Blue Board outsourcer info (5 to 10 entries):  His work is so good that, according the editor, you hardly need a proofreader.

Alberto Rondina: Canon thinkdigital makes for a challenging job: the material is technical in nature and the writing style does not shy away from the occasional word pun. Tommaso is always up to the challenge
