Dr. Milan


I live in Bastille area of Paris with my wife and our dog.

I am a food person. I also like Paolo Sorrentino, Luca Guadagnino, Richard Avedon, Frank Gehry, Jean-Michel Jarre, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Larry Fink, Henrik Purienne, and Mikael Jansson.

My thinking is under influence of Marvin Minsky, Claude Shannon, Douglas Engelbart, Tim Berners-Lee and Christopher Alexander.

It is highly unlikely to receive a message not containing a typo from me.

I don't have a driver's license and I find football games to be boring.

My life often looks like an Almodovar movie.

I worry, greatly, that our global information space, despite rapid growth of new and efficient communication tools, is becoming more and more dysfunctional. I am not sure that it is due to the lesser quality of users that now overwhelm the internet. I rather think, the insufficiency of our engineering is the key.

Crisis is an opportunity for greatness.

I find that professionalism - the simple courtesy of replying to e-mails, coming to meetings prepared and on time, and being nice - is too scarce in modern interactions.

Jean-Marc Joblot said to me "On fait ce qu'on aime. C'est comme ça qu'on est libre."

Adopted dogs are cuter than the ones you can buy.

Gifts have high likelihood of being successful when bought from Michel Cluizel, Alain Ducasse Chocolat or Charvet. Books are safe as long they are composed primarily of pictures.
