My main hobby is traveling and be immersed in other cultures, but I have also contributed to the creation of Azzurra, the most successful Italian IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network since 1997!
I love cultural exchanges. I love to see people of other cultures, be immersed in their culture, try their food, listen to their music, and discuss with them about everything. In the future I will post in this section some pictures of my travels. In the meantime, I will just put a map of the places I have visited (thanks to Tripadvisor!).
IRC – Internet Relay Chat – Azzurra IRC Network
Internet Relay Chat is a protocol created in 1988 to allow real time text-based communication over the Internet. This method increased its popularity until popular social networks started taking its place in 2007.
I have contributed to the foundation and the maintenance of the first Italian IRC Network (Azzurra). I helped to develop its software, which is publicly available, and to administer its server. This hobby allowed me to learn a lot about programming and Unix administration and started my love for technology and computing and has driven my entire career.
The network can still be accessed through the following server: irc.azzurra.org.
For more information (in Italian) visit the Azzurra IRC Network website.
The IRC server software (which contains significant contributions made by myself) can be downloaded from Github.
