Chicago Nonprofit Technologist

Apple, where does it fit, and why would you want it to?

I am invited to give a 15 minute talk “about Apple”. My audience is a non-Apple tech social networking group, Business Network Chicago Technology Networking Luncheon. Jean Pickering, the facilitator, doesn’t have a background using Apple products– just thought that folks would enjoy hearing about “Apple”, as she believes it has become a topic of interest to her group’s members.

When asked for my topic, I gave, “Apple, where does it fit, and why would you want it to?” I think it would be useful to round out my own ideas with input from others, who use or support Apple products. What I present at that meeting, I will post in text version on this blog.

(June 15th, I gave my presentation and have posted the notes and slides to that presentation on this web page. Take a look and add your own comments.)

Below are the responses to my original request for input on the topic:
