Hey, guess what? I’m speaking at Macstock 2019 (and yes, see the end of the post for my special discount code!). It’s coming up on July 27th and 28th this year, once again in Woodstock, IL. Which you obviously know is the town where Groundhog Day was filmed.

Last year I spoke on tagging, which you know I love, but it’s a hard sell and a tough talk to do (I discovered too late). This year, the theme of the conference is “Create,” and I pitched one I’ll really love doing. I haven’t finalized all the subtopics of this year’s talk yet, but the subject is going to be automating and improving all kinds of writing on the Mac (and iOS). It’s going to be fun.

I even happen to know that — among the many folks I’m looking forward to seeing — my friends David Sparks and Rosemary Orchard (of MPU/Automators fame) are going to be in town, with some live podcasting and a presentation from Rosemary that I’m truly looking forward to.

The Early Bird Sale for tickets is on now, with weekend passes going for $179US (regular price $249). Macstock grows every year, and I’d love to see you there. I see this as the most viable replacement for the best parts of the Macworld expos of yore, so the more the merrier.

Start thinking about making it to the midwest for a weekend of Mac and iOS fun this summer. You can use the code TERPSTRA to get an additional $10 off the early bird price right now!
