About

I am d a n i : ) and this is a sort of tumblelog or blog where I capture stuff related to my daily life, my passions, my trips and social life.
This blog complements my photography site ::norai.net.

You can follow me in twitter@tokao.

I use my iPhone 3GS iPhone 4s to upload most of the stuff, using brightkite, tweetie (now iPhone twitter), facebook, pixelpipe, qik and youtube.

I use the following categories:tokao

  • journal
  • photos
  • videos
  • thoughts
  • URLs
  • quotes
  • conversations
  • podcasts
  • music
  • travel
  • technology …

… and a lot of tags.

::norai.net has been online since 2000 always using mambo and then joomla. A few months ago I decided to dedicate it to my other passion, photography, so no more CMS for norai… just a nice flash gallery with some (and I say some) of my photos.

tokao.com is based on wordpress.

Both (tokao and norai) are hosted in my servers at home, running linux CentOS on a regular hosting provider… less hassle. At home I have a NAS with 15Tb that serves a VPN, Surveillance station, Music and Video server and Photo archive.

My servers are in a (now) old pentium 4 at 3.2Ghz with 3 Gb or RAM, 5 internal Hard Discs (2x120Gb in Raid for the system and 2x1Tb in Raid for photos plus one for daily/weekly back up of the system). My server is the same but it is switched off…. They are under a very good UPS (1500 APC). I have a static  IP (62.147.183.196) in an ADSL (8128Kbps/928) fiber optics (100Mb/100Mb) connection… and much more (such as ip cameras, mediacenter, NAS, etc..).

A tumblelog is a variation of a blog, that favors short-form, mixed-media posts over the longer editorial posts frequently associated with blogging. Common post formats found on tumblelogs include links, photos, quotes, dialogues, and video. Unlike blogs, this format is frequently used to share the author’s creations, discoveries, or experiences without providing a commentary.

The term “tumblelog” was coined by Why the lucky stiff in a blog post on April 12th, 2005, while describing Chris Neukirchen’s Anarchaia.

Blogging has mutated into simpler forms (specifically, link- and mob- and aud- and vid- variant), but I don’t think I’ve seen a blog like Chris Neukirchen’s Anarchaia, which fudges together a bunch of disparate forms of citation (links, quotes, flickrings) into a very long and narrow and distracted tumblelog.

This makes Anarchaia the first official tumblelog.

Jason Kottke described tumblelogs on October 19th, 2005:

A tumblelog is a quick and dirty stream of consciousness, a bit like a remaindered links style linklog but with more than just links. They remind me of an older style of blogging, back when people did sites by hand, before Movable Type made post titles all but mandatory, blog entries turned into short magazine articles, and posts belonged to a conversation distributed throughout the entire blogosphere. Robot Wisdom and Bifurcated Rivets are two older style weblogs that feel very much like these tumblelogs with minimal commentary, little cross-blog chatter, the barest whiff of a finished published work, almost pure editing…really just a way to quickly publish the “stuff” that you run across every day on the web

This is a non-exhaustive list of sites I did/worked on:

  • norai.net (flash hosted in my house)
  • tokao.com (WordPress hosted in my house)
  • GWIT (based on joomla and hosted at infomaniak)
  • ESAN (based on joomla and hosted at a cheap hosting provider Globat based in the US)
  • Shelter Centre (Drupal hosted in a VPS using slicehost with Ubuntu Server in the US)
  • Clothing Connect (Drupal hosted in a VPS using SWVPS with Ubuntu Server in the US)
  • SPINNA (html with java based in clothing-connect servers)
  • Chalet Chanteclerc (the client switched off all the booking system… now dealing with an agency…)
  • Bergerie (multilingual site, basic, on Joomla)
  • IFRC
  • IPU
  • IASC
