About Kerry Dawson

My name is Kerry Dawson. I’ve worked in the IT industry for over 30 years and have spent at least 20 of those years using a Mac in large corporate environments and for my own personal work and endeavors. I’m now a consultant and have been doing that for quite some time. I primarily rely on the latest Mac Pro to do my work but I also use my iPad Air and of course an iPhone to get things done. Everything now happily talks to every thing else which is great as it does help with my productivity and freedom.

I’m also a huge consumer of software. Sometimes, I feel, too much. Yet, its great to have so much choice and so many options now. I primarily try to use software, when its feasible, that runs both on the Mac and IOS platforms. Sound sync technology is a must. Again, its all about productivity and the freedom to work seamlessly on any device, anywhere knowing you’ve got the same data. Microsoft’s new CEO Sataya Nadella’s new strategy for Microsoft “mobile first, cloud first” is highly consistent with my views.

I’ve seen a lot of changes in the IT industry over the years and especially in the Apple/Mac ecosystem. The last ten years has been specifically profound and the next ten look incredible. I’d like to share with you some of my views on the changes, how to keep up, what’s good and well…

You will find the content at the site high level in nature. It is not intended to be a how to do site but to look at technology and specifically Mac technology in terms of the solutions and benefits it can bring you. This site will primarily discuss trends and more specifically software as it attempts to take advantage of the huge advances in hardware.

Productivity will be a pivotal theme based on a model. The model I use is GTD and this will be discussed in detail. Sometimes, it appears so miraculous the things that can be done now while at other times one wonders what’s the best way to stay on top of all this. I hope you enjoy this site and the perspectives that will be presented from past to present through to what’s to come!
