Short biography: 

A niece of famous documentary director Claude Lanzmann, Chine Lanzmann was one of the first female interactive fiction designers. In 1985, she founded Cite Macintosh, one of the first virtual communities in France. In 1986, she wrote a screenplay for her only work of interactive fiction, La femme qui ne supportait pas les ordinateurs, which was programmed by Jean-Louis Le Breton and released by Froggy Software. La femme... came to be known as a pioneering articulation of feminist paradigm in interactive fiction, summarizing Lanzmann's experiences in toxic, male-dominated virtual communities. After quitting Froggy, Lanzmann worked as a journalist for Canal+ and coordinated the work on a cultural magazine Cyber Culture. Recently, she works as a coach.
