My name is Bernie Michalik. I live in Toronto, Canada and work at IBM. What am I interested in? Well, just about anything!
I used to send interesting links and information to my friends on a distribution list I had called “smart people I know”. Eventually I decided to simply collect the information I was emailing and blog it here instead. That’s why it has the name it does.
Over at my Posterous blog I keep more of a notebook where I try to write out longer pieces that are more introspective and creative and less a response to things I come across. I also keep a Tumblr/Tumble log which pulls together my twitter feed and highlights postings I make from other parts of the web.
You can find out more about me here: http://berniemichalik.wordpress.com, and of course you can always use Google.
You can also comment on any page, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While I typically stay away from IT related topics on this blog, you should know that the opinions expressed on this site are my own and do not necessarily represent those of my employer.
Finally, I appreciate you taking the time to visit and read the blog. I hope you found it worthwhile.
P.S. The banner is a printout from some tests they did on my heart: there is an irregular beat on number 13.
