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 2003. 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.
I love playing music, although I don’t do it as much as I would like to.
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 love driving and riding motorbikes. I love islands and I fly a lot.
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.
See my “now” page.
