But who's the guy ?

Guillaume Belfiore

— A bit of a geek

Hello, I’m Guillaume. Or Gee. I’m a French journalist currently looking for new opportunities.

Over the past ten years, I have mostly covered web and mobile technologies but many other subjects ranging from smartphones, tablets, PC to OS, mobile applications, browsers and including security and startups.

On my freetime, I do front-end Web development and I have occasionally worked as a freelance in that field. Self-taught, I learn new things everyday.

— This Website

Ever since I got this domain - back in 2005 - this website has had many designs (really, I mean like 30-40...). I actually wish I could just stick to a particular front UI but whenever I discover a super cool JS or CSS trick I want to test it and master it. In the end, my website becomes shiny, trendy and quite fancy. Too much. Since, it doesn't necessarily reflects who I am on daily basis, I always come back to something simple.

When it comes to web design, I actually like minimalism (even though this word has been quite abused lately and doesn't mean much today). The point is : it forces me to focus on every single detail on a clean interface. Yet, minimal design can often be quite cold, without any particular atmosphere. However, I have always been attracted to vintage design as well (and this has nothing to do with the hipster trend!) as it directly conveys a warm feeling. So here I tried to combine both approaches.

— The journal

I don’t blog on a regular basis but whenever something comes up I feel the need to write it down. And a tweet isn’t enough…

I mostly address technology subjects but who knows, this might change with time. Please, be aware that I am French. I do my best to write in a proper English, but this is also a way for me to practice. Thanks for your understanding.

From Wordpress to Typepad and including Blogger, Text Pattern or Joomla, I have tested several CMS. About 8 years ago, I decided to stick to Tumblr for its simplicity and flexibility in terms of customization. It just does the job without any extra useless features.

I have developed the template myself. Should you encounter any problem, feel free to ping me

Oh and I wear hats, drink beer, coffee and whisky and listen to rock music.
