Neil Ticktin, the organizer of the annual MacTech Conference, has been so busy that we were only able to catch up with him a week before the event, and under some unusual circumstances. Neil talks about the keynote that will set the tone for the 10th anniversary of the conference, some of the new kinds of sessions that have been added, and the trademark out-of-the-box activities that make it something special. Find out more, and how, even though you have put it off until the last minute, you can save some money on attending. This edition of MacVoices is sponsored by Smile, the makers of PDFpen and PDFpenPro, PDFpen for iPad, PDFpen for iPhone, PDFpen Scan+, as well as TextExpander for Mac and TextExpander for iPhone and iPad, as well as the new TextExpander for Windows.
