Principles

It's Web 1.0 here

At this Facebook-powered era of pervasive social networks, it may look weird to have such an old-style personal homepage. Privately hosted, green on black, no "I like" buttons, no mobile version: it all evokes the first personal homepages back in mid-1990s. Welcome to Web 1.0! Indeed, my homepage exists since 1996 and I intentionally maintain this MS-DOS style because this is the only way to control the content. I set design without pre-defined templates. I upload anything I want without complying with other people's policies. No tracking here. No contextual ads.  No bullshit.

I hate that "small web within the Web" concept created by social networks. I believe that on Internet all resources should remain easily accessible without forcing users to sign up with a ring-fenced club run by third parties.

Last but not least, when I leave this world, this webpage will automatically disappear after a while, so these lines will not hang around eternally while their author will have turned to a handful of ashes.

No social broadcasting

I have no presence on social networks with the only exception of the professional LinkedIn. If you see my name on one of those platforms, please be aware that this must be a phishing occurrence.

I am not broadcasting my life urbi et orbi. I love real life and real emotions.

My instant messaging policy

I don't use WhatsApp, Viber and alike, though I am considering this option. I am only present on Skype for family and friends. I prefer email, but I also use mobile phone, landline phone, SMS, iMessage, FaceTime — it's more than enough for an efficient communication. 

My LinkedIn policy

On LinkedIn I only accept connection requests from people I personally know. We should have seen/heard/read each other before we can connect. Please be aware of this fact if you realise your connection request was left without answer.

My privacy policy

I don't publish any private information about other people. 

My domain policy

I acquired kobzar.be many years ago and I intend to keep it. I use this domain for personal email hosting, this homepage, protected storage area, etc. This domain is not for sale, nor is it for commercial use.
