My name is Art Schrage (user ID: aschrage). I originally created the Board of Wisdom in August 2000 as a class project while I was in Carnegie Mellon's flextime MBA program.
There's nothing particularly "wise" about the site, but it's been a pleasant diversion for me over the years and I hope all who visit find it enjoyable.
Many thanks to my brother (user ID: eric_nd), who has put in an incredible amount of effort over the years to make the site what it is today. It certainly would not still exist without his efforts.
