New Series – Mac at Work

mac at work sign 300.jpg

Lately, between speaking and writing engagements, I’ve had a lot of contact with Mac users bringing their shiny Apples into the workplace. It seems, for a variety of reasons, the invisible barrier between the home and the workplace has come crashing down. Put simply, people are bringing their Macs to work and looking for ways to get ahead. I am not talking just about artists and movie editors. I’m referring to all sorts of working stiffs from lawyers to salespeople, from marketing minions to CEO’s.

I have been giving these people advice as I go along but it occurs to me there really isn’t a resource for this information. How do Mac workers use their Apple hardware to look fantastic to their clients, co-workers, and bosses? Since this has been my obsession for some time, I’ve decided to grab the reins.

I am excited to announce a new series at MacSparky called, appropriately, Mac at Work.

In it I will be covering a variety of topics explaining how to get the most out of Mac hardware and software at the workplace. The idea is to provide the readers simple advice to dominate with their Macs.

My plans don’t stop there. I will be podcasting (and screencasting) some of these topics as I go deeper down the rabit hole. I’ve got a big outline of subjects prepared and I’ve submitted it to a few publishers. I think there is a book in this. Whether I actually convince someone to publish me or decide to do it myself, at some point I am going to put all of this into one resource.

So there you have it, my line in the sand. Keep watching for Mac at Work.

    Sounds like a great idea. I’m the only Mac user in our small law firm, so I’m looking forward to learning new ways to get the most out of my Mac hardware. Thanks for taking this on.

    I would love to be able to use my Mac at work, if only so I could use OmniFocus full time, instead of having to rely on the adequate but not great d3 running in a browser!

    Unfortunately, I can’t even get my Mac on the work network. If you can tell me how to connect the Mac to the wired network and get through the Windows Server integrated security stuff I have to do, that would be awesome!

    Love the idea, David! I purchased a Macbook with my own money JUST so I could use one at work. My colleagues are wowed with my devotion more than anything else, although Timeline 3D, Notebook, Pages, Things and Delicious Library have them thinking about Macs. Luckily there are others in the office who have Macs (at home), and so I am not alone.

    I am a part time photographer. The rest of my work I do at a technology company, and being the only one using a mac in a Windows environment, I would truly appreciate guidance in using the mac in an Exchange | Active Directory environment. I definitely think there is a market for sharing this know how. Thanks.

    I would also like more info on how to use my Mac at work! I have a small business that I am changing to the Mac and need Software/Hareware info. I am having some problems trying to find Mac programs to replace some Windows programs for Faxing and editing the PDF file. All faxes go in/out with the computer and need a program and printer/scanner to do the job.
