Google Goggles: One of my best friends in the world designed the ridiculously sophisticated technology behind this app.

6. What apps are popular among your colleagues and friends?

What kind of nerd sits around with their colleagues and friends talking about apps? How the hell should I know? My colleagues and I talk about work and work only. My friends and I talk about philosophy, spirituality, science, astrology, yoga, fitness, and Burning Man. But not apps.

7. Give an example of a time an app was truly useful to you.

I was lost in a bad neighborhood in Baltimore and Google Maps got me out.

8. What other member do you admire the most and why?

Garick – because he thoroughly and painstakingly reviews his apps, and he is the most social media-immersed person that I know.

8. Do you have a blog, Twitter, Facebook etc. URL’s you’d like to share?

Sure: (please comment anonymously).

9. Anything else you’d like to share with the Appolicious audience?

I’m almost 35 years old. I remember when there were no mobile phones. I remember when there was no web. I remember when there was no Internet. Don’t ever, even for a second, take any of this for granted.  It’s a stunning and exponential blossoming of human potential.
