- I hate very strong turbulences when the plane is landing
- Oslo is now listed as the most expensive city in the whole world, before Tokyo
- the hi-speed shuttle train between Oslo airport and the city is nice, clean, silent, fast; to be compared with RER between Paris CDG and the city!
- Håkon has a superb flat, the bbq party at his friend's place was very cool

Update: no, I am not going there for an interview but for a W3C meeting....
- Blog with comments
Very seriously, one of the main reasons why I didn't want to add to the current blog the ability for visitors to leave comments is my fear of trollers. I just didn't want to moderate comments, and unmoderated comments unfortunately lead to excess and abuse. I didn't want to see insults or insane rants written by others on my web site. Thanks Anthony Davis for showing me I was right.
By the way, his french is really bad. I guess he is proud of it. See below...
- Languages and scripts
Oleg asks why I love so much languages and scripts. Probably because after the color of our skins, it's the very first indicator of the human diversity, and I love human diversity. I love to listen to languages, I love to be able to know their roots and origins, I love to recognize a language when I hear it. I love the beauty of scripts and am always fascinated when they are in perfect (Armenian) or incredibly awful (English) harmony with the language. I love to see the influence of a civilization on its language and vice-versa. Because I can't travel so much, I start learning about foreign cultures through books, films and then language and script. I could drop computers to start a degree in compared linguistics and spend the rest of my life on reconstructed indo-european and the occurences of basque toponimy in western Europe :-)
The easiest language to learn is the fifth one-- anonymous

- Mal à la Blogosphère
Cela me fait marrer ces dizaines et dizaines de blogs qui n'écrivent rien d'autre que des citations d'autres blogs et parfois, rarement, une opinion sur ces même autres blogs. M'enfin, "marrer" n'est peut-être pas le terme le plus approprié ici... Tout ça tourne totalement en rond et m'ennuie assez prodigieusement. On dirait des chaînes de l'amitié puissance whatmille. Pas d'originalité (si ce n'est parfois dans la feuille de styles) et rien qui fasse frétiller mes neurones, comme lors de la lecture des blogs de Tristan, Karl, Mat, François, Tara ou Laurent par exemple. Je pense qu'on doit pouvoir demander à Google de nous automatiser ça, ils nous produiraient automagiquement quelques milliers de blogs en relation circulaire, qu'est-ce qu'on gagnerait du temps.
