(About Virginie Galindo)

virginie galindo by fabrice

This blog is fed by Virginie Galindo. I am working as leader of communication on tech 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 note 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 an 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 entreneurs in tech, and contributing to entrepreneurs networking in south of France with #LittleFrenchTech.

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.
