Daryl Wise, virtual curator of the Digital Art Gallery, will be the featured guest on tonight’s episode of The Mac Show, the Internet radio show about all things Mac. The gallery, which has 30 images selected from over 900 submissions, premiered at last month’s Macworld New York.
The images will also travel across the country as an exhibition to art galleries and universities and to Macworld San Francisco in January 2002. Wise will talk about the challenge of digital art, including its grudging acceptance in the world of fine art.
Chuck Joiner, the Mac Show’s User Group correspondent, will highlight the past month’s MUG (Macintosh User Group) news from Macworld New York. He’ll also talk to Bill Medlow, president of the Long Island Macintosh User 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 Apple’s User Group Web page.
Tonight’s Mac Show will also have the monthly User Group contest for StuffIt Deluxe and ShrinkWrap from Aladdin and Mac Care Unit from Casady & Greene. In the Tech Tips segment, sponsored by Micromat’s Tech Tool Pro 3, host/producer Shawn King will talk to Tom Cheek and Jon McCarron of Mac.Tucows.com and focus on The Mac Show’s “Shareware of the Month.”
Peter Cohen of MacCentral will be talking to Colin Lynch Smith of Freeverse Software, and Mark Stevens talks to John Paul Caponigro in the “Mac Media Pro” segment. Plus, Hilary Percy is back with “Mac Basics.”
You can catch The Mac Show every Wednesday evening from 6-8 pm (Pacific). And join in the Chat Rooms on the World Without Borders site or on the dal.net servers on IRC in the #macshowlive Channel.
