About me

Hi! I'm fox and this is my simple homepage.

I'm a young guy interested in computer stuff, science, maths, Open Source and the Rubik's cube.

I'm currently attending the third year of Computer Science at University of Trento and I'm working for SpazioDati, a startup in Trento about linked data, open data and semantic web.

In the past I worked for the Scientific and Technological Research Centre of Bruno Kessler Foundation in the SoNet group as a developer and researcher (well, I tried to do that actually). We focused on social networks and social media, Wikipedia in particular.

I took part in the Google Summer of Code 2012 with the project "Ebuild upstream scanner enhancements" for the Gentoo Foundation.

I'm a GNU/Linux user and lover, I like Python and C programming and I like web based stuff a lot.

In my freetime I contribute to a lot of open source projects and release almost everything I write as free software.

At the moment I'm working for Gentoo Linux on euscan and sometimes I'm a random contributor for the GlobaLeaks project.

Some friends of mine consider me a fool just because I use Gentoo on my Macbook (yeah, I actually don't know why i bought a Macbook) but I think that there're a lot of worse things to do.

I'm interested in IT security too, even if i'm not so good. In March 2011 together with some friends we took part in the "Cracca al Tesoro" competition in Milan where we gained the third place.

I love any kind of geek gadgets or t-shirts and I have a sort of a geeky clothes collection ;). Obviously I'm a great fan of "The Big Bang Theory".

In my spare time I like improving my skills with the Rubik's cube and other twisted puzzles (without great results though). This is my WCA profile.

I like playing HackGames such as SmashTheStack, HackThisSite and similar stuff.

My favourite kind of music are folk, ska, reggae and rock. I like to listen to it while I'm coding or cubing. This is my last.fm profile.

I'm a really low skilled homebrewer but I'm trying to produce better and better beer and mead.

I don't know if this is good and healthy but when I work I'm totally goal driven, I can stay in front of my laptop for many hours until I don't finish what I'm doing. That's totally bad practice if you have other arrangements!

If you want to know more you can see my projects or if you want to discuss something feel free to contact me!


Happy hacking!
