I'm Valerio but call me boz.

I like wandering in it.wiki looking for some technical contributions. My bots also like running in Commons and Wikidata.

I hope I can help you! Feel free to leave a message in the talk page.

COI / NNPOVEdit

Let's spend some words about my non-neutral point of view and my conflict of interests.

  • I have an opinion on software freedom and libre contents and it's not that boring. TL;DR proprietary software works, but it's a bug. That's not the solution our society deserves.
  • sometime I host websites in my infrastructure as hobby, for friends. Warning: a wild CC BY-SA appears.
  • I'm in the board of:
    • Italian Linux Society (since 2021)
  • I'm a member of
    • Free Software Foundation
    • InFormAzionI
    • Wikimedia Italia
  • As volunteer I occasionally train some paid interns to help in localization and internationalization on Wikimedia projects. Read more.

  • I am hopelessly in love with someone registered in this wiki. We should not work together or we will smack smack smack instead of be serious and neutral.[1]

  • I'm hired full-time in a software house located in Torino as full stack web developer and GNU/Linux sysadmin. Core business: logistical support for the food industry. Occasionally, man for rent services.[2]
    Note: this IT company that can rent my body to other customers and when it happens I literally have no any financial benefit or any other benefit for whatever customer or organization I serve. I have no interest in seeing my boss earn more. The only benefit of these collaborations is terms of personal mental health and gratification for my public contributions, if these projects are interesting.
    With these premises, here some relevant organizations I'm serving / I served via that company, and their related projects:
    Wikimedia CH (Wikimedia CH/Tech boost)
    • WMCH Infrastructure – keeping some internal wikis up and running
    • WMCH Cronos – developing another MediaWiki-friendly calendar
    • Minipedia – developing a reduced Wikipedia in Italian language focused on accessibility
    Wikimedia Italia
    Landscapefor (Q65769810)
    • import of public domain data in Wikidata from their database (coordinates, label, description, street name, AtlasFor ID (P7004))

NotesEdit

  1. To verify my COI details follow these DYI steps:
    1. take your unix-like device (it seems it works on GNU+Linux and macOS)
    2. open your terminal emulator
    3. paste this command and press enter (it will not turn your device into a toaster, promise)
    4. follow instructions
    5. run again until satisfied
    clear; echo "Hi Sherlock! Type your Username (example: Foo Bar) and press ENTER" && read asd && [ "$(echo -n "$asd" | sha256sum)" = "4ed123d5690ea9d1bf23ae75b9a891e5995847e7b7780ca0b20720499b661412  -" ] && echo "Gotcha! I love [[User:$asd]]. I'm not prepared to this situation. Now I have to kill you, isn't it?" || echo "Green light! I actually do not love [[User:$asd]] (whaaat?) so we can work together on your holy-nuclear super-sensitive wiki project. Whoa! Sigh of relief... but you came very close!"

    Please note how my mind is totally fucked up due to a potential conflict of interest. Anyway this is not a secret. I just love transparency while this is just my own business.

  2. This is not my curriculum or an advertising place. I don't want to diffuse the name of my company here. Anyway it's the ER Informatica (Emilio Ravotti Informatica). You should be able to find some information about it using your favorite search engine. To avoid promoting his SEO I will not put links here.
