Adam Christianson  says that his first Apple was a IIGS which he acquired by successfully talking my Dad out of purchasing a Mac Plus (Ahh, to be young and naive again). A steady stream of Macs followed. He made it through college using my trusty Mac Plus and after graduation migrated to a Performa 575. The Performa sustained him while working in pre-press for a successful Portland, OR advertising agency. In Portland, with the help of the local Mac User Group (PMUG), he quickly made friends with other Mac Geeks and officially joined the Cult of Macintosh. Adam’s career quickly moved from pre-press to IT services, while all along doing freelance web design and development under the name Terraform Creative. After and brief stint on the PMUG board of directors, he purchased a shiny new B&W G3, packed up his stuff and moved to San Diego to dry out. Adam began a new life as a Software Engineer and sought out new Mac Geeks in the San Diego Macintosh Users Group (SDMUG). He currently serves on the Board of Directors for SDMUG, as well as the Board of the San Diego Computer Society (SDCS). In August 2004, Adam discovered Podcasting and became instantly addicted. In early December 2004 he put out the first MacCast and hasn’t stopped since. He currently produces and publishes the  MacCast  each week and is having a great time doing it. The Macintosh and the Mac community continue to amaze and inspire him and he is happy to be one of the crazy ones. You can find him on  Twitter.  

After taking a break from podcasting,  Victor Cajiao  is back with his new show,  TerraTech, “Exploring a World of Technology”, where he examines technology in all its iterations, not just computing. Follow him on  Twitter.
