Michel Gien describes his education with computing, his decision to join the Cyclades project under Louis Pouzin, and his subsequent career in networking and operating systems. Gien collaborated on a number of French, European, and international projects such as the European Informatics Network, the International Network Working Group, and Open Systems Interconnection. He reflects on his work in the private sector with Chorus Systems, and on the challenges of developing a culture of entrepreneurship in France.
This set of nine interviews conducted with Tilly Bayard-Richard, Najah Naffah, Louis Pouzin, Marc E. Levilion, Michel Gien, Jean-Louis Grangé, Gérard Le Lann, Rémi Després, and André Danthine was funded by the ACM History Committee with a fellowship on “European Contributions to Computer Networks: An Oral History Project.”
