Mplungjan: Helping Others Inspires MeMay 7, 2012 4:20 pm ·
With a self-proclaimed hobby of helping people, it’s no wonder that Michel Plungjan (known to the Experts Exchange community as mplungjan) is one of our top experts. Michel hails from The Hague, the capital city of South Holland in the Netherlands, where he works in information technology for the European Patent Office as the IT expert for the world’s largest patent information database, Espacenet.
“My family and using my skills to help people are what get me out of bed in the morning,” Michel says.
“Getting to help people and learn something in the process keeps me participating on Experts Exchange,” Michel says.
Among the large number of questions he’s answered over the past 12 years, Michel singled out two:
“From a name dropping point of view, helping the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab with an interactive image map of the moon was the most interesting problem I’ve had to solve.
From a humanitarian standpoint, helping a neurosurgeon create a training tool for people with massive brain damage by re-using an online keyboard I made for a university was the most interesting.”
