For six years, DONNIO (assuming he exists) was France's key player for THAWTE.
That'll be the same THAWTE founded by self-styled "benevolent dictator" MARK SHUTTLEWORTH.
That'll be the same SHUTTLEWORTH claiming to be "the First African in Space".
Small world, eh?! "DONNIO" (whoever he is, if indeed anyone) spent six years in bed with SHUTTLEWORTH.
From http://www.yatedo.com/p/Jean-Philippe+D ... 677eb4be57
"I was...in charge of Thawte's representation in France and Belgium. Involved everything from business development & pre-sales to order processing and customer support. Interaction with founder Mark Shuttleworth (working with Mark was a real pleasure).
And from the Official SHUTTLEWORTH Biography: http://www.markshuttleworth.com/biography
After graduating from the University of Cape Town with a degree in finance and information technology, Mark [SHUTTLEWORTH] founded THAWTE, a company specialising in digital certificates and cryptography..
[SHUTTLEWORTH] moved to London in 2001, and began preparing for the First African in Space mission, training in Star City, Russia, and Khazakstan. In April 2002 he flew in space, as a cosmonaut member of the crew of Soyuz mission TM34 to the International Space Station...
Today [SHUTTLEWORTH] lives on the lovely Isle of Man [internationally-renowned haven for money launderers] along with 12 ducks, the equally lovely Claire, two black bitches and the occasional itinerant sheep. [and an awful lot of other people's money]
An interesting tie-up here with THAWTE, and "DONNIO" and his self-proclaimed expertise in cryptographic certification. This is a favourite haunt for organised crime, an industry rife with financial frauds on an unimaginable scale.
Of course this is all hypothetical, since the integrity of MARK SHUTTLEWORTH, founder of THAWTE, who boasts of being the "First African into Space", is obviously beyond reproach!
CUNNING SMIRK: MARK SHUTTLEWORTH (L) and "JEAN-PHILIPPE DONNIO" (R)
"DONNIO" is very reclusive, elusive even. For a man purported involved in such prestigious work over so many years, it seems there's only one photo of him!
Where all the photos of "DONNIO" attending those ultra-dull industry events around the world?
Just the one (80x80 pixel black and white) photo of "DONNIO"?! Fancy that!
