Dear contacts, I have listened to a great talk by Luis Suarez at the International Enterprise 2.0 forum in Varese this week. And I have taken a decision, after his talk: I do not want to waste time with email anymore. Tomorrow ESSAP will start and it will be definitely a long week, and afterwards I have to concentrate on my PhD dissertation writing. So, until the end of October I will adopt a very strict email policy, that I describe here: the link will be in my email signature.
First of all, I'm unsubscribing to every mailing list I ever had, at least in my mind. So what? Simply I do not read anymore mailing list messages. If you have a project to take over with me, consider that wikis are far more efficient than mailing lists. You can open one for free at PBWiki, that let users have full control on their privacy policies, if you want to do so.
For meeting arrangement with me, please invite me using Google Calendar. I check it at least once per day - I have a moleskine with me so to drop a note on paper when I'm not online, but it's like a backup.
If you want to send me a document I should edit, don't send it to me as an email attachment. Again, use a wiki or invite me to share a Google Doc, if you have to make a presentation collectively (I've just done it for the summer school with colleagues and it was great). Attachements are bad way to manage collaborative writing.
I do use only one blog, this one. I don't want to waste time taking care to multiple blogs (It's simply nonsensical for me; the only posts I publish elsewhere are about the permalink of this blog!).
If you want to share an experience, consider to write a blog post of your own and send the url via instant messanging to me, or, if related to a blog post of mine, write the url as a comment. You will find me quite easily via Skype. I own a skypephone, so I don't need to be sit in front of my laptop. In that way you will know if I want to be interrupted or not. Sometime you will also find me at GTalk, but more and more with less frequency. In any case, I will tell you where I am, more than what I'm doing.
When I'm off line, you can find me for professional topics at LinkedIn (more frequently) or Naymz (look at this account, there is another one I couldn't switch off!). For personal topics, look into Ipernity (especially if you are an Esperantist) or Facebook, more rarely in Hi5.
Last not least, I'm fond of books, so you can share experiences or suggestions through Anobii. That's the only focused social network I take part. I won't subscribe to any other social networks anymore, sorry. I think you can join one of the above, they are all quite popular and easy to use, and more or less translated in your favorite languages.
This email policy will last until October 2008, when hopefully I would have finished my PhD dissertation. Afterwards? Stay tuned!

Annuncio spostamento blog
Ho deciso di muovere la mia pagina web accademica e il mio blog in un posto unico, e ho scelto di fare un blog e il sito con l'hosting gratuito su wordpress. Per favore, aggiornate i vostri feed reader al seguente indirizzo:
Se mai cambierò di nuovo, aggiornerò il feed, così voi non vi accorgerete di nulla. Analogamente, mi sono deciso a comprare un dominio che rimarrà anch'esso permanente:
Tutto ciò che ho pubblicato sul blog di Blogspot rimarrà intatto perché già riferito nel web, perciò non ha senso toglierlo. Per non perdermi di vista, potete farvi vedere in qualche social network. Quelle a cui partecipo sono tutte listate a questo indirizzo.
Blog Change News
I moved my academic web page and my blog in one place, and they are both hosted (i.e., web page and blog) with the free hosting by wordpress. Please, update your feed readers with the following:
If I would ever change again, I will update the feed, so you won't notice. Analogously, I finally decided to buy a domain for me. This will act as a permanent url:
Every post I published in the Blogspot blog will remain here as it is already spidered by the web. If you want to be in touch with me, consider to knock me via some social network. Mine are listed here.
Ŝanĝo de blogmotoro
Mi portis mian universitatanan tekstejon kaj mian blogon al ununura ejo, ambaŭ gastigitaj de Vordpreso. Bonvolu aktualigi vian rettralegilon al la sekva treleg-adreso:
Se mi volus ŝanĝi denove ejon, mi aktualigos la traleg-adreson, tiel ke, vi eĉ ne notos la ŝanĝon. Simile, mi finfine min decidis aĉeti porĉiaman ttt-adreson por mi:
Ĉiu blogaĵo kion mi eldonis per Blogspoto restos tie ĉar jam araneigita ttt-e. Se vi volas resti en kontakto kun mi, frapu al iu socia reto kiun mi partoprenas. La kompletan liston vi trovas tie ĉ.
