Christian Aubry started communicating shortly after his birth more than 56 years ago. As a professional journalist for Paris magazines in the late 80s he was fully trained in videojournalism, then moved to Montreal and started dealing with computerized information management systems in the tourism industry. In 1997, the rise of the Worl Wide Web pulled him back to journalism, and forth to a new digital age. His summary of this period is published here.
In 2002, he was hired as a communicator and webmaster by RISQ (Québec universities’ Internet backbone). In 2006, he decided to « tear out the webpage » and started exploring various means of sharing professional information on the web with a video camera – then with two cameras, in real tine, then in high definition, and, finally, with subtitles. Six years lated, he had covered all the area of professional video and social media.
In 2012, Christian joined Savoir-faire Linux, the leader of free and open source software services in Canada. This is another step in the same adventure. His challenge is that a company dedicated to a new economy of sustainable development should be freely, openly and thoroughly communicating. « I cannot change the world », he says with a smile, « but I can certainly take a side. » 🙂
