Hello world!

Me at my 2 years' old birthday party

This website is personal, with moderate ambitions. What about the credits? The font is the open source IBM Plex Sans, #39 is courtesy of SCAD University, #37 of MyVisto, #31 of Promemoria, #15 of Ulaş Uğur, and #14 was taken from the ISS in 2011 by Expedition 28 crew. The portraits inside #19 are by Lovethesign 2016's creative team. I can't find the author of #23. I took all the other pictures, I wrote everything you've read, even what you can't: the code. I developed this site by myself and thanks to Codepal, a generative AI. Uh uh: in addition to my gratitude, does Codepal have any rights on this website? I wouldn't say that, it carried out technical work read By the way, my opinion is that while something will develop for us, reading books and poems and staring at art will have more and more value—even if you, like me, just don't get them all the time.
