The Blog

This blog focuses on Google products and technologies, living in the cloud, astronomy, and space. It also covers some of my other interests such as Python, digital publishing and self-publishing, blogging, content creation and monetization. What I’m not going to cover: politics.

My blogging journey started with the demise of Google+.

Paolo Amoroso

I’m an Italian astronomy and space popularizer, a Google expert, and a podcaster.

I have been doing astronomy and space outreach and education since the early 1980s, working at the Ulrico Hoepli Planetarium as well as the Brera Astronomical Museum in Milan. The activities I did range from lectures, observing sessions of the sky with Giovanni Virginio Schiaparelli’s historical 8” Merz telescope, guided tours of astronomical facilities and space exhibitions, to teaching astronomy at a Prada Foundation art exhibition.

I wrote the official Italian translation of the training and mission Logbook of ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti and the glossary of her autobiography, Diario di un’apprendista astronauta.

As part of my space outreach activities I have been a co-host of AstronautiCAST, the first Italian space podcast, since its beginning in 2007 and I’m a board member of AstronautiCAST’s parent organization ISAA, the Italian Space and Astronautics Association.

I have been a member of the Google Top Contributor Program and later the Product Experts Program since 2014. In 2016 Google invited me as a founding member of the Google+ Create program.
