It killed me to not talk about Macstock right after I got back, because it was so much fun. I can’t talk about Macstock without talking about the people first. The vibe at Macstock is that everyone is there to learn and to meet people. Instant friendships are struck at break time, at lunch, at the deep dive sessions and at the parties at night.

The People

In fact, one of our new friendships started even before we arrived. I got an email from Corky Heath, who has been been corresponding with me about the podcast for about 8 years. In a weak moment, he thought he’d enjoy picking Steve and me up from the airport and driving us the hour from Chicago to our hotel in Crystal Lake.

CCATP #447 Mike Potter on How to Throw a Tech Conference

Macstock logoIn this week’s episode of Chit Chat Across the Pond we’re joined by Mike Potter of For Mac Eyes Only to talk about what goes into creating a tech conference. We talk about choosing a venue, creating speaker agreements, getting insurance, managing the catering and more. He knows what he’s talking about because he’s about to host the 2nd annual Macstock Conference and Expo outside of Chicago this weekend. Steve and I were supposed to go but since our grandson’s arrival is any day now, we’re going to miss it. However, Mike is going to bring me in on the big screen to do my presentation on why you should consider using Apple Photos. If you haven’t bought your tickets yet to Macstock, go check it out at macstockconferenceandexpo.com.
