yet.org was created in 2006 by Sébastien Braun, a innovation and tech enthusiast. It originally used Movable Types and was mostly talking about Science Fiction litterature. It then evolved as a MediaWiki encyclopedia.
As of end of end of november 2012 a new iteration to a fully static web site is on his way, it is based on the excellent nanoc generator which I choosed because it's not only a blogging system but a great toolkit to build whatever comes out of your imagination. That's what I'm initiating with this YET makeover.
In this repository you'll find not only the code of YET but all the posts in MultiMarkdown format.
While creating this new incarnation, my journey were accelerated by the tons of information from people already using nanoc. I'd like to thank Clark Dave for his sharing, it helped a lot.
It's now my turn to share, feel free to re-use whatever part of YET.
By the way, YET stands for Yet Emerging Technologies.
