Programming note: We’re away on retreat ?

We're catching some rays on the Jersey Shore and will be back Monday.

It’s the most wonderful time of year at Technically Media: that’s right, it’s retreat time.

It’s an annual summertime tradition for the publishing company behind and The retreat gives Technically’s 20 staffers time to bond with members of our distributed team, evaluate the state of the company and chart strategic initiatives — all while enjoying outdoor activities and a cold beverage or two.

That means ur boy Stephen Babcock has departed for Surf City, N.J., though he promises to be back on Monday. We will not be publishing stories Thursday and Friday, to make sure that the entire editorial team can fully participate in retreat activities.

Follow us on Snapchat (username: technicallym) for updates from the beach. We even got a custom geofilter this year!
