A fresh start with my new job at Funambol

I haven’t been updating the blog too much in the past week and the reason is that I have a new job as community manager at Funambol. The company develops the free/libre software Funambol application server (formerly known as Sync4j). The server allows mobile backup and PIM synchronization to contacts, calendars, tasks, notes and other data, push email (blackberry-like), mobile device management to manage cell phones remotely.’  Funambol also has clients for most cell phones available on the market.

The software allows also extensions, as plug-ins and connectors. One of my duties will be to help external developers to contribute plug-ins like the iPhone, Yahoo and Gmail connectors.

The office is in Pavia, which is 45 minutes away from my home in Milano. The company is located in Redwood, California, giving the international touch I like in this creative Italian venture.

I am already getting used to the new rhythm and in the next days I’ll start posting more regularly.

  2. A proposito di nermui verdi e chiamate, scusa se scrivo questo messaggio senza un vero email, ma purtroppo ho ricevuto una multa dalla Regione per un vecchio bollo non pagato (mea culpa). Ho notato che i costi per richiedere via telefono delle informazioni sono proibitivi e mi chiedo come mai non abbiano istituito un numero verde anche per questo, la mora e8 abbastanza alta di per se8, per cui i costi delle chiamate telefoniche verso il loro Call Center non sono per nulla ragionevoli, le riporto (sono iva esclusa):(*) scatto alla risposta 5,16 €(-) dal lun.-ven. : 11,88 € al minuto dalle 8:00 alle 18:30; 4.64 € dopo le 22(-) 4,65 € la domenicaSettimana scorsa ho ricevuto una multa di 35€ per aver pagato il bollo del 2004 con un centesimo * piu’ * del dovuto
