Who are you?
Justin Willett, associate city editor at Columbia Daily Tribune
What do you do for money?

What do you do for fun?
Primary. I couldn’t do my job without technology, from basic infrastructure such as the Internet to newer social media networks and smartphone applications, I have to stay connected to be successful. Plus, it’s fun.
Mac or PC or Other?
I use a PC at work and a MacBook at home. So many apps are web-based that I can work on anything. I also have a Google Chrome notebook. The Apple experience is the most pleasant and intuitive and complements my iPhone habit.
I use twitter for …
keeping abreast of local happenings and finding out what people really think about local issues and businesses. You can find more honesty on Twitter because of the space constraints and stream-of-consciousness vibe.
I use facebook for …
keeping track of birthdays.
