JODI's autograph

Last Saturday 28 March I went to the opening of JODI's exhibition at Project Gentili in Prato and I met them.
On this occasion they put their autograph on my book.


How to become the biggest fan of Tokio Hotel at the time of Web 2.0

How to become the biggest fan of Tokio Hotel at the time of Web 2.0
An internet performance by Luca Leggero (LUNK)
Hosted for three days by S.A.L.E. at AHA Camping

The performance

On October 1st, 2008 I'm going to sign up on social network with the nickname "fuko666", and I'm going to listen only to Tokio Hotel music for a month in order to become their greatest fan.

What is and how does it work is a community website, founded in 2002.
Using a music recommendation system called "Audioscrobbler", builds a detailed profile of each user's musical taste by recording details of all the songs the user listens to, either on the streamed radio stations or on the user's computer or some portable music devices. This information is transferred to's database ("scrobbled") via a plugin installed into the user's music player. The profile data is then displayed on the user's profile page. The site offers numerous social networking features and can recommend and play artists similar to the user's favourites.
