Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, you missed some old-timers, a great new feature (appleSTEMs), and the Board election (shame on you!).

At Coco’s, topics ranged from beg-a-thons, satellite radio, Microsoft ads, and delivery drones to dark chocolate chip cheese pie! and “standards”. And Jordi was back!!

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!

The Romans Beat the Swiss to It

Yeah, I know it’s not computer-related, or even remotely modern, but it’s too cool to pass up!

PYBT: Roman “Swiss Army Knife”.

Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, you missed even more great iOS 8 tips, some seriously hysterical cartoons, and a great bunch of new people!

At Coco’s, we touched on Contacts on an iPad Mini, (shocking) revelations of age, Skype and/vs FaceTime, (Russian) counterfeiting, and potato vs sweet potato fries.

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!

Who are you and what do you do?

At The Sweet Setup:

Every week we try to post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.

Today’s victim, er, interviewee:

My name is Álvaro Serrano and I live in Madrid, Spain. I’m the author and publisher of Analog Senses, a website about the human side of technology featuring links and articles on design, photography, Apple, and the tech industry in general, as well as other interesting things currently happening on planet Earth.

For the past six years I used to work as a researcher and software developer at Technical University of Madrid. During that time I did quite a bit of software development in several major platforms, including iOS, OS X, Windows, Linux, Android and the Web. Right now I’m in the middle of a career transition and I’m trying to grow Analog Senses into a sustainable business. As of the end of July, I consider it my full-time job.

You can catch Álvaro’s complete story here: Álvaro Serrano’s sweet setup.

“Back issues” can be found here: Sweet Setup Interviews.
