Who is Ron Schott?
Ever since I can remember I’ve had this love affair with all things digital. It started out as a kid when all I could think about was getting that NES system. Once I had it in my hands I needed the next thing and the next thing until I finally reached the age of 26 and realized that I had a problem… no, I didn’t stop, but now I write about it.

What is Jet City Digital?
Jet City Digital is the catch-all for my life as a digital citizen and the lives of my friends, colleagues and digital friends as we navigate life – digitally. It’s the things I see, do, and hear every day in my work (and play). It’s the things that make our lives easier and our wallets lighter.
