My personal homepage has evolved more into a site focused on my musical activities :

As of 2021 I'm putting more effort into the Synaesmedia YouTube channel (mainly about various geek / software strategies for making music) :

Meanwhile, my geek / programmer / wiki-obsessive / DigitalGardening activities are mainly captured at

I was writing way too much on Quora : so, as of 2021, I've closed my account and given up.

Also :


I love music and occasionally write weird programs to compose it. (PhilsMusic, PhilsFavouriteBands, MusicalStuff)

Occasionally I write about BlockChains and various innovations OnMoney, so for the sake of transparency, here's my CryptoDisclosure
