Hi! Welcome to my blog, which is now a bare test – for now.
Just to make the idea of with are you talking to: I’m Enrico and I’m an italian Electronic Engineer. I like very much the world of embedded systems and electronics in general, but also all tech improvements. Not an interest just for work or study purposes, but it is also a passion.
That interest is almost innate (note: the interest, not the knowledge..!), I can remember when I was only 3 or 4, something like: “how the heck that box can contain a person inside! Oh, and those light are very small!”.
The mistery was a box called Television and those lights were the pixels of the CRT (did you still have one of those?). I don’t think was so healty watching ’90s CRTs so close. But that is for science. “Science isn’t about WHY. It’s about WHY NOT.“, as Cave Johnson said here. And now I wear glasses. Sh*t.
Anyway, growing up that electronic geek interest was still there and I went to a Polytechnic University in Turin. Between an exam and another, I discovered that there is a lot of stuff that I will never do at university or work, normally. The “purpose of life” of this blog is just to present what this stuff could be: projects that inspire me, designs that came from heart and not from wallet, studies that make me feel satisfied. – And if everything is made in a good way, all of this translates in something that may become useful to someone. But the fuel to keep this blog active is its importance to remember me to finish what I started, and to keep trace of my projects. – To traveling better through one shade of my past.
I will avoid to say things like I wish to help the human knowledge, create innovation, work to make the world a better place, dying leaving a good improvement to the world etc etc, because I feel them as obvious. I like also talk about things that I can barely conceive… and this is a problem, I know. But after all, I’m the average guy, who tries to live by splitting his life between hobbies, friends, career and family. Unsuccessfully, of course, unsuccessfully, like an average guy who need to compromise.
As a conclusion, I think that discussing things in a blog which is public, if someone is interested, ideas can grow up in a snow-ball fashion. At least in theory. At least this is how recent history taught.
