One of my favourite activities is being an institutional hacker: a person approaching institutions with a hacker mentality, trying to understand its workings and internal mechanisms, and then to use them for his own objectives, following his ideas.
In this field, I am particularly busy with Internet governance - the set of rules, activities and attitudes that determine its functioning and shape its development. Thus, I have collected here some resources for those who are interested in this matter (starting with a tiny set, but more will come).
My blog devoted to news and comments about the governance of the Internet, and specifically the processes in which I am directly involved.
An introductory guide to Internet Governance to better understand the basics (Italian only, for the moment).
A special section devoted to my participation in the Board of ICANN, the organization overseeing the domain name system on a global scale.
The archive of my writings about this matter, from the "Documents" section of the site.
The final results of ICANN's At Large elections held in year 2000 (first phase), from the site I had published at that time; you can also download the day by day archive.
My shameless candidacy statement from the year 2000 elections (kept for historical reasons only).
