Last night we hosted the latest Bay Area Web Freelancers’ Meetup, where we shared tools of our trade. Everyone who had something to share just plugged into the projector and showed off the stuff they like. We already have better productivity, less eye strain, safer WordPress sites and an overall better outlook.
