Local Mac Pride
Both apps are awesome. And both are made, at least in part, in Seattle. Local hero Chris Parrish is half of Aged & Distilled, and the Black Pixel machine of cool is on upper Queen Anne.
I love that Napkin and Kaleidoscope are both Mac apps.
I can’t talk about local Mac app makers without mentioning Omni. I wish like crazy I could make it to their OmniFocus 2 event in San Francisco on January 31. OmniFocus saves my bacon.
We have a strong tradition of Mac app development in Seattle — and it’s stronger now than ever.
All you have to do to meet all these folks is attend Seattle Xcoders meetings. Some folks just show up for the after-meeting get-together, which is usually at the Cyclops. So add that to your plans.
