9:00 – Joe Kissell presents the “Discovery Paradox”.
Screen Shot 2013-09-29 at 12.12.09 AM What happened to the old plug and play, “what manual?” world Mac and Apple users used to brag about? Things aren’t so easy anymore – but maybe that’s by design.  In telling you why he thinks this is so, Joe will give you a bunch of great tips he’s discovered to make your experience more fun, productive and exciting!

iOS 7 and the upcoming OS X Mavericks will also be covered.

Joe Kissell was selected one of the 25 most influential people in the Mac Community. He has presented for us several times before, by iChat from Paris. This time he is here, live and in-person!

10:15 – Journalism in a Digital Age

panelIn this panel of  local journalists representing different media we will explore how news is gathered, processed, then delivered. What issues does digital technology solve…or create? Everyone with a smart phone and social media can be a news maker…or can they? We’re not in Kansas anymore.

The panelists:

Nick Grube – Civil Beat
Jared Kuroiwa – KHON TV, Digital Director
Gordan Pang – City Hall, Fire and Police reporter,  Star-Advertiser

It’s going to be interesting!

We close with Apple Magik!
