That is how I keep in touch with people4; I am not on social media.
