This journal is a praise towards simplicity.

It is written by Louis-Olivier Brassard, a young web craftsman reflecting on contemporary issues through design, philosophy, typography, literature and information technology.

The technical issues shaping today’s and tomorrow’s society could only be understood through practical and theoretical knowledge—hence the necessity of a multidisciplinary approach.

Louis-Olivier firmly believes that a better future can only be achieved through a democratic repossession of technology and knowledge by the masses; such repossession could only be accomplished through the means of simplicity—authentic revolution of a society saturated by complexity.
