Digital Disaster – Life After Death – for Dallas Apple Corps

On Saturday 11 October, I had the pleasure of presenting to the Dallas Apple Corps on the subject “Digital Disaster – Life After Death”. This was original presented at Macworld in early 2014 but I took the show on the road after I got such a great reception for the topic.

The audio got weird at the beginning so I had to change microphones partway through. If you’d like to jump past the nasty audio, go to around 7 minutes in and you actually won’t miss much of the presentation!
