Macstock Stories: Meet Frank Petrie

In our very first episode of Macstock Stories, I sit down to chat with Frank Petrie about his history with Apple, lessons from film school, being a creative person in a technology-driven world, the origins of his blog, YMPNow, and what brings him back to Macstock each year.

Frank is a 3 year attendee of Macstock, a technology blogger, and a writer for ScreenCasts Online Magazine.

Everyone has an interesting story to tell, and this is Frank’s!

When I announced the postponement of the next in-person Macstock to July 2022 back in February, I also announced Macstock Stories, a limited run series that focuses on the Macstock Community: the very folks who attend and support Macstock each year. If YOU have an interesting story to tell, whether it’s a cool project you’re working on with your Apple gear or a favorite story from past Macstocks and you’d like to share it with the Macstock Community, reach out and let me know!
