One of those evenings where you learn a lot by listening, and it's both thrilling and comfortable to get to ask questions afterward +Syria Airlift Project+AfricanSkyCAM+Burt Herman+Ben Kreimer+Mark Jacobsen+Uplift Aeronautics​

Apple won't even sell you one today. It's just to try it on. You can preorder after. But in any case they are already sold out. All gone in 6 hours. The gold edition watches were sold out in under an hour. I managed to buy a stainless 42mm with the Milanese loop within the first minute of the store opening, but even so delivery will be in late May. And Apple did not acknowledge my second order for a 42mm sport in white. They are on,y allowing one watch per Apple ID.

"If me being honest about it might help a young kid who struggles with anxiety or depression or is dependent on substances, I feel better about my work. Ultimately that’s the kind of work I want to make, work that helps people, not just “turn up at the club” type shit.

"But I like turning up at the club too."

"Smartphones provide all the critical pieces for these new services. They take care of distribution through the app store, monetization through in-app purchases, incredible video quality through cameras and microphones, and connectivity everywhere with LTE internet."

Introduction
Since May 2007, I've worked as the Bay Area News Group's online coordinator. I offer best-practice advice on blogging and social media, forum moderation, reader-generated content and live chats.

I was born and raised in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and earned a bachelor's in mass communications (concentration in newspaper journalism) from Bowie State University.

My first newspaper job (not counting several years as a Washington Post paperboy in Silver Spring, Md., and a year or so as editor-in-chief of Bowie State University's Spectrum student newspaper) was a Chips Quinn Scholar internship at the Oakland Tribune. That led to schools and general-assignment/nightcops reporting stints with the Tri-Valley Herald in Pleasanton and a stint on ANG Newspapers' universal copy desk as an editor and paginator; later came online copy-editor shifts at TheStandard.com and Salon.com.

I joined the Contra Costa Times in September 2001 as a copy editor and paginator. I became the paper's first morning online reporter in January 2006.

I came in early on a Saturday morning and saw a gentleman behind the counter answer three other customers' questions quickly and politely. And he only charged me $5 for a while-you-wait shoe shine.

During a protest outside superior court, the manager let me charge my laptop. Thanks to his generosity, journalism proceeded apace! :-)
