JulieToday we’re meeting Julie Kuehl, a freelance WordPress developer, Harley rider, and one of the co-hosts of the SciFi Tech Talk Podcast.

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).
