User Group Report
at The MUG Center, an online resource for Mac User Groups (MUGs), covers a wide variety of MUG news, events, history and more. The User Group Report is the audio series hosted by Chuck Joiner that features interviews with people making news in the user group community.
Matt Johnson of the Northern Ireland MUG profiles his group, outlines some of the challenges of being a Mac user in a country with no authorized Mac dealers, and covers his group’s fund-raising project to raise money for a new Power Mac G4 for a local cancer organization.
Dan Berube of the Boston Final Cut Pro User Group makes his first appearance as a correspondent to the Final Cut Pro User Group Network. He talks about what the FCP User Group Network is, where they are, why they’re a little bit different than the average MUG, and why you should stop at the Final Cut Pro User Group Theater at Macworld Expo.
Patrick Crowley of iCalShare.com talks about what his site is all about, what it offers, how it’s growing, and how MUGs are using it to help promote themselves.
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
