Do you use a laptop or desktop?
Apple or PC?
Mac all the way man.
What’s your favorite gadget and why?
I love my macbook. Once you go Mac, you never go back. I wanted to become an iPhone user but I am a loyal Verizon customer and couldn’t really deal with the change to AT&T.
What do you use your computer for most?
I’m a writer and I love the user friendly Mac interface. I blog, but not nearly enough. I write for the North Hills Monthly Magazine and I write a lot of reviews on hot happenings in the Pittsburgh area. I also use my mac to communicate with out of town friends on Adium and social networking sites. Skype is amazing for keeping in touch with my friends who live outside of the US.
Favorite web site/s?
www.matthewgood.org –Matt Good is my all time favorite musician and I have been able to meet a lot of MG community members online and offline from being a part of the community section of this website. Not to mention, Matt Good is a phenominal blogger and activist.
www.miss604.com –I met Rebecca Bollwitt from the MG community in Vegas this past summer. She’s a consistent Vancouver blogger and has done some great off the beaten path coverage of events.
www.popcitymedia.com –Pittsburgh is at this turning point of becoming really really cool and Pop City is a great accompaniment to weekly CP reading. I recently attended the opening of Sugar Boutique in Shadyside which I found out about from a weekly Pop City email.
How has tech most affected your life?
I’m not a coder, gamer, or even remotely 1337, but I think without social networking, I would not be the person I am today. I have been able to use social networking tools to make great connections and find new opportunities to advance my skills and become a more worldly individual.
