Off to Macworld Expo 2010, and a mention in Macworld!

Macworld mention Protect your Mac.jpg

Are you going to Macworld Expo 2010? We are! While we don’t have a booth this year, Agile team members Gita Lal, Marty Skinner, Cindy Compton, and I will be combing the show floor and hitting the parties. Gita, Cindy, and I are on Twitter (@justg, @macpug and @chartier, respectively), so we’ll tweet what and where we’re up to either from our personal accounts or @1Password. Feel free to come say hi and chat about 1Password and AllBookmarks!

And now, I have a question for you: is there a better Macworld Expo send-off for an indie Mac software company than a mention in Macworld magazine? Perhaps. But there’s no way we could afford a bunch of laser pyrotechnic gear and a Neil Diamond appearance on such short notice, so I’m going to have to go with “no.”

Thanks to a tip from 1Password user and avid Twitterer Michael Pratchard, I picked up the March issue of Macworld to find that 1Password was indeed mentioned on page 34! In an article titled “Protect your Mac,” Rich Mogull lists 1Password among other tools and techniques for safeguarding your Mac and the precious data it contains. Rich likes our password management and browser filling features, but he also recommends 1Password’s Strong Password Generator tool for creating extremely strong passwords to take your Internet and personal identity security to the next level.

The article is definitely worth a read, and we’re not just saying that because we’re in it. Honest! It never hurts to brush up on new ways to protect yourself both on and offline these days. Plus, the rest of the issue discusses digitizing your photo collection, Apple’s rocky relationship with AT&T, Google Chrome, some App Store standouts, and more, so run out and snag a copy.

Thanks for the mention Rich, and we hope to see you, dear 1Password users and readers, at Macworld Expo!
