Apple Quack got a discussion going on Twitter recently, regarding the core Mac applications she uses to keep her busy medicine/research/parenting life on track. Symtym then expanded the discussion to include hardware and practices/habits he uses as an ER MD and attorney. Walter Jessen at Highlight Health 2.0 chimed in with some of the specialty applications he uses as a genetic researcher. At first, I didn't think I was techie enough to enter into the discussion, but I found myself drawn back to these posts over and over, and this led me to take the following inventory of my own Mac app usage, hardware, peripherals, and practices. Tongue-in-cheek, I'm calling this overview of my techie persona "Web 1.69" because I'm definitely a few points short of a full-fledged Web 2.0 user, and even my current forays into the world of tech are a few points short of optimal. But I'm trying, you gotta give me credit for that.
