Daily Links for February.

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

Up until now its been tough to keep this site updated on a regular basis as things here are set up around the idea of long form, illustrated posts… and those will remain as time allows to create them… but it seemed a shame as I’m galavanting around the Mac universe every day coming across good information definitely worth sharing that I haven’t up until now.

So to fix things, I’ve come up with the vehicle of Fresh Daily Links which you’ll always finds under this same banner each month. This provides a quick, simple way for me to share and what you’ll be left with here is a nice daily aggregate of what’s new and noteworthy in the Mac community. So stop by every day why dont’cha?

Check out the pictures, interesting to find Jobs to the presidents left and Zuckerberg to his right. The complete guest list can be found under the pictures.
