The Julipedia is Julio M. Merino Vidal's personal blog; this was born on June 22nd, 2004, and was previously known as jmmv's weblog. On October 22nd, 2005, jmmv's weblog was officially migrated from Livejournal to Blogger due to multiple reasons (beeing the ability to control visits the most important one).

The transition was an ideal moment to rename the blog to give it an identity of its own, and hence The Julipedia was born. This name was invented by Brainstorm, a friend of mine, who uses to call me by this name. It is composed of two parts, as you can see: Juli, which is the Catalan spelling of my first name, and pedia, which comes after Wikipedia. I believe this is because I often answer his Unix related questions quickly :-)

I hope you like the new look and structure of the blog; it should be easier to navigate than before. And, of course, be welcome to the blog if you are new to it!
