My name is Luca Olivari, I'm a technology enthusiast living in Italy. I was born in 1979 and I've created this blog having in mind a nice place to share thoughts about Marketing, Communication, Advertising and other interestingness.
I'm currently working in Sun Microsystems as a Systems Engineer in MySQL Global Software practice (but that's my job) and in my spare time I read, take pictures, travel, run and surf web2.0 sites. I'm interested in technology, science, marketing, communication, advertising, picture, classic books and many other things.
