INTRO TO JACQUES-NOLOGY

Technology. How does Jacques feel about technology? 

Well…

It wakes you up in the mornings. It helps you manage your schedule. It can remind you to work out, and help you set and achieve fitness goals. It delivers messages via text, voice, and email–the bane of your existence, while also being the thing that allows you to work from anywhere in the world (or is that wi-fi?).

It allows you to seek answers and knowledge (much of questionable value). It can whittle away a boring day at work. It lets you keep in touch with (and occasionally avoid) family, remember stuff, maybe even go on a date. Or at least find a good place for a delicious Cacio Y Pepe. 

And yes, it’s stupidly overwhelming. We’re here to help with that.

What is Jacques-nology?  It’s a technology writer, product manager and lady Jacques’ s approach to making technology enjoyable.  To making technology worth your time. To helping technology improve yourself and your relationships. And to clearing your head and getting technology out of the way so you can live your life like a person and not like a cyborg.

What will Jacquesnology talk about?

In the future (we love the future), we’ll talk about the devices you’ll need to be that Jacques man.  We’ll address lingo like platform, device agnostic, responsive design, as well as highlighting products we love like 3D printers.

We’ll tell you about the other websites and editorial you can read to be a Jacques-nologist. We’ll talk about the future of technology and what you should be excited about. We’ll talk about game-changing and world-altering technology ideas. Perhaps spaceships. Or an app for finding ice cream. And we’ll talk about how you can impact the technology around you for the better.

To start, here’s an app we are really into. 

Pocket: This clever app that lets us save awesome content (articles, video, images) to consume later on our mobile device. Download it here, and when you stumble upon an awesome article at work (but don’t have time to read it there and then), click the pocket bookmarklet and read that baby on the subway ride home or in bed!

More soon and if you wanna talk, I’m here
