Hi! As you very likely already know, my name is Emanuele and I am a human
being. As you might not know, I work as a Site Reliability Engineer
at Wikimedia Foundation
focusing on Traffic Engineering for Wikipedia and other Wikimedia sites. I
have been a member of the Debian GNU/Linux project
since 2003. Let's walk through a list of links about myself of debatable
In decreasing order of likelihood, you are here because:
- You are a robot. Hello friendly robot!
- You have attended a presentation of mine and I told you to come here
for the slides. Hopefully the talk was good! Look further down.
- We know each other and you have searched for my web page. Hi there! Sorry about the web page.
- You want to send me an email, but you do not know my email address. That is "ema at linux dot it". If you want to send an encrypted message, here is my PGP key.
- You were looking for the Italian football player named Emanuele Rocca
and ended up here instead. I am not saying that is unlikely (on the
contrary!) but I am sure those looking for the player have stopped
reading like, immediately.

My Erdős number is 5 thanks to the above publication:
Thilo Kielmann -> Willem Jan Fokkink -> Robbert J. Fokkink -> Jeffrey
O. Shallit -> Paul Erdős.
Further, I have performed as an extra in a movie featuring Maximilian Dirr, meaning that my Bacon number is 3:
Maximilian Dirr -> Donald Sutherland -> Kevin Bacon.
At parties, I can thus impress people by saying that my Erdős–Bacon number is 8.
