Denis Roio (also known as Jaromil) is a free software programmer, media artist and activist. He has made significant contributions to the development of multimedia and streaming applications on the Linux platform. He was born in Pescara, Italy and now lives in Amsterdam, Netherlands while completing his Ph.D research at the Planetary Collegium M-Node.[1]

He is one of the authors of the dyne:bolic Linux distribution, and of various free software projects, including MuSE and FreeJ.

His artistic creations are related to the context of netart and software art; the code :(){ :|:& };: has been said to be "the most elegant fork bomb code ever written".[2] However, this code existed on the internet long before he published it as art; the original author is unknown.

In 2000 Jaromil started the dyne.org foundation under the flag of Freedom of Creation, playing hybrid between the fields of politics, art and technology.
