Welcome to Marco Fioretti's website!
I am a freelance writer, activist and teacher about open digital standards, Free Software, digital technologies and their relation and impact on education, ethics, civil rights and environmental issues. I teach, write, speak in public and sometimes work on projects about all these topics.
