Michele Minno is a software engineer focussed in Semantic Web research and technologies. He published in several academic and technology conferences. He's currently working for the italian IT company Pro-netics as research projects responsible. He is leader of one of the work packages of the European project NoTube, about user profiling and media recommendations based on Linked Data and Social Web, besides being involved and contributing to other research projects. He is interested in speeding up the paradigm shift about data from a machine-oriented to a human-oriented perspective, and in creating real shared re-usable aggregated knowledge among people and computer applications.

He's having a life long effort to expressing my creative energies in different fields. The creative process usually comes after a deep understanding of the field of interest, the ideas behind, the purposes. He can't fit among engineers, nor among designers, marketing guys or (copy)writers. He'd like to be something of all of them. His main objective is to think and realize something (it could be a web application) used by people, that would bring them to think or act in a different way, due to the interaction flows involved and the behaviors triggered. Got very close to that working for the Asemantics company on 99ways.
