The Pebble Time recently concluded its record-smashing run on Kickstarter.  Here are my thoughts on how remarkable it is for a variety of reasons.

UP PERISCOPE!
Hey G+niuses! Have you tried the new app  yet? It's so us. So live. So interactive. So fun. I think it's a great new little sister to our beloved #Hangouts ! Because it's so simple and fast, I've decided to try doing teeny tiny Periscope Pop-Up Concerts every... single... day!

I'm getting ready to 'scope my second ever show live from my bedroom (haha!) so if you'd like to join live (just like Hangouts but with no viewer-video feed just tons of live comments and flourishes of hearts) then go download Periscope and follow me on there!

Periscope also will tweet a live link to the show to watch! So you can find that here: www.twitter.com/dariamusk and I'll try to multitask and come back to add the link in this post on G+ too!

'Scope you soon!

XO, Daria

Ps. Next Hangout Concert coming up fast too!! Details on the way!

Guys, if you want to know the story of Geek Beat and Geeks Life, Please ask Luria and John.  I cannot and will not be able to answer for personal and professional reasons.  I am a contributor, not a principle to this.

I have interests and responsibilities outside of this and you're all making it very difficult to work.

Pardon the Mess…. http://wp.me/p3xxm0-8v 
We’re making some changes around here to make an all new and hopefully better Tech Hangout. Before we take the show to the new Tech Hangout 2.0 format, we’re upgrading the site to a new responsive design. I’m not much of a web designer so things may be changing. So tell us what you think. …

Story
Tagline
My here opinions are my own and don't reflect the views of anyone I'm employed by.
Introduction
Who am I?  I am a professional with skills in writing, PR, and customer service.  I am highly skilled, intelligent, and learn new skills extremely quickly. I am humble, patient, and take direction well, but can operate independently effectively and I work well with others. I am a person who cares deeply about the job I do and creating a positive outcome for my clients.

Who am I?  A product of the 21st century with my roots in the 20th.  I'm a lifelong technology fan, most of it on Macs, former hardcore gamer, and guitar and auto geek.  My other hobbies include history (especially military, aeronautical, and maritime), science (both physical and biological), philosophy, and when I need to decompress, you can find on a trail somewhere amongst the trees.

You can find me writing for technology sites, co-hosting Deconstruct, and being a semi-frequent guest on technology podcasts.
Bragging rights
I hit .700 in little league one year. I'm not kidding.

This place is a technology mecca. KEF Speakers, HUGE curved UHD TV, 30 UpDesks, 3 robots, a giant psycho wall... I mean cyclorama. Just watch out for the Kreepy Kitty and the dynamic prank duo of Gio and Kubby. Also there's a Chihuahua visiting the place which doesn't serve you Taco Bell. If you're Dallas, and by Dallas I mean Farmers Branch, you have no excuse not to visit.
