Hi Reinhard, all,
in one word, I really feel touched. All these positives votes let me
without words... I couldn't receive any better present for Christmas,
really!!!
Reinhard, Joerg, David, Leszek, Peter, Felix, Thorsten, Sylvain,
David, Steven, Ralph, Vadim: THANK YOU, it's incredible the trust
you're giving to me, I hope I'll never disappoint you.

About myself: I'm Italian, born and grown up in L'Aquila, a small
medieval city recently destroyed by the earthquake, and moved to Rome
at age of 24 after my B.Sc. graduation in Computer Science. I
experienced GIS, spent a lot of time on Shortest Path Algorithms, REST
services and since February 2007 I've been working as a software
engineer in Asemantics, a small company which focuses on new emerging
technologies/specifications, such OpenID, OAuth, PortableContacts and
the Semantic Web.
I joined the Cocoon ML since September 2008 after read an old
Reinhard's post[1] on his blog which charmed me: first I contacted him
privately, so I was invited to join the ML then been in touch also
with Steven... and every passing day I found the Cocoon3 idea so
brilliant that I couldn't resist to contribute!!!
I also play a lot writing my small reusable components[2] that help me
avoiding repeating myself in my everyday work :P

I'm used and love working in heterogeneous environments: at age of 22
I moved to Portugal for 6 months because of the Erasmus Project, I
participated in the Joost[3] backend development and since April 2009
I've been working on the Goom Radio[4] backend development; last, I
married a South-American woman, so every passing day of my life I have
to find the right compromises between different idioms and cultures :D

I accept very proudly my nomination, I already signed the ICLA because
last month I submitted a donation to the Apache Commons community and
they required it, and Rahul Akolkar confirmed it was registered.
My preferred id is simone.tripodi, and my forwarding email address is
simone[dot]tripodi[at]gmail[dot]com.

Thank you guys, the 2009 has been very difficult for me after the
earthquake, my parents still don't have their own home (you can see
the effects here[5]) so this Christmas will be better thanks to this
amazing news :)
Best regards, take care!!!
Simone Tripodi

Margin Note: in all European countries the name "Simone" is for girls,
except here in Italy; during the Erasmus I take part of a football
tournament, it was very funny looking amazed people's faces because
they expected looking a girl playing... :D
