Local MUG activities, etc.
- On reading my post-vacation email & scanning the net a bit I observe
the following near-term Mac User Group activity possibilities:
A32 meets in (at the near edge of) San Jose on Weds, 9 July to hear
about Apple's new iChat DV software PLUS its new iSight camera that
puts the V in "DV". Check
for more info.
ebMug meets at the main Berkeley public library on Thurs, 10 July to
hear about iMovie. Info at
This is the 3rd of their series of iLife presentations.
SMUG meets at Stanfords Linear Accelerator facility (Panofsky
Auditorium) on Monday, the 14th. This is a week later than "normal"
if you keep track of such things. The club's website at
provides maps but no meeting info. And, unfortunately, I'm not sure
what this month's meeting topic/presenter is to be.
SVMUG meets Monday, 21 July at Apple, Cupertino -- to hear a rep from
the Valley Fair Apple Store tell about the store, Apple's new
products, etc. More info about this later. The website at
provides maps and other info. In actuality, this is a Yahoo mail
list site (with open archives) -- and the official meeting
announcement will show up there eventually.
One week later, on the 28th, I'd expect there to be a meeting of
BMUGWest at the Exploratorium in SF. Check
as that day approaches. These guys always meet on "the last Monday"
of the month.
Most of these meetings take place at 7pm or so. However, you'd be
advised to check the websites for better info. I know that the
Berkeley meeting is constrained by meeting in a place that "closes
early". Accordingly, their meetings begin at 6pm.
For fans of "Apple store openings", I note that there's to be a new
store opening in Walnut Creek Saturday AM on July 12th. Details at
Hard core store junkies might like to attend another opening a day
earlier in Santa Monica. I'm pretty sure that you could find details
starting at .../retail. I'm going to try to attend one or the other
opening -- watch my tee shirt to see if I made it ;<}
While on the subject of stores, fellow SMUG member Norm Persing tells
me that we're on track to having a new store in Burlingame also!!
Apparently, it's being staffed now -- so this would imply an imminent
More than this, I don't currently know ;<}
