The Western Region Macintosh User Groups’ booth (number 2345) will be the official presence for Macintosh User Groups (MUGs) at next month’s Macworld San Francisco show floor, according to Chuck Joiner, editor of the
MUG Center, an online resource for user groups.
The booth will be located in the South Hall of the Moscone Center. Here MWSF visitors will find representatives from the Diablo Valley Macintosh Users Group, MacNexus, Maui Apple Users Society, North Coast Macintosh Users Group, Sonoma Valley Computer Group, and Standford/Palo Alto Macintosh User Group.
There will also be a special section for four university MUGs — leaders in the on-campus Macintosh User Group movement include: Apple Student Core @ Emory, Arizona State Macintosh User Group, Boston University Macintosh Users Group, and the Colorado State Macintosh Users Group.
World Without Borders, the largest Mac chat site on the Web, will also be in the booth to chat online live from the show floor with MUG leaders, celebrities and those making news at this year’s Macworld Conference & Expo, Joiner said. Macworld San Francisco 2002 is scheduled for Jan. 7-11 at the Moscone Center. For more info, go to the
expo Web site.
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
