You just entered an overwhelming, mindblowing, and confused space inside the immense wonderland of the World Wide Web. This place is a perpetual work in progress populated by thoughts, drivel, visions, questions, sort-of-answers, kinda-intuitions, contraddictions, disorderly attempts of reordering stuff, representations of chaos.
Welcome to the virtual representation of Tommi’s mind.
Hey, I’m Tommi.
In one word, I am an enthusiast. Who I am is best represented by the manifesto of my being, or Tomminess.
I really do not know what else to write without ending up with a stream of blabbering words. To know me better just wander around here. Don’t be surprised and pardon me if many things are incomplete and messy.

Since March 2021, I deleted all my profiles on social media—with the exception of Linkedin (for the moment).
I firmly believe that the reasons of my choice are not merely personal, but they are universal! What is personal is the weight that each and everyone of us gives to the pro and cons of these platforms. After weighting all the factors on my personal weight, I would not stand the anxiety social media cause(d) me. I grew extremely intolerant to social media enshittification, so I quit.
Still, I also wanted to push as many people as possible to at least learn more about this. Therefore, to foster questioning of social media starting from a unique—yet comprehensive and reliable—source, I created quitsocialmedia.club. There, I gathered all the worrisome issues of social media, together with related articles, videos or even research.
For better or worse, a lot has changed since I created the website: its content and its arguments could be relatively obsolete or limited. In any case, I still think that exploring quitsocialmedia.club could be a great starting point to approach this critical topic.
At the same time, my thinking matured, too. Nurtured by readings, lectures, research, and dialogues my opinion matured. Essentially, I became more conscious of the intersectionality of the fights I support. My thesis goes deeper, investigating the problem at the root of all the ones tackled by Quit Social Media, also by proposibg a new Socio-Philosophical approach to Computer Sciences. Recently, I conceived and I am taking around the world a workshop to foster collective reflections and participatively theorize new solutions. I would love for you to invite me to do the workshop somewhere, but you could even do it by yourselves!
I am not a Luddist, condemning contemporary technology no matter what. I am not a mysanthrope out of the world, either. I proudly use alternative, decentralized social networks che condanna a priori la tecnologia, né un misantropo fuori dal mondo, perciò utilizzo orgogliosamente social network alternativi, decentralizzati e autogestiti. Mi trovate nel Fediverso e non aspetto altro che qualcunə mi contatti per parlarne!
Sconnesso è uno pseudo-podcast in cui Tommi racconta alcune peripezie che accadono nella sua vita saltellante e elucubrazioni che affollano la sua mente contorta.
Sconnesso è sbagliato, ma non scorretto. È atipico, ma non poi così originale. È curato, ma non studiato certosinamente. È esasperante, ma mai noioso. È improvvisato, ma non raffazzonato. Non è preparato, ma è attentamente pensato. È confuso e disordinato, ma non complicato. È sconnesso, ma non disconnesso.
There’s stuff I find out I wish I knew before, or stuff I just can’t keep from sharing but it’s not enough to make an article, or resources so great and useful that the whole world should know and use, or cool oddities I note and it’s nice to have them always ready at hand.
I take this things, I throw them into The Jam.
I hope it can be useful to you.
