How to stay in touch with me ?¶
Instantaneous video-conference ?¶
First, reach me by e-mail, so we agree on a date and time to call (asynchronous),
Why ? It does not require any installation or plugin, no need to create any account, no need for a specific software - just your regular web browser (a fairly recent one is needed). And it’s awesomely secured, as the conversation and messages are not spied nor registered (the communication uses peer-to-peer trafic with WebRTC, that’s safe).
Other web services that I like : https://services.renater.fr/rendez-vous/index (by RENATER, for French researchers and teachers), https://visio.inria.fr/?lang=fr-FR (by INRIA), https://meet.jit.si/, https://www.gruveo.com/, https://whereby.com/ (it was appear.in before).
You can write a letter or some postal cards to me (I love them), at the following addresses (listed by decreasing preference):
Mr Lilian Besson Bureau R112 - Département Informatique et Télécommunications École Normale Supérieure de Rennes Campus de Ker Lann Avenue Robert Schuman 35170 Bruz - France
To my own place (in France) (you can see it on this OpenStreetMap map)
Mr Lilian Besson, 23, boulevard Jeanne d'Arc, 35000 - Rennes, France
If you are a spammer, go on: email@example.com! Oh, and, go kîll yoùrself also if you are a spammer!! (Well… spammers are usually bots, ie spambots, but it feels good to yell at them anyway!)
If you are not a spammer, go on, you can use one of these email addresses:
You can use this awesome website (
if you don’t have access to an email client right now.
To speak directly, e.g. if it is important, you can (try to) call me, you could use my French cellphone number:
You could also try to send me text messages (SMS), with the same number (obviously).
The next solutions are way more geeky, and you will need a relatively recent computer to try them (or a smartphone).
« Ask me anything! »¶
These two pages can be used to ask my a question publically (everyone can see what you ask and my answer): on GitHub : github.com/Naereen/ama (in English), github.com/Naereen/ama.fr (in French), both requires a GitHub account; and on Bitbucket : bitbucket.org/lbesson/ama (in English), bitbucket.org/lbesson/ama.fr (in French), no need for an account.
Forms on some web pages¶
These web services, strongly based on the great functions offered by the HTML 5, offer the possibility to talk, to write or even to share files, dynamically.
gruveo.com/#Naereen for vocal or videos calls. It seems to be secured and reliable,
whereby.com/Naereen for video-chat (up to 8 persons at a time),
RTC Copy to securely send files over the Internet (no matter the type, no matter the size).
- This page vieprivee.html (in French)
Some others tools are presented there, and they surely can be used to (try to) preserve your on-line private life.
