Une course contre la montre commence alors pour Alexandre Brachet, le directeur d'Upian, tout jeune studio de production de contenus multimédias. "Je suis un gros consommateur de presse, et en plus je connais bien le coin de Corse où l'affaire se déroulait, explique-t-il. Je me suis alors dit qu'il fallait qu'on fasse l'équivalent Internet d'un dessin de presse…" Quarante-huit heures plus tard, La Paillote Chez Francis est en ligne.
