Buying a Mac is a deeply personal experience, but at Macstock Conference & Expo 2015, Guy Serle and Gary “Gazmaz” Malpas break the process of buying a Mac down with three examples and then give a surprise twist at the end.
In the weeks leading up to Macstock 2015, we’ll be running a series of quick interviews with each of the presenters of this year’s Macstock Conference & Expo called Meet the Speaker.
Today we’re meeting Tim Robertson, the founder of MyMac.com, the Stoplight Network, and TechFan. He is an early pioneer in electronic and online publishing, and was one of the first podcasters in the world.
Going all the way back to the early 80s when I first saw a crude flight simulator on an old Apple II I’ve been fascinated by computers and what they had the potential of doing. As soon as I could afford one, I bought into it to see if I could translate some of that interest into the real world. That old Mac Plus served me well and convinced me that this was something I wanted to pursue.
What would you say to someone to convince them to come to Macstock?
If you ever went to the Macworld Expo and enjoyed it beyond the vendor’s booths then this is your chance to experience the community again. If you never went to the Macworld Expo, this is your chance to get a taste of what it was like at a much lower cost and in an area that won’t judge you based on your fashion sense or in my case lack of fashion sense.
Thanks to Guy & Gaz for devoting more of their show to Macstock!
Because we haven’t talked about it enough, Gaz and Guy devote the entire second section of the show to the Macstock Conference and Expo which is taking place on June 20th in Woodstock, Illinois. This is followed by them also talking about the Midwest Mac BBQ taking place on the same day. They MUST be sick or something. Hang on a moment…they were! However in a moment of lucidity, they’ve included a great recording of Gaz’s daughter Sarah singing at the end of the show.
