This is how the gravestone of a HUMAN in the virtual world can look like. During the night from 17–18 of December, someone stole my LINKEDIN identity and this is what shows up instead.
There have been signs the day before, that something is wrong, but using the LI as one of the main online tools and knowing that GOOGLE, FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM face troubles day before I considered it is the result of the problem, but it was not.
It is funny because it happens on the same day where my blog published two articles
- English named WE ARE NOT LIVING IN DIGITAL WORLD
- Czech named JAZYK EFEKTIVITY (The language of efficiency)
It was just four days after I published my keynote aimed at the POLITICS IN THE AGE OF INDUSTRY 5.0.
It reminds me strongly of the times when I began my WASTELESS WORLD JOURNEY already delivering and reporting about the significant changes that systematic waste prevention in the forms of INDUSTRIAL UPCYCLING and later INDUSTRY 5.0 deliver. At that time the company web www.ibcsd.biz was under so strong hacking attacks that the web admin says he has never in more than a decade of his work seen anything similar. Most of the attacks came from Russia, China, and the USA.
It took him several months to stop this and in the meantime, I have learned to utilize other media to communicate with clients and partners.
After that few more waves came, but without significant damage.
Today, I am facing a trial to damage the tool of my work again, after almost five years.
In contrary to the physical tools that I use in my work, the virtual ones are in hands of someone else. I can not just simple repair it, switch it with another, use some spare, there is none because it is in hands of someone else and this is the main danger and risk of life in the virtual world, we do not have it in our hands, because we gave it in the hands of someone else.
Maybe this is the reason why the boards held in the hand of FRIDAY FOR FUTURE and EXTENTION REBELLION say all the time
WHAT YOU WILL DO TO SAVE OUR FUTURE
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO SAVE THE FUTURE
My virtual identity on the professional social network, where my for a decade build-up network consist of more than 11.000 members was erased and instead of delivering many results, it delivers just one
It seems like a decade of my work was lost, but not only I believe it would be restored, but I do believe it will be even stronger after that. I was expecting similar, after the first wave of hacker attacks and this is why I did not rely on one tool only and spread my work between many. Websites, Social Media, Images, Videos, Texts, Blogs, and what is most important I leave pieces of me in everyone I speak to or interact with changing her or his mindset from wasteful to wasteless, recognizing the potential.
Today in the afternoon I should be the keynote speaker in the first of global meetups called CONNECT TO INNOVATE organized by Armela Totaj, Finish leader which recognized how powerful the INDUSTRY 5.0 and the tools of systematic waste prevention are if applied correctly.
I hope everything would be fine and I would be able to log to the event to speak there, but if there would be any issue the backup plan is ready, my keynote was already recorded on my youtube channel and can be made public immediately, if needed and I can connect by phone.
A day before publishing this article on January 6th, 2021 another article would be published named HUMAN IN HUMANITY. I wrote a few days ago and I feel both resonate strongly together. I do believe I am not the only one who feels that.
In the end, I would like to point out one of my observations. More than 6 years ago I ask LINKEDIN ADMINS to remove part of the information connected to my profile, which I was not able to remove by myself and need approval. It took 3 years. Six months ago I have asked LINKEDIN ADMINS to run LIFE VIDEO TALKS on LINKEDIN until today I get no reply.
How it can happen that an active member account, build up for more than a decade can be just deleted without any notice in a few hours?
I hope the temporary loss of my LINKEDIN identity did not negatively influence you and your business. If so I do apologize and offer you to use other tools to communicate, the best you be Face to Face in my small WorkPlace in the city of Plzen, in the Heart of Europe on planet Earth.
Have a nice day and don't forget, to build and protect your Physical world, because you can touch it every single day of your life without worrying that someone else will turn it off.

P.S. My account was recovered and restored 13 hours later with no explanation of how this can happen. I asked the support on what to do to avoid similarly and still wait for the answer.
