About Myself

Lionel Dricot is my real name, Ploum for the friends. I’m an European software engineer born in 1981 with a predilection for user experience and free software. I like a lot of things, especially writing very long posts on this very own blog since 2004, only a few months after stating publicaly « Blog are only a trend that will end soon, I will never make a blog myself ».
I like to put my name on the cover of books or in the about box of free softwares, giving talks around the world, working for bitcoins and I usually jump when I sneeze.
