The following bio is not endorsed by Mike Forbes!, because, amongst his many wonderful qualities, he is modest. Therefore his friends wish to toot his horn on his behalf.

Mike Forbes! is a rock of calmness and Getting Shit Done. Servers obey him; recalcitrant software bows before him. He knows everything that is worth knowing about good beer. He embraces drama and crises and smooths them into awesomeness by the power of his personality. He is kind, and patient, and friendly. He brings the magic. He is, in our considered opinion, a super awesome dude.
