HARDWARE

Macbook Pro, 2007, and iMac, 2011, both running OS X 10.8.

SOFTWARE

  • TextMate – This text editor is a favorite among programmers.
  • Google Chrome – Still my browser of choice, by far.
  • Dropbox – Backs up all my necessary documents. Good for sending large files.
  • Evernote – This app, above all others, is my external brain.
  • Adium – Solid all-purpose instant messenger program.
  • MPlayer OSX Extended – Great all-around media player.
  • Transmit – A complete FTP client.
  • Skitch – Handy for annotating screenshots.

SCRIPTS

  • Mountain Growl – Pushes Growl data to Notification Center, but still manages to retain full Growl support.

WEB SERVICES

  • Google Docs – I do a lot of collaborative editing in docs. Google Spreadsheets is also invaluable for storing and charting key data, as well as occasional web scraping.
  • AccuRadio – For when I need some tunes.
  • Feedly – My newsreader of choice. The keyboard shortcuts make it easy to plough through lots of info quick.
