Tweetbook: express auto-biography print-on-demand
Laurent Bolli gave me my "tweetbook" copy. It's basically a book with the content I've put on Twitter for few months. Tweetbook is a print-on-demand platform made by bookap that allows to archive your Twitter feed into a beautifully printed and bound book. The project was presented at a nice exhibit called "Objet(s) numériques" at Le Lieu du Design in Paris.

The corresponding opus can also be sent by email (PDF) or printed on demand, as a sort of "express autobiography""
