Julie Kuehl: Life as a Digital Nomad

Mac laptops are powerful enough that many people use them as their desktop machine. But when in their native environment – a coffee shop or backpack – a few adjustments might be needed.

At Macstock Conference & Expo 2015, Julie Kuehl talks about what apps, habits, equipment are suited to life on the road.


Five Questions with: Julie Kuehl

SciFi Tech Talk:

Why do you use a Mac?

Is this a rhetorical question?!

OK, I started using Macs because of podcasts. GarageBand was the killer app that brought me into the fold. Once I made the switch – and I do remember the confusion of that process (what no backspace delete?!) – I couldn’t stomach Windows machines any longer. It’s really hard to give specifics and put it into words, but it boils down to user experience and design. And some really cool apps.

What would you say to someone to convince them to come to Macstock?

Mac … Stock.

I mean seriously, what more needs to be said?

I’ve always said there’s a lot of similarities between the Apple community and the Harley community. Macstock is the makings of the Sturgis for the Apple world. Minus burnouts and Jager shots (unless you want to).
