bibliosurf.com Durant 5 ans, j'ai essayé de greffer un service de ventes de livres papier et numériques sur un espace de médiation original. Après 5 ans, je jette l'éponge constatant qu'il est difficile d'être à la hauteur pour un "artisan isolé" dans de nombreux domaines à la fois : administration d'entreprise, codage informatique, ecommerce, médiation, formation... Un grand merci à tous ceux qui ont contribué au site en postant des chroniques.
