Welcome, Bienvenido, Benvenuto, Bienvenue, Willkommen
You have reached the personal website of Jorge Amodio also known as "pete".
For more than 40 years my professional career took me from digital electronics,
programming and system development, computer science and information technology,
telecommunications and large scale internetworking, engineering executive
management, and research & development.
I've been always using and promoting technology in the private and public sector,
from small startup companies to large corporations, and as a technical consultant
for international organizations such as the
United Nations and the Organization of
In the mid-eighties I was involved in the early steps of Internet in Argentina,
establishing the first international connection with SURANet/NSFNet while working at
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Argentina. For several years I was the technical
administrator of the AR Country Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD), Pioneer Member of the
nternet Society, founder and first
president of the Argentinean Chapter of the Internet Society, and I keep contributing
as a volunteer in different organizations and forums such as the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN),
the Internet Governance
Forum (IGF), the Internet Engineering Task
Force IETF), and the Internet Research Task Force,
In the mid-nineties while in Princeton, New Jersey, USA, I helped to complete the
transition of the old NSFNet to the private sector, particularly with JVNCNet regional
network, later operated by Global Enterprise Services (GES) becoming Director of
Engineering & Operations.
GES was later acquired by VERIO, Inc. which performed 50+ aquisitions of Internet Services
and Webhosting providers, where I assisted in the technical due diligence and integration
of acquired companies becoming Vicepresident of Engineering. After a succesful IPO in 1998,
VERIO got acquired in 2000 by NTT Communications Corp (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone),
I moved to work directly with the CTO in technology R&D, datacenter network arhitecture
design, networking equipment selection, purchase and service contracts negotiations, etc.
I also participated in the design of NTT's global VPN services and SLA infrastructure.
During the past 18 years, since we moved with the family to Texas, I've been doing
Research and Development of embedded microcontroller applications, working as an independent
About my hobbies, besides Electronics, I've been having fun with some retrocomputing
projects with old Personal Computers, collecting vintage test equipment, computers and
scientific calculators, and playing guitar.
For more than eight years I worked as Principal Engineer with Serious Integrated, Inc.,
I helped develop very innovative technologies for Human Machine Interface (HMI), advanced
industrial communications modules, IIoT and other embedded applications.
For several years I assisted the San Antonio Museum of Science and Technology, as a volunteer,
as a member of the Board of Directors, and until recetnly as their Chief Technology Officer.
I continue developing embedded microcontroller networked systems. Currently I'm doing R&D
in Delay and Disruption Tolerant Networking(DTN) and Bundle Protocols for application in Space
Communications and IoT.
In 2021 I joined Internet Society's
InterPlanetary Special Interest Group (IPNSIG).
I'm always looking for interesting job opportunities and projects where I can contribute my
technical experience and management skills. If you are interested to have a copy of my resume,
please don't hesitate to contact me.
If you want to get in touch or if I can be of any help feel free
to contact me via e-mail or through
other professional/social networking services.
