MacVoices #20196: MacVoices Live! Mike Potter Wraps Up Virtual Macstock 2020 (1)

We wrapped up Virtual Macstock 2020 with host Mike Potter on a recent edition of MacVoices Live! Mike, along with Macstock chat host David Ginsburg and attendee Frank Petrie, discussed the building blocks of the virtual conference’s success, including the video streaming service and the “audio space” that allowed a “hallway track”, David’s handling of the chats and questions from the audience, and some of the extra little touches Mike implemented to make sure the event was as Macstock-like as possible.

High Fidelity


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.

David Ginsburg is the President of the Suburban Chicago Apple Users Group, and is an IT professional supporting Mac, iOS and Windows users. Find and follow him on Twitter as @daveg65. You can also hear him share his knowledge on his podcast, In Touch With iOS.
