Hello and welcome to my small corner of the internet. Or home page. Permanently under construction, like me.

About me

My name is Ioan Bizău (read Yi-wan Bee-zau), aka Ionuț (read Yoh-noots).

I’ve been a programmer most of my life, working professionally since 2003. Since 2009 I’ve been working for various startups: App Annie, Triposo and F2Pool. My current interests in this field are mostly around Bitcoin. In 2020 I took a break from coding for a living to do some other things I am interested in.

I started Casa de Cultură, a contemporary art space and rural retreat in Romania, in an old farm house I bought and restored.

In the last few years I’ve gotten more into music.

I can be everywhere, but I like to be in one place at the time.

I like to take things slowly. Not “visiting” a country, but rather moving there for a while. I prefer to travel by train and bicycle but I also like driving and riding motorbikes very much.

I like building physical things. As much as I liked programming as I grew up, I realized that technology is just a means to an end. We should be building tools that help us live a better life in the physical world and help us build better communities. Technology for the sake of it is a waste of time.

I speak 6 languages.
