Ben Waldie, president of the Philadelphia Area AppleScript Users Group, is in the middle of a series of appearances at Macintosh User Groups (MUGs) in the Northeast U.S. to inform people about AppleScript, Apple’s system-level scripting technology.
His presentation includes an introduction to AppleScript, examples of where and how it’s used in the print and media industries, how to get started, and more. Waldie will also give the members of each visited user group a special User Group Pack of sample scripts and products he developed and previously released as shareware.
He has already presented to The Macintosh Business User’s Society of Greater Philadelphia, Macintosh Users of Delaware, The Macintosh Association of Central New Jersey, and The Hershey Apple Core. Future appearances include: the Bux-Mont Macintosh User’s Group on June 5, the Princeton Macintosh Users Group on August 12, the New Jersey Macintosh Users Group on August 19, and the South Jersey Apple Users Group on October 17.

The MUG Center, an online resource for Mac User Groups.
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
