I thought the meeting went very well. The turnout was great (certainly more than I expected), and, of course, the moderator did a fine job!
Bob Velke’s presence obviously added an extra “plus” to our first gathering at NEHGS.
I, for one, appreciated his comments on various functions of TMG, and left feeling that I learned a thing or two.
I think the format of bi-monthly is good. That spread should allow us the opportunity to properly prepare for each meeting with the video presentation, followed by questions and discussion. In addition, perhaps one of the “Guru’s” in our midst could be persuaded to give a presentation on one or two aspects of the program.
Good job! (more to come <G>)

Subject: [BostonAreaTUG] Next Meeting: November 17th; Program topics? Presenters/Volunteers?
Yesterday, we held the first meeting at NEHGS.
19 were in attendance including Bob Velke President
of Wholly Genes and Dick Eastman of Eastman's Newsletter.
Bob answered questions and gave a brief view of TMG 7.0
He has indicated that he is willing to return and give a more
detailed view of it in the future.
A poll of those attending was held regarding the frequency of
meetings that the group wanted and an acceptable date for the
next meeting. In order to keep up momentum for the group,
it was decided to have the next meeting in November. The
favored date for the meeting was Saturday, November 17th
from 1- 4 PM. The NEHGS room holds about 40 and it seems
appropriate considering its cost. Enough funds were raised from
donations so we can pay for the site. We will attempt to gain
the use of the room again on the 17th.
If we run a hands on interactive workshop, we will need to find a
One of those attending is looking at the possibility of using a
University Computing Lab
and its cost.
Currently, my thought is that we should have a program emphasizing the
on TMG [Intermediate] which is 88 minutes long. In addition we need to
have a Q&A period of
at least 30 minutes which leaves about an hour for a second subject. What
would you like to talk/learn about, present, or moderate a discussion
about in this time?
