"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"


Ah, the good old days, when a laptop was the size of a sewing machine and the weight of a baby elephant. Popular jokes of the early 80s included "How many people do you need to move an Osborne 1 laptop?".
Can you imagine that little brat on the picture below is actually me, on my dads first laptop? Carefully pushing the buttons, and gazing at the technological marvel that stands before my tiny little feet.
Could that little Cedric there in early 80s have guessed that one day he himself would have a laptop the size of a coffee table book on his lap, blogging on his sofa/bed/toilet about this very moment?

My early 80s attempts to blog...Today*s attempt...

Who knows on what I will be blogging in 20 years from now?

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
