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, a popular room rental website. 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.
