Hi, I’m Manu, a biking web developer. I’ve been writing on here since June 2002 about a bunch of different topics. My favorite posts are tagged with ✪.

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

a plot hole, plothole or plot error is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot. Such inconsistencies include such things as illogical or impossible events, and statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Thanks for reading!

Where are you from?

Even though that seems to be a simple question, I’ve never found it easy to answer. Is it where my parents are from? Where I was born (but never lived)? Where I grew up (until adolescence)? Where I studied? Where I worked? For me, all these places define who I am.

I speak (swiss-)german because my parents are swiss-german. I speak french because I grew up and went to school in the french speaking part of the canton of Fribourg. Fribourg is said to be a bilingual canton, which means that it is split into 2 parts: a german speaking part and a french speaking part. It does not mean that all people living in the canton of Fribourg speak both german and french.
