Announcement: Welcome!

Hi! You have reached the online home of Michael McCallister. I write about technology, software, and the Internet in a variety of venues. At this site, you can learn more about me and my life, buy my books, find where you can see me at any given moment, and read some thoughts on the writing life. My main blog, Notes from the Metaverse, continues on at WordPress.com.

This site is not-so-new anymore, but you’ll see changes in it from time to time, with a big one coming down the road.  Watch this space! I built this site myself, with the incredible assistance of the global WordPress community. Any errors on this page are mine alone. Spot something? Contact me.

By the way, if you’re looking for the former CEO of Humana Health, that’s someone else. I’ll stop there.

“Unlocking LinkedIn” Slides

Last week, I had the pleasure of presenting “Unlocking LinkedIn: Finding Your Dream Job or Client” to my favorite technical writing community, the Wisconsin chapter of the Society for Technical Communication.

Had to fight through Internet connection troubles, but it was a good conversation with the assembled technical writers.

Have a look at the slides, then use the comments to tell me your LinkedIn stories, or ask a question. I’m all ears.
