This website is a horrendous mix of French and English. I recommend you consider it an intended and fascinating insight into my thought process.
Hi! I’m Alex, someone who likes languages, spending too much time on the Internet, and complaining (a common side effect of being French).
Projects and interests
- Wikimedia : I’ve written quite a bit on Wikipedia in French. I also like the Wiktionary and Wikisource, among other Wikimedia projects. In August 2022, I was elected admin of the French-language Wikipedia. In November 2023, I was elected to the board of trustees of Wikimédia France.
- IndieWeb: I like the IndieWeb’s philosophy of personal websites and blogs that connect with each other.
- [Past] Super Smash Bros. Melee, as a tournament organizer, community organizer, and person focusing on gender diversity within the community.
- [Past] Réussir Mes Études was my blog from 2012 to 2022. For a while, it was the leading French-language indie blog for students.
