Audio Interviews by Dan Hanson, the Great Lakes Geek
The year is 1979 and Jim Cookinham is using a Texas Instrument TI 99/4. Fast forward to April 3, 2010 and Jim gets his hands on an Apple iPad on the first day it is available to the public.
Jim likes cool tech gadgets and has always been an early adopter. In this podcast, Cookinham talks about his new Apple iPad and some of the changes that are taking place. For example, he now prefers reading books on his Amazon Kindle or Apple iPad over the traditional paper book. And he loves the gesture user interface.
Jim Cookinham founded the Northeast Ohio Software Association back in 1998. He was talking tech in Cleveland before it was cool.
Though Neosa has changed from the early days, it is still the most effective voice for the IT community in the region - thanks to Jim Cookinham.
In this interview Jim talks about the past, present and future of Neosa. You'll also hear about his Navy days on a nuclear sub, what he's reading/listening to and his iPod Nano story that US business people have to hear.
In addition, hear what Jim has to say about Pittsburgh and who "gets it" in town.
