I’ve only just gotten to San Francisco and of course I love it already. A great deal of that can be attributed to my job. Chronicle Book’s Design Fellowships have introduced me a fun and fantastic work environment that I sincerely doubt I would’ve found anywhere else. I’m a Digital Media Design fellow which, for those regular readers of my blog, is no big surprise. I work on websites and eBooks. In fact I’m in the midst of updating the Design Fellowship website (with the lovely banner by a former fellow above) and building an eBook that features kittens in a big way. I feel like I’ve jumped in feet first and found that everyone I’ve met is just so… nice!
But before I ramble how about some tech talk, or maybe a little food fun? So many alliterations I know! (It’s getting late as I type this, can you tell?)
In the world of tech there are rumblings of dissatisfaction with Apple. These feelings come primarily from investors who believe Apple’s potential to grow is diminishing. For those of us common folk, this means nothing towards the quality of our apple products (at least for now) Your MacBook pro will run as it always has and Apple is certainly not shutting their doors. Rather, their unopposed reign over technology is coming to an end. Samsung is giving Apple a run for its money and Exxon Mobil stock has surpassed them, effectively ending their long reign as most valuable company in the world, for now. So what does this mean? It means we’ll more than likely see innovative new products from Apple, some good, some bad.
Now onto food! Lucky me, the IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) conference is in San Francisco this year. It’s a whole conference talking about food! The conference takes place from 6-9 of April 2013. If an entry fee makes you feel a bit green around the gills perhaps you could consider what I’ve always done: volunteer!
Hopefully once I finish a few freelance websites I’m working on I’ll be able to post a new recipe or tech trick for you all. But until then, anyone have any thoughts on bringing your tablet into the kitchen? Pro or Con? And if you do use it in the kitchen, what for? Recipes? Tv?
