The Macintosh User Group (MUG) community is busy this week, with info from around the globe and even some news from Apple itself.
The User Group section of Apple’s Web site
has received a major overhaul and is now live. The new design features the familiar Locator to find a MUG near you, an updated Questions and Answers page, a brand new section for campus Macintosh User Groups and a focus on getting tools and information into the hands of MUG leaders.
Also, Aaron Adams, one of folks featured in Apple’s “Switch” campaign, will be making a special appearance at SIGMAC, a MUG at
Case Western Reserve University
in Cleveland, Ohio, on Sept. 5.
Finally, Chise Mishima lists dates and locations for an Apple User Group tour of Japan, and also issues an early notice about Japanese MUG re-registration. Yuan-Yuan Sun reports from Central Europe about the upcoming Apple Expo in Paris, and what involvement MUGs will have in it.
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.
