The (official) Apple Commercial Playlist
One night, while I was following a Wikipedia rathole, I came across this post. I decided to find a playlist on Spotify that showcased the music found on Apple commercials. When I couldn't find one, I decided to make one. Details on the playlist can be found on this post.
TestOut Network Pro Certification
On December 15, 2012, I earned my second professional certification - TestOut's Network Pro. This was obtained after a successful completion of CINT 121 Networking Fundamentals. This validated 15 years of working hands-on with all sorts of crazy networking equipment, including 1- and 4-pair wiring bundles, coax drops, punchdown blocks, wiring terminations, Ethernet and wireless network hardware/software configuration. Need a network built? Yeah, I can handle that.
Apple Certified Associate - Mac Integration 10.7
On December 8, 2011, I earned my certification in integrating Macintosh computers in a Windows corporate environment. What this means is that if your using Active Directory servers and you want to add Macs to your network without spending thousands changing your existing infrastructure, I can help you with that. Small businesses, meet BYOD.
Started in 2009, IndyGeek.net provided reporting and commentary on all things technology throughout Indianapolis. As the Editor In Chief, I managed a staff of 10 and together we rose to the forefront of technology news reporting in the midwest. We were not a corporate-owned media outlet, so the latitude we had in reporting on industry events and items was broader than most. Sadly, due to the financial constraints, IndyGeek.net was ceased publication in 2011 shortly before its second anniversary. A fully-functional archive of the site can be found at www.indygeekarchive.com (You can view my posts here.)
New Media Designs
Back when I first started doing web media, decided to start my own business. New Media Designs, LLP was founded in 2009 as a consulting business for web publishing and photography, servicing businesses mostly in the West Indianapolis area. At its height, NMD provided community news under the website West Indianapolis Today, and global audio podcasts with such shows as Mac After Dark, The Tech Geek and The 2.0 Show. Eventually NMD was spun off into its flagship product, IndyGeek.
