Hello and welcome to my small corner of the internet. Or home page. Permanently under construction, like myself.
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 I was 17 years old. In 2020 I took a break from coding full-time for a living so I can focus on some other things I am interested in.
I started CASA art retreat — a contemporary art space and rural retreat in Romania, in an old farm house I bought and restored.
I love playing music and I hope to one day record an album.
I collect art. Mostly works by contemporary Romanian painters, but not exclusively so. I do however try to only buy art from living artists that I know personally.
“Where are you from?” is a question that always confuses me.
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 love driving and riding motorbikes. I love visiting islands and flying.
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.
