Hey! I'm David, the author of the Real-World Cryptography book. I'm a crypto engineer at O(1) Labs on the Mina cryptocurrency, previously I was the security lead for Diem (formerly Libra) at Novi (Facebook), and a security consultant for the Cryptography Services of NCC Group. This is my blog about cryptography and security and other related topics that I find interesting.

One more list posted November 2013

It's time for a new list of random things I noticed about Bordeaux :

  • Many 2€ kebab places. Also, kebab here are made with a Lebanese bread, like a crepe, and not with the half of an Arabic bread like in Lyon.
  • It's raining, A LOT. It's raining at least once a week, but usually way more than once a week.
  • It's not that cold. I just came back from a week in Lyon and oh my god was it cold there, you can feel winter coming, but in Bordeaux ? Chill, you don't need that jacket.
  • There are no Bordelais. Most people I run into come from other places in France. I actually only met one Bordelaise and it was during my first week here.
  • The city is really not that big. In 30 minutes you feel like you've seen most of it.
  • We have Velov' in Lyon, Velib' in Paris, here it's Vcub. Those free bikes you can rent pretty much anywhere.
Well done! You've reached the end of my post. Now you can leave a comment or read something else.

Just as a disclaimer, I'm not passing any judgments (especially in my observation about gay and black people). I'm just writing what I see, in an analytic kind of way. Everything that looks different from another french city is worth being written in my modest opinion.
