Hi, I’m Manu.

I used to have a blog a couple of years ago. I have to admit that I missed it a little, so I decided to go back at it in 2014. I write about a bunch of different topics.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, or plothole is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot, or constitutes a blatant omission of relevant information regarding the plot, sometimes even contradicting itself. These include such things as unlikely behaviour or actions of characters, illogical or impossible events, events happening for no apparent reason, or, statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Here are a couple of links if you want to know more about me:

And last but not least, here is my resume.

Thanks for reading.

N.B. this site has been tested on the most recent versions of Safari and Chrome on Mac OS X, as well as Safari on iOS. If something seems broken on one of those browsers, shoot me an email. If you’re using another browser, I’m sorry. I don’t find fixing browser quirks very interesting, I do enough of it professionnally.

why do i have a blog ?

ok. i went to bed like 20min ago, but since the best thinking goes on while lying in my bed, waiting to fall asleep, i had to get up again and write this down.

a couple of hours ago, i had sum wordz wid da groot about why i (we) keep a blog. it has to be more than a diary, because it’s put online so other people can read it. is it some sort of exhibitionism? maybe. it might be some way of exposing your thoughts, w/o having to confess them to someone in particular, which often is more complicated… i dunno… for example, i don’t talk to my parents/sisters about my state of mind, but i know that my sister reads this page. you might think this is cowardish. maybe. we just don’t talk about life with each other. that’s the way it is.

the other difference (a downside?) of the blog with the (paper) diary is that, knowing that people will/might read it, you can’t write down everything you want. maybe i’ll make up a possibilty to post private blogs only viewable by me (but then why should it be online??!… see the dilemma?). i’m sooo tempted to write down some stuff about X and Y, this and that! but let’s stay diplomatic… argh
