A variety of Macintosh User Groups (MUGs) will be exhibiting in the User Group Booth at next month’s Macworld New York. IDG, the show’s sponsor, has donated booth space for a MUG presence in the Exhibit Hall, and a wide variety of groups have been invited to represent the global MUG community at the show, according to Chuck Joiner, editor-in-chief of
The MUG Center, an online resource for MUGS.
In addition to community groups, several campus MUGs will also be in the booth to demonstrate the power of the MUG movement at universities and colleges worldwide, he added. The groups in the booth will change daily, to provide more groups an opportunity to appear, and to represent more areas, Joiner said.
Hosted by the Long Island Macintosh Users Group, the slate of exhibiting groups include: The Apple Student Core At Emory, Boston College Macintosh Users Group, Boston Macintosh Users Group, Bux-Mont Macintosh Users Group, Colorado State Macintosh Users Group, Main Line Macintosh Users Group, MacNJ (Macintosh Association of Central New Jersey), MetroMac, PackMUG (The North Carolina State University Macintosh Users Group), and Princeton Macintosh Users Group.
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

Macworld New York will be held July 15-19 at the Jacob J. Javits Center in New York City. For details go to the
