The MUG Center, an online resource for Mac user groups.

Kaminiarz has been involved with Apple user groups since the 80s, and is a co-founder of RevMUG, a MUG and electronic community. He aims to support a strong network of user groups to ensure that the MUG remains relevant to the needs of Mac lovers, users and owners, he said.
When not involved in MUG activities, Kaminiarz is a registered respiratory therapist, working as a clinical instructor at Vancouver General Hospital, British Columbia’s tertiary care & trauma center. He replaces the outgoing Heidi Kreiner-Ley, who pioneered the regional liaison effort for Canada.
In other MUG news, there’s a new user group organization in China. BeiMac, a new Macintosh User Group in Beijing, had their first meeting in early March and is off to a good start, Joiner said.
MUGs are good places for making new friends, finding Mac-loving buddies, boning up your technical expertise, finding solutions to technical problems, and sometimes finding a good deal on used hardware. For more info on MUGs, and to find the location of the one nearest you, go to
