Dear Mr. Klindzic,
I am only happy to give you a recommendation/reference regarding your Internet production.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
We at Croatia Net, the most comprehensive Internet production on Croatia in the USA, enthusiastically support Mr. Zeljko Klindzic's efforts to continue developing and expand his current Internet (web site) work. Our endorsement comes from continuously observing and evaluating many Croatian web sites, among which SBOnline is one of the best. More than several times, we have visited many of Mr. Klindzic's works and sometimes even with the help from eminent scholars, such as, dr. Peter Grantz, graphic designer; John Riker, M.A., communication expert; Eva van Schelldern, M.S., new media expert; Mathew Ivich, Ph.D., sociologist and ethnologist;, etc. In short, Mr. Klindzic's work is outstanding, from presentational and from technical perspectives.
SBONLINE IMPACT: Many of the SBOnline sites have a unique value as a Croatian cultural preservation and information center, available immediately to the entire world. Focusing on the Slavonski Brod region, from radio, news, events, tourism, etc. to such advanced topics as archaeological discoveries in the region, makes Mr. Klindzic's work shine over the Slavonian skies. Even larger centers, such as Zagreb or Osijek, currently do not come close to the quality and depth of the SBOnline productions. We can only wish that this trend in Mr. Klindzic's work continues for many years in the future.
SUMMARY: Slavonski Brod and its vicinity can be proud to be so well represented on the Internet. Compared to Slavonski Brod, a very few Croatian communities have an Internet representation of this quality and broad range. We strongly believe that any material or financial contribution to the producer will have an overall positive economic and cultural effect on the community. Comparing this solution to the cost-effectiveness of other media, and taking into account the future media trends, SBOnline is the best way to expose the beauty of this region and its people.
