I’m fourth in line at the grocery store on Labor Day with a gallon of milk and an US Weekly trying to figure out why everyone else had the same idea I had: That no one else would be at the store on this holiday and running in for one item – one item – would be a breeze (the US Weekly was an impulse buy). I feel so impatient, standing in line. I mean, almost everything I need in my life is at my fingertips. I want a book? Ten seconds later, it’s on my iPad. That new song I love on the radio? Shazam – it’s on my “New stuff” playlist on my iPhone. That document I left on my desktop at work? Well, I won’t even get into how easy that is to get (I do work at LogMeIn, after all).
When I was introduced to join.me, I knew it was going to be a game-changer. It’s easy, it’s simple and it’s instantaneous – pretty much the word I think describes my generation. I’m not your average 20-something: I buy iPad cases instead of shoes, I love eating at new restaurants because I haven’t “checked-in” there yet and my enthusiasm for iOS 4 updates rival the squeals of teenage girls at the latest Twilight premiere. The bottom line is, I am LogMeIn’s resident gadget-loving, tech-news-obsessed, Facebook-ing,Tweet-ing, blogging, social-media-marketing girl. And I love every second of it.
I’ll be on the blog sharing with you what every online collaborator needs to know: join.me news, updates, tips and tricks; interviews with join.me users and creators; and other news to supplement your geeky, tech side: Cool technology and news that crosses my MacBook, ways to have better online meetings, my favorite note-taking iPad apps – all sorts of awesome stuff, all from the perspective of someone who grew up in the generation of living, working and learning online.
P.S. Just thought I would mention- Team Edward. All. The. Way.
