"We are living in a post-PC world," the famous words Tim Cook, coined when he launched the iPad, will sum up my presentation. We live in a world today where workflows, accessibility, advertising and entertainment are changing dramatically. I will share on how I have used Wordpress as an engine to tap into these changing times and give some pointers on how to stay afloat in a sea of growing choice in web apps.

There are as many productivity apps on the web today as there are choices of deodorant in the grocery store. The list just keeps growing. The tools you used yesterday to "get er done" are outdated, costly and don't play nice with others. I want to explore the end of copy-and-paste processes and dive into a suite of tools that you can use right now to improve your workflow, free up your time to stimulate your creative genius, and maximize your ability to leverage mobile accessibility and tools.
