I’m headed home from Macstock 2016 on an Amtrak train as I write this. It’s been a great weekend. I got ill on the way to Chicago, and remained under the weather for the duration of the conference, but hey, I feel good on the train ride home, which makes sense based on how little I enjoy traveling.

Macstock was an opportunity to meet up with many of the people and personalities I always enjoyed going to Macworld for. It’s not huge (yet), but it’s big enough to be a lot of fun, the speakers were great and the attendees were wonderful. I plan to go back next year (might even pitch a talk of my own), and hope to see it grow rapidly. Thanks to Mike, Barry, all the speakers, and all the people who headed out to support making a new big meetup for the Mac community.

By the time I post this, I’ll probably be 38. I only know this because my Mac popped up a notification from Facebook’s Birthday calendar this morning. It’s been a whirlwind few days. Systematic is on a brief hiatus as I’m traveling a lot more over the next few weeks, but Christina and I are trying to keep Overtired regular!
