Few years after he hacked Google.com (GWEI project with Alessandro Ludovico and ubermorgen.com) and Amazon.com (Amazon-Noir project with Alessandro Ludovico and ubermorgen.com) to raise awareness about the freedom of information in the corporate dot-com giants era. In 
the meanwhile he organized street-art happening and stole the identity of a Russian spy (The Big Plot project) to create a new form of narrative fiction.
