Peter Landry, lawyer historian, philosopher, a.k.a. blupete, is the creator of a successful website,

The Site has been described by a prestigious British site, as Follows:

"Blupete Biographies provides short biographies of notable people in the fields of law, literature, economics, philosophy, history, and political science. The website also provides very general bibliographies cover the aforementioned fields, and several essays by the site's author on various subjects ranging from wildflowers, though Canadian politics, to personal qualities such as leadership. A commentary archived features quotations and reflections on a wide variety of subjects ranging from flowers, taxes, and capital punishment, thought to politics, feminism, civilizations, and happiness. The biographies range form four sentences summaries of people's lives, to more extensive commentaries with explanations of the subject's ideas in the context of their times, important quotations for their works, and notes on their biographies. In many cases the site also provides connections to other web pages offering electronic texts of the works discussed. This website is the personal home page of Peter Landry, a lawyer form Nova Scotia, and its contents reflects his broad interests in the humanities. Philosophers and political theorists in particular tend to be well represented, with good pieces on John Locke and Edmund Burke, for instance. The site is a model of good presentation which many academic web-designers would do well to emulate. Despite its non-academic origins, the site's biographies and summaries should prove to be useful to undergraduates requiring basic reference material, and should provide ideas for further study."
