BJ Hill: There’s an App for That: Technology That Can Make You a More Productive Writer
Taught by someone who is both an I.T. professional and a freelance writer, this meeting will cover practical computer solutions you can apply to your craft. Topics will include how to make your files accessible across devices, how to restore your data from a crashed hard drive, and how to decipher specs when shopping for a new computer.
The session will exhibit useful apps which will “turn off” the Internet, turn off certain parts of the Internet, and eliminate ads from web sites. Audience participation is encouraged, so please bring your questions and your own favorite tips and tricks. This afternoon will deal mostly with PCs, but most solutions will apply to Mac OS and Android systems.
BJ Hill is an I.T. consultant for several non-profit agencies in the Worcester area. He also writes human interest stories for the Worcester Telegram and Gazette, including a recent series on hiking across Massachusetts.
