This is the private blog of Matthias Schmidt.

Why Matkoya?

Mat, because my name is Matthias and Koya, because I have been living in Koyasan, Wakayama, Japan. for about 17 years. Recently I moved back to Germany.

I’m a 4D database programmer, Yoga-teacher, Karate student and Shingon partitioner.

If you’re interested in one of these, just drop me a line.

Thank you for visiting this site.

  2. Hello Mat,
    It was so nice to meet and talk to you yesterday at Koyasan. Thank you so much for your time, tea with sweets and very scholarly opinion.

    Am back to Nagoya yesterday and joined university office today. Will keep in touch.
    With due respect, Him

  3. Hi ,

    I noticed you link to DuckDuckGo, which is my favorite search engine because they focus their attention on privacy. You link to them from this page on your site BTW:

    I think that switching from Google to DuckDuckGo is only the first step in knowing what alternatives are available for other Google services, like Gmail, YouTube etc,

    I was part of the team that created this article about the best existing alternatives for Google, and I wanted to ask you if you would be willing to share it on that page of yours with your users. This way, they will know they have alternatives that are maybe smaller and less known but that try to make a living in the shadow of the internet giant called Google.

    Please help out and let’s support ProtonMail, Vimeo, FireFox and the rest of the alternatives.

    Thanks in advance,
