Profilo di Valerio Bozzolan

I'm Valerio Bozzolan. I'm active in the Free software movement. I live around Milano and Torino. I was freelance, then I stopped, to enjoy a real life. I'm actually involved as GNU/Linux sysadmin and developer. My work consists in knowning very superficially many things.

If you want to talk with me about an awesome idea in which I also should invest, please give up (because in that case you need an investor, not a programmer).
