As a computer geek I should have my own email address, and by my own, I mean my own domain on it. There are many benefits:
- For a software engineer it looks more professional. Proves she/he has knowledges of things like DNS, MX, … . It is not as strong a proof as a diploma or certification but it helps.
- Because it gives me control. I can host my own email server or use someone else service e.g. Google Apps or Kolabnow.
So my new email address is michal [fancy email symbol] parusinski [like a comma but round] me.
And I have a PGP key attached to my email address: EB8B9B2C
