About Jason Earls (Member of iA Staff)

Hey there, thanks for stopping by. I hope you're enjoying all of the great content we have here. Things I love: Music? Check. Technology? Check. I started getting into technology a bit later than some. I started using Windows in 2003 or 2004, until 2010. After that, I ended up getting a Mac, and have been using OS 10/macOS ever since. I am also a member of Apple's public macOS and IOS beta programs. I’ve played with Ubuntu, but I haven't really delved into it. One of these days, I'm going to get a box, and start learning it for real. I've also used Android up to Kit-Kat. I love to learn and help people, and just have a good time.
