Sharing our geeky holiday wish list at our December #NYCIST meeting.

Erin Mumford (current president of NYCIST) came up with the topic of “Holiday Wish List” for this month’s meeting after buying iCarriers for her family members — this was after Dirk Delo of Avenues School shared how handy his iCarrier was for charging his family’s phones during the power outages of Hurricane Sandy: http://www.newtrent.com/store/iphone-external-battery/icarrier.html
