About François-Xavier

Bio

I am a digital worker since 1991, passionate about the internet as an amazing tool that give (almost) everybody a voice. My main skills are information architecture, content and social web strategy, organisational and business models, specs writing, project management... I belong to a digital workers community here, in Bordeaux: Aquinum. This non profit leads projects such as setting up a coworking space, gathering professionals for small or medium conferences... Appart from my work, I'm involved in traditional forestery and natural spaces management since I own a piece of forest. I am very concerned by environmental matters and how to deal with the impact of massive tourism (dune du Pyla). The most of my free time, I spend it with friends and family on my little sailing boat on the bassin d'Arcachon sea, or kitesurfing or traveling or both activity together!

TEDActive 2013

My TED story

After my first TEDx, Paris 2011, as simple attendee, then TEDxBasqueCountry, I had no other choice that grabbing the TEDxBordeaux license when it came free. So I eventually led the organization of the 2d edition of TEDx in Bordeaux in december 2012. In the meantime, and after, I kept attending as many events as I could. For having the chance to attend TEDActive in Palm Spings, february 2013.
