Nicolas Magand on the internet

My name is Nicolas Magand and I live in Paris, France. I work as a social media and engagement editor at the Global Editors Network, a non-profit aimed at promoting innovation and sustainability in the news industry. Here I blog mostly about tech and media, but many other topics can face my enthusiasm.

My least favourite quote from my favourite writer

There it is, in all its gory glory:

At Torquay’s Town Hall hospital, she cared for the seriously wounded, assisted in operations and cleaned up after amputations. “I would wash [away] all the blood,” she later wrote, “and stick [the limb] in the furnace myself.”

'She' in the text here is Agatha Christie. She was a volunteer nurse during the first World War and an apothecary’s assistant during the second World War. Such experiences obviously influenced her writing, especially the use of poison for the murders in her books. A great read on the Guardian.

Whenever I watch Columbo, as you should, I take some screenshots.

Making lists is something on which I love to waste time; my—ever-changing—favourite songs list was a real challenge.

On the great Letterboxd, I keep a log of the movies I watch, rate them, sometimes review them. 

If you speak French, I highly recommend my friend Nabil's podcast: Art Oriented.
