a person who is enthusiastic about technology

This blog is written and produced by Chase McCoy in Starkville, Mississippi.

I am a nineteen year old nerd who is currently attending Mississippi State University to major in Computer Science. I have an outstanding taste in music, and yes, I am a coffee snob.

I founded an Apple consulting business in the summer of 2013 in order to spread my knowledge and love of Apple in my hometown of Starkville, MS. If you want to learn more please visit The Know How.

This blog is about the technology and ideas used to bring creativity to writing, design, and the way we work.


The design for this site is my spinoff of the Less theme by Jared Erickson. The body for this site is set in Proxima Nova, and the headlines are set in Museo Slab. All of the typefaces for my site are served through the amazing, wonderful Typekit.

This site is designed to remain readable in mobile browsers. If you notice any problems with the layout or design of this website, please contact me.

The Setup

The blog is proudly powered by WordPress.

All posts for this site are written on either my 2012 13” MacBook Air, my black iPhone 5S, or my iPad Air. I use Byword or iA Writer to write in John Gruber’s excellent Markdown syntax.

When I get ready to publish my posts on my Mac, I use MarsEdit. When I want to publish on my iPhone or iPad, I use Poster. Images are edited using Pixelmator.

I use a variety of tools to get things done. Some of them include Evernote, OmniFocus, Tweetbot, and Keyboard Maestro.

This site is Minted, of course.

Even though I enjoy using these tools, I also enjoy using analog equivalents. I have a slight obsession with stationery, and my pen collection continues to grow larger as my wallet grows smaller. No matter what pen I am using, I write on a Field Notes memo book. You can see my collection of Field Notes here.

It takes money to run this site, and writing here is not my full time job. However, if you enjoy reading the things that I write you can help me out by buying me a cup of coffee with the button below. I appreciate any and all tips.
