Checking In With Om Malik

Walt Mossberg and I had a lovely visit with Om Malik yesterday, a get-well-soon summit held at a Starbucks in San Francisco’s Financial District. It was the first time I have seen the well-liked tech blogger of GigaOm fame since he suffered a heart attack during the holidays.

Malik, who will not be smoking cigars any longer as he is pictured here, is newly out of the hospital and in rest-and-recovery mode.

While not ready to subject himself to the withering annoyance of BoomTown’s video–and don’t think I did not ask!–I can report that Malik looked quite spry and as relaxed as one can be, given the circumstances.

Everyone at AllThingsD.com wishes him well and looks forward to his quick and successful recuperation.
