Introduction: My name is Andrea Grandi, I'm 28 and I live in Pistoia
(Tuscany, ITALY).
I'm a programmer, in particular very interested in Linux and opensource.
I've been working for some years as computer programmer, then I
decided to begin studing at university, and currently I'm attending at
"Università degli studi di Firenze" to get the Computer Science
I spend lot of my time to manage the Pistoia Linux User Group I
founded in 2001.

My life in community: I'm part of the community since I bought my
first Nokia 770.
I started contributing to the mailing lists, I wrote some tutorials
(in italian language, then I translated them to english) and I ported
SPIM (a MIPS emulator) to Nokia 770.
Later I had the possibility to buy a N810 and I was able to experiment
more with the Maemo SDK.
I was at the Maemo Summit in Berlin, doing a light talk about Maemo
development using Eclipse, PluThon and EsBox plugins.

Motivations: I really would like to be able to do more for the
community and one of the best way could be to be part of the council,
to help both users/developers to explain their requests to Nokia and
Nokia to understand the requests from the community. There are a lot
of fantastic ideas comung from the community that could improve what
we are doing: the key is to organize them and giving them more
This is what I've always looked for: working together to build something great!
