Marco Iannacone was born in Milano (Italy) in 1969: same year of first human Lunar landing, several months before first UNIX release, 2 years before Ray Tomlinson sent the first e-mail message and Captain Crunch had a cheap long distance call, 7 years before Woz made amazing things with 1Mhz CPU, and 15 years before copyleft creation.

Marco is among the first italian bloggers (started in early 1996), and for a long time he has been considered one of the Italian expert for Linux.
He was trained by the Israeli Company Xpert Unix System (at that time one of the most qualified company in networking and security technologies).

Among his first early experiences we can mention the design and implementation of several Internet Providers and some complex Intranet/Extranet services During the '90 he was also Technical Editor for several italian magazines, among which: Inter.Net, HighTech Server e Apogeo

Marco is NOT an Engineer but he is interested in everything with a working CPU.
