Patrick Chanezon about Platforms and Software Development



August 28th, 2006 · 7 Comments


This is Patrick Chanezon’s blog, an online place where I share thoughts, code, and a few haikus.

I’m old, married to Dorothee Chabas, a brilliant neurologist specialized in Multiple Sclerosis. We have 3 kids: Eliette (), Simon () and Charlotte ().


I have worked as a software engineer for 10 years at Accenture, Netscape, AOL and Sun Microsystems, then in developer relations at Google, VMware, Docker and Microsoft. See more details in P@ Resume, Linkedin, Twitter.

Blog History

Over the past 10 years I have played with various blogging software. My old blogs can be found:

  • In 2019 I moved to a Jekyll based blog at blog.chanezon.com. And I moved my previous static blogs to Azure storage.
  • From July 2006 to 2019 I moved P@ Log to the PHP based WordPress because my Ruby based blog crashed every hour. In 2017 I got rid of the Azure Linux VM where I was hosting Wordpress, exported the blog as a static website and moved all my previous blogs to an nginx container image.
  • From May 2005 to July 2006, I started doing most of my personal hacking in Ruby, and Ruby On Rails, so I hacked the Rails based blog engine Typo to power P@ Log
  • P@ Sunglasses: from april 2004 to april 2005, powered by Roller (java) based
  • P@’s blog: from august 2004 to december 2004, powered by blojsom (java), mainly used to play with mobile blogging, posting pictures from my cell phone.
  • Patrick Chanezon’s weblog: from July 2003-April 2004, powered by Movable Type (Perl)

    Hi Patrick,

    Nice blog! I was a super fan of google wave and when I search for the news of google wave, by chance I jump to your blog 馃檪 It is kind of ??~?I don’t know how to say this in english… :-(?! I would like to briefly introduce myself and then ask you something…. I am now a post-doc researcher of biology at Paris. My supervisor, Prof. Francois Taddei is a super active scientist and is willing to promote some new open source web-tools for education and research. He gets fundings from France telecom and Bettencourt fondation for this dream. So we are going to work on a project called WISER-U (world-wide interactions for science, education and research) since this summer. And when we saw the video of google wave, we think it will definitely play an important role for our project. Next month, from July 6th to 12th and July 29th to August 3rd, we will be at Beijing and organize two workshops on our project with our collaborators at Peking University. You and your friends/colleagues are more than welcomed to spend some time with us in the workshop! You will meet my supervisor and several outstanding French students as well (We definitely will bring some good wines from Paris as well!! )! It will be even more exciting if you can share some experience on google wave and the other google products/applications with the best French and Chinese students. So…. what do you think? If you want I can send you more details of our workshops at Peking University. Again you and your colleagues/friends are sincerely welcomed!

    By the way, don’t be surprised if you get an email from my supervisor Prof. Francois Taddei very soon…. He is also a big fan of google wave, open source, education and interdisciplinary research!

    Looking forward to your reply,

    […] Patrick Chanezon cit贸 a Borges “驴Qu茅 son las nubes? 驴Una arquitectura del azar?” con su acento afrancesado en la key note sobre cloud computing. Las salas se llamaban Picasso y Pablo Nerd-uda. Alg煤n chiste sobre el HTML5 y sus posibilidades con el v铆deo o el cantado: “Google Maps integrar谩 publicidad en el futuro”. Hablando de mapas alguien present贸 una interesante aplicaci贸n argentina para el seguimiento satelital de veh铆culos en ese mashups (mezclas) Google y lo que m谩s llam贸 la atenci贸n de los presentes en la charla de Google Wave, fue un robot Pulp Fiction.

    My name is Robert, I have 22 years living in Santiago de Chile, with a couple of friends a while ago we made small developments around Android, wanting to enter fully into this market. The issue is that like any self-respecting college student so, have the tools and resources needed to be developing new things is an obstacle, especially living in a South American country where all the advances in technology come last or of frent贸n fail.

    Specifically what we need for now is to have an Android phone with good capabilities in terms of hardware and Google Nexus One or some other similar model as having one can be testing what we develop, making the most of hardware features that owns this model. On several occasions we tried to get something at the national level as students to see if we can lend a hand, but unfortunately we have never been answered, it seems that if there is news in between it is impossible to get help. But even considering that in Chile there are no offices for Google which go like in Mexico.

    Because of this came the idea of using someone who works at Google to more global level, we may take care of shipping charges if necessary, but not the cost of equipment as availability is very little of these phones Latam-level characteristics. As in developmental events such as the Google I / O give them away, do not think they get a team to be complex, as I say we are very interested in developing for Android but we lack some tools as a suitable terminal for example.

    Thanking you from and the help we can provide, attentive to your answer.

    Best regards
    Santiago .-
