Thinker, writer, coffee-drinker – always on the bleeding edge of technology. Keeping up with Don Vytiaco’s diverse interests in technology, computing, post-production, broadcasting, animation, VR, graphic design, programming, web development, app development, cinema, videography, photography and fitness, can be a rather harrowing experience. Especially for his brain. A self-proclaimed Mac evangelist, “donvy” occasionally writes about Apple’s latest additions to our gadget-lust er… list.

We need to do better and are committed to improving our process on these important issues." The site is also working on ways to distinguish between hate speech and its condemnation.
