Howdy, I’m Zac,

I am a geek, I freely admit it. I have a passion for all things technical, digital and innovative. Additionally, I really enjoy helping people, solving mysteries and most of all… writing about all of the above.

My professional background is in graphic arts / prepress, but I have also been heavily involved in music, multi-media and all technical aspects of the arts for years now. My life wanders along both parallel and diverging paths.

Howdy, I’m Patrick,

Zac and I stumbled across each other in China over a meal of Gong Bao Ji Ding (Kung Pao Chicken) and Tsingtao beer. I follow the Top Gun view of high tech, “I feel the need, the need for speed.” The intersection of business and new high tech is an interesting area to me because it leads to new ideas and new products becoming reality in our lives.

My professional background is in new product development and marketing of Intel semiconductors, PCs, digital music appliances / Internet streaming services, and graphic arts / prepress. What the heck has all of this in common?   I’ve always been involved at the developing the bleeding edge of tech to change the way the world works and plays.

Additionally, I started out life as a Berry Livingston (Ernie Douglas) look alike from My Three Sons.

Biography: I’ve been experimenting with mobile devices since 1992 when I bought a Sharp PC-3100. In more recent years I’ve had devices running Palm OS, Windows Mobile, Linux, Android and iPhone OS. I’m a mechanical engineer working for a software company, and a software hacker on the side (mostly Python, and Android). I also like playing with GPS, riding my bicycle every day of the year, and flying unpowered aircraft when I can – so long as it doesn’t interfere with my skiing! I’ve known your host Zac for over 10 years, but please don’t hold that against me.
