GeekDime started as a personal blog called The Espresso Report: Random ramblings of Richard in 2007. This blog received popularity among the first hackintosh communities through Richard Ward’s extensive Mac OS X hacking and detailed articles. GeekDime continues the Espresso Report tradition of informative and geeky blogging through a community of editors working together as The GeekDime Team.

I have been a lover of words for as long as I can remember and a lover of technology (of every kind) for years. As my intrigue grew so did my understanding of software and its importance in the way in which we explore the world. I have extensive experience in project management and I also work actively as a developer using new frameworks such as AngularJS, Firebase and NodeJS to build realtime, data driven applications for clients of all kinds. Writing is a passion and coding is my work. I aim to be informative and helpful for those seeking knowledge that I have, as that is how I continue to evolve in my industry.
I scour the Internet in search of answers that I find useful to myself and I hope will be useful to whomever takes the time to read what I write. I am not the best and I don’t know everything. But this new era of endless information makes for the perfect canvas upon which I can learn and cultivate a craft. If you have the drive to learn, I have the drive to teach.
I sincerely hope that my writing is informative and helpful and that you will continue to read. Stay curious, stay motivated and stay open to the possibility that effort yields reward. With such an attitude you will understand this new world that is rapidly expanding and growing every day and you will be able to keep up with the technologies that continue to evolve at an exponential rate.

Ever since I got my first computer and dial-up modem back in 1997, I’ve been connected to the web in some form or another. Always ready to push the limits of any technology I could get my hands on, I started learning how to design and code during the height of the dot-com bubble. Being a hacker of sorts at a young age has opened my eyes to see the world differently — how things work, and how to make them work better has fueled my curiosity.
Since I work online, I’m always coming up with new ideas for solving problems in my life. I typically write from experience (or lack of) not only as a way to record my own information, but also share it with those who may have asked themselves the same questions. I tend to focus on Apple-related articles, being an avid Mac hacker since 2005 when Apple began switching to an Intel-based platform for their computers. I’ve been hooked on Macintosh ever since.
Ask questions. Break stuff. Don’t live in a world full of someone else’s instructions. Make your own instructions and create the next great thing.
