Paul Otlet, a Belgian dreamer and visionary, one of the forefathers of the Internet.

It remains my honour that, for more than a decade, I was working at the Union of International Associations (UIA) the NGO that he set up here in Brussels in 1907. It transformed my life forever — mainly thanks to the intriguing people I met in the process (Anthony Judge, Nadia McLaren, Jacques de Mévius, ... to name a few).
