Hello my wikifriend!

I'm Valerio. Call me boz, please.

Most of my time I try to free people. Basically I end up just asking others not to enslave me, please :)

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


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

  • I strongly promote software freedom and libre contents. Trust me.
  • Sometime I host websites for friends in my infrastructure. People usually pay me in pizza or cookies and accept to release contents in CC BY for this veeeery professional service. Sometimes they (friends) even try to give me money but I immediately convert them (money) in biscuits and pizza or I see these money disappear in taxes and hosting fees. Anyway. I am not interested in spreading these websites (the more are visited the more they cost to me! asd) but I'm interested in stealing ehm taking their in-c:COM:SCOPE materials and uploading them to Wikimedia Commons or Wikidata etc.[1]
  • I'm in the board of:
    • Italian Linux Society (since 2021)
  • I'm a member of
    • Free Software Foundation
    • InformAzioni
    • Wikimedia Italia
  • I was coordinating some paid translators to translate some Wikimedia websites. I used this despicable power to boost boring translations. 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 working and we may not be so productive.[2]

  • 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.[3]
    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))


Something does not work? Questions? Two words about Free Software? Just drop me an e-mail.

  1. An example of these websites is - CC BY-SA source of high-quality pictures about analog clocks, created by a friend and hosted by me
  2. Awwww awesome! Welcome in a conflict-of-interest-love-roulette! To discover my lovely conflict of interest follow these 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.

  3. 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.
