MacVoices #18169: Road to Macstock – Mike Potter Delivers The Final Announcements for Macstock 2018

The Road to Macstock comes to an end in a conversation with Macstock organizer Mike Potter, who has some new announcements heading into the event. Mike explains the Digital Pass option that will let those who aren’t able to make the trip to still enjoy the presentations, talks about why TextExpander from Smile is the perfect Gold sponsor for this year’s productivity theme, and what he expects to come out of this year’s Macstock Swap. Macstock has grown and evolved during its short lifetime. Mike discusses how and why that has happened, reviews the evening activities, and teases us with a special announcement that will be made on Sunday.

Guests:

Michael Potter  is the Executive Producer of For Mac Eyes Only, and the organizer of the annual Macstock Conference and Expo. Mike’s love-affair for all things Apple began in his Junior High’s Library playing Lemonade Stand on a pair of brand new Apple ][+ computers. His penchant for Apple gear continued to be nurtured by the public school system when, in High School, he was hired as a lab supervisor to help run the Apple ][e lab for his fellow students and their Print Shop needs. Then, further still, in college he often opted to help a friend with her Computer Graphics coursework instead of focusing on his own studies, but only because it helped get him closer to the Mac-lab.
