(About Virginie Galindo)

virginie galindo by fabrice

This blog is fed by Virginie Galindo. I am working as leader of communication on technology and innovation in Gemalto CTO, a digital security company. Curious about techno, people, and anything which relates to human creativity I am sharing personal thoughts here (please note that the content is not my employer’s view). You can contact me, sending nice messages, to contact @ poulpita dot com

If you “duckduckgo” or “Qwant” me, you may find my name associated with W3C, as a previously elected W3C Advisory Board, but also nominated chair of W3C Web Security Interest Group and (now closed) Web Crypto Working Group. In addition, I am also involved in Girl & Tech, promoting women entrepreneurs in tech, and contributing to entrepreneurs networking in south of France with #LittleFrenchTech. I am also designing a oon to be announced conference, named Homo Numericus in Marseille.

You can follow my professional activities under LinkedIn, or follow my tweet feed under @poulpita or look at my french literature production under WeLoveWords. I am shooting life on poulpita_off and drawing stuff also my Tumblr . In addition I am a regular speaker and writer on standard, security, technology.
