7 Things You May (Or May Not) Know About Me

This post was migrated from my old blog. Some links might not work.

Yay! Thanks Patrick. Now I’m one of the cool kids too! :) I know you’d all like to see this in Polish, but…

The rules:

  1. Link to your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post.
  2. Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
  3. Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
  4. Let them know they’ve been tagged.

Seven things:

  1. After doing a minor in literature and linguistics (mostly Polish) in high school, I took the university exams at Warsaw School of Economics, which I passed by 2% (I almost failed maths), just to finish the major in statistics and econometrics last year.
  2. Working for Mozilla is my first real job, although I did work on localization for Novell for some time in the past.
  3. I kinda like France :) I lived there for almost two years, first as a foreign exchange student, and then after finishing my studies.
  4. I don’t eat potatos, the nutritional foundation of the Polish cuisine. Makes things tricky.
  5. I become addicted to TV series very easily. Not just the ones that are aired currently. You know, I still watch ER season 1 from time to time.
  6. My last name (małolepszy) meant executioner in medieval Poland. And by the way, it’s pronounced similar to [mawolepsh].
  7. I’m a usability and user experience freak, especially when it comes to urban planning and micro- and macro-architecture. It must have something to do with me living and growing up in Warsaw, a city heavily experienced by history and rebuilt almost from scratch by the communist government after the war. I could dwell on this for hours, so I’ll better stop right now :)

And now, The Magnificent Seven (in no particular order):

  • Pascal, who brought me closer to Mozilla by taking me as an intern in Paris in summer 2007,
  • Gandalf, who is somewhere in the U.S. right now,
  • Marcoos, the guy responsible for Polish l10n of a browser used by ~44% of Polish Internet users,
  • Delphine, who recently started in Mozilla full-time (congrats!),
  • Carine, who should be in Poitiers right now,
  • Krst, who needs to start blogging more,
  • and last by not least, Seth, who has a cool blog (hey man, this is mine, come visit! :)

You have been tagged. You know the rules. Pick up the baton and good luck!
