The link is pointing to the very first article of the site, which I have written in order to present the site itself and its purposes. For you to surf the site properly, just start from the home page at https://www.dmi.unict.it/nfarceri.

You can think of this site as a little refuge, a shelter if you like more; a place for scholars and in general for people who seriously care about freedom in computing as well as in science and society.

Basically, you can do the following things on this site:

  • read news from the IT/CS world;
  • access an avalanche of useful links to various sites and resources;
  • consult blog articles and minibooks on varied topics related to the IT/CS world in general or to my research activities specifically;
  • getting various information and files concerning my personal projects and research activities, including published papers, source codes, datasets, etc…;
  • access the message area and read the discussions started by other users, but also read their comments left here and there among the pages of this site.

However, if you want to bring your experience to a true community level and still relive today the feeling of being part of a “homemade”, amateur, to some extent “familiar” and safe community, here’s what else you can do

  1. If you have a Mastodon account you can comment on some contents of the site. Don’t have a Mastodon account yet? –> https://scholar.social
  2. If you have a Lemmy account you can participate in discussions on the forums federated with this site. To create an account on Lemmy –> https://lemmy.ml/signup
  3. If you just want to chat without registration of any kind find out how to do it in https://www.dmi.unict.it/nfarceri?page=chatroom

Icing on the cake, you can do all this while…

…listening to a synthwave radio :-)

Looking forward to seeing you there ;-)
