Hello/Bonjour/Hola 🙂

Rosano here, mesmerized to meet you all.

My home base is Montreal, but I travel often.

I usually say I work at the intersection of music, design, and technology. After making my own iOS apps for almost a decade, I now find myself drawn towards the open web and federated systems. I have experience with the piano, drums, and a little Ableton. I learn languages to meet new people.

Super excited to collide with the particles in this glorious kaleidoscope.✌🏽

Put the iOS Phone app in a folder far away, bottom left slot now held by Anki.

Wondering if instead of saying 'train of thought' there's some part of the world that says 'sausage of thought'

Interesting ideas about making internet connectivity more accessible and equalized across the country from this Canadian progressive coalition movement couragecoalition.ca/communicat

For anyone familiar with Linguee - I just learned that they created their own translator which apparently outperforms Google's deepl.com/translator
