Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I had written this blog in English since its humble beginnings. Not that I really considered that at the time, I was really just writing some sort of diary for family and friends. But then came the LHC startup, and the superluminal neutrinos, and the Higgs discovery, and... I have to admit that ver the years I played with the idea more than once. I know from the blog access statistics that sometime some reader lands here from a Google Translate page, so there has always been some potential for an international readership. Who knows? (and, by the way, Google Translate has become really good!).
Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I had written this blog in English. Or in broken English. Or in whatever form of English I have some command on, that is not necessarily a very good one. This blog is not new to systematic typos, whatever the language. But anyway.
Sometimes I wonder, because this blog has just turned ten years old, and ten years are quite a lot, and I'm asking myself again what to do with it, what kind of experiment I could run in this space, what projects I could nurture, if any.
Ou j'aurais pu l'écrire en Français depuis le debut, si seulement je en avais été capable. Mais il y a probablement trop d'accents en Français pour un blog. Par ailleurs, comment dit-on "blog" en Français? Blogue? Carnet électronique sur la toile? Bof.
