MY BEST TECH: Michael McKinnon

Patrick Stafford /

Michael McKinnon is the security advisor for AVG, and much of his job relies on juggling various tasks at once. He says his favourite piece of tech at the moment is a website that lets him keep plenty of tasks going at the same time.

“I use Trello.com, which is based on an old Japanese manufacturing methodology called Kanban.”

“It’s a free site, that any business can use, and it’s incredibly powerful for providing collaboration across different team members and having a very simply method of tracking little projects and managing them all.”

“It’s incredibly flexible, and it’s very simple to use. I’d say it’s one of my favourite pieces at the moment. We use it for co-ordinating blogging content and all sorts of projects. I’ve been recommending it to a lot of people.”
