Mario contributes to GNU Classpath and OpenJDK.

I'm an hacker, for fun and because it makes me feel free. I'm a musician too, for the same reasons. I love to live slowly, to take time to think about everything, to read, to think, to look the at sky at night and to be impressed by the Moon, wondering how it can be suspended that way without falling down. I like to walk on the promenade looking at the sea, up to the lighthouse in my city, where I can send special messages to the world in my favourite Porto bottle. I like to play my guitar while my brother sings.

I like to hack on GNU Classpath and OpenJDK and to be in touch with the Community. Of course, I use Linux and I aim for World Domination (tm). But when I'll get it, I'll simply throw all away and start all over again. I am an incurable romantic.
