|Daniel Taupin held a degree of the ESPCI school and was a doctor in physics. He was a researcher in a solid-state physics lab at Orsay University.|
|He was a member (and sometimes chairman or secretary) of several mountaineering and rock climbing organizations.|
|He advocated a compromize in climbing practice between hobby and competition styles, and wrote many articles on this topic. He fought against a "via ferrata" equipment at a specific mountain.|
|Of course, he contributed to software of the TeX family.|
|The sad news appeared August 28, 2003. The funeral took place the 29th at Bourg d'Oisans.|
|A plate with his name should be installed on a large railway bridge close to Orsay (there are no more trains on this bridge since WW2, and it was popular among climbers for years until it threatened to collapse. Hopefully climbing there will soon be possible again).|
