Marko Puljić

Marko's story is similar to those of many other Croats of his time. He was born and immediately thereafter, joined the struggle to attain Croatian independence. 

Once Croatian independence had been achieved he asked himself "now what?" and discovered life and something called the Internet. He began to experiment with websites and started to see the power and the reach of the information age. He began to see it as a tool for linking together and communicating with fellow Croats around the world.  As the potential of the Internet continued to grow he began to try and promote Croatia and Croatians using this new medium. 

Somewhere along the way he met Nenad, the future creator of Croatian World Net and was asked to participate with articles and help in general tasks. With the launch of the revised Croatian World Net website that now stands before you, he was again asked to play a role in it.  

The digital world is not exclusively Marko's medium of choice. He is an author and has had articles published in a wide array of publications from student papers to popular media like the Croatian Chronicle. Marko also has had translations published in both electronic media and in traditional print. The only thing Marko has to do is, publish a book, and he doesn't rule it out - except he doesn't know what he would write about!

Aside from the media Marko tries to keep his mind active and tries to get out as often as he can. His hobbies, or at least what he calls his hobbies, are too numerous and would potentially brand him a geek if he mentioned them.
