Amazon author bio

Share

Amazon wanted an author bio for their Amazon Connect program which I thought I would give a try. Here’s what they got:

Michael Still released his first Open Source project in July 2000, and has been actively developing ever since. He has had a variety of articles published by IBM DeveloperWorks, and once made a Tux out of fairy lights. He is the author of the recently published “Definitive Guide to ImageMagick” from Apress. His gym program states his exercise goal as “develop laser death vision”. Michael grew up in Canberra, Australia but now lives and works in Silicon Valley for Google with his wife and two kids. Michael is a past committee member of AUUG, Linux Australia, and the linux.conf.au 2005 committee.
