Welcome, my name is Francis (or František) Malina and I am a software engineer, entrepreneur
and creator of Blocl, a community services directory, and
Flatmate Rooms, which was a popular UK nationwide room rental website and online letting agency
offering rooms to rent.
I build software and automate business processes and I train and advise people on how to do it.
Thanks to Unilexicon,
I am considered a world renowned expert in knowledge organisation systems and thanks to creating
Unilexicon for Medicines
I get to help pharmacists and pharma companies in their daily job.
When not getting some innocent adrenaline fix I am usually found in cafes,
home and on client sites working on web systems and software,
typing into the terminal, text editor or consulting on the phone.
My religious beliefs are based on my mathematical and spiritual findings
I outlined in a short
essay about God's plan.
Working remotely, used to travel to stay near client sites.
I am Slovak/Moravian 🇸🇰 of origin,
lived in England for 15 years and returned to Slovakia.
See my CV.
What I look like.

an information architect, and helped with taxonomy design and development.
