Macstock organizer Mike Potter has announced that this year’s event has joined the list of cancellations due to COVID-19, and walks us through the behind-the-scenes factors that went into that decision. A disappointment? Absolutely, but Mike has bigger and better plans for the conference’s return in 2021. He shares some of the details, explains how ticket refunds and carry-over work, and teases a little something special to tide us over.

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.
