Macs and Progressives

MACS AND PROGRESSIVES….The conference I was at yesterday was a get-together of various folks from the liberal media (In These Times, The American Prospect, ColorLines, Mother Jones, etc.). We are, of course, preparing to take over the world, and Apple should be very happy at the prospect. Of all the notebooks busily being tapped on during the meetings, I’d say about 70% were Macs. This compares to an Apple market share of around 4% in the real world.

Steve Jobs should be contributing large sums of money to progressive media. I wouldn’t be surprised if we rival the graphic arts community in our dedication to the Mac ethos.
