Flick & Share webapp
Flick and Share it’s a free web service that allows Flickr users to generate a short-link to automatically download all their set’s pictures in high-resolution. Generated links are private but can be shared with friends, on social network or just used for personal backup. The project has received some coverage (lifehacker, thenextweb and more) and currently has over 10K users and a huge number of pictures shared daily.
Randy’s Pausch “last lecture” in Italian
On September 18, 2007, computer science professor Randy Pausch stepped in front of an audience of 400 people at Carnegie Mellon University to deliver a last lecture called “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams”. I’ve become fascinated with this lecture and after Randy lost his battle to cancer I’ve decided to caption it so Italian friends and family could enjoy it too. Just this version has been viewed more the 13K times and across the world million of people became influenced by Randy’s legacy.
A web site made available for an introductory lesson on computer security for high school students. It’s a “try-to-hack” challenge (in Italian, sorry!) on various flawed password-protected web pages. More challenge were also made for the “computer security” course, those are available inside a virtual environment where students can freely try to “break” various VMs. Learn more about the course by visiting Riccardo Focardi‘s page.
Remotely checking your internal IP
This is a simple “utility” web page that checks out the connecting host local IP thanks to a Java applet and thus can answer the question “is this host behind some sort of NAT?”. I’ve built the webpage just for fun but around 6K people use it every year so I’ve left it online.
Flickr & Last.fm mashup on Symbian
During my studies in Copenhagen I developed a prototype mobile app with a team of 4 international students. This software (written in Python for Symbian 3rd Ed Platform) aim is to take advantages from the mobile platform, the GPS, the wireless connectivity and the web 2.0 user-power of last.fm and ﬂickr services to provide a cool mash-up that offers relevant context-based data to the user.
