Bright Guy

Cool facts on just about everything

About Us...

Bright Guy's purpose is to inspire our readers.  To instil curiosity, further research and, hopefully, learning.  Established in 2000, with full-scale online operations commenced in 2004 we've been working diligently on this mission.  In 2005, Bright Guy merged with BB Educational Resources.

Bright Guy has evolved since its inception.  The 'aha', energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulb reinforces our commitment to the ever-changing scientific field.  We believe the newest logo fully captures our organization's essence including the 'B' and 'G' of Bright Guy, the 'G' and '?' form a light bulb with the 'B' as the filament.  The '?' reinforces the natural curiosity of our organization and, hopefully, our visitors.  Lastly, the shape of the unified 'G' and '?' form a shape similar to a cross-section of the human brain including the medulla and spinal cord.  We hope you like it.

Originally Bright Guy consisted of only three pages:  Astronomy, Biology, and History.  As facts started pouring in, additional pages were required.
  • Ancient History - contains facts relating to anthropology, sociology, archaeology and history before the Renaissance
  • Modern History - is a broad category hosting facts from the Renaissance to the present
  • H. s. sapiens - hosts facts specific to the human species
  • Aquatic Biology - contains facts specific to the kingdoms of Animalia, protista, archaea, and bacteria primarily residing in aquatic environments
  • Terrestrial Biology - contains similar categories to aquatic biology, but residing in terrestrial environments
  • Environment - includes facts on geology, meteorology, plantae, and fungi
  • Physical sciences - this page is dedicated to chemistry and physics
  • Space - is a broad topic of everything astronomy including ancient and modern history and the latest science
    Educational Resources is an organization that consults on and develops educational materials.  The majority of our work is in the form of electronic presentations, summative documents, and online content management.  In 2004, BB Educational Resources merged with Bright Guy after it was recognized that there was significant overlap between the educational material and the facts hosted by Bright Guy.

    We support the participation of the Internet community at large.  Visitors with facts or ideas of their own can submit them to us where we will validate and post them!  This process is not without flaws, if you find that there are facts that are incorrect please feel free to let us know, and we will be happy to remedy the issue.

    Our most recent project is available to the general public with access to Apple's iOS platform.  SampPrep is an app that contains dozens of questions, answers, and explanations pertaining to the College of Family Physician's of Canada's Family Medicine exam; specifically, the Short Answer Management Problems section.
