Apple co-founder Steve “Woz” Wozniak will be the keynote presenter at the Sept. 20 meeting of the
Houston Area Apple Users Group (HAAUG), which will be celebrating their 25th anniversary. Meanwhile, the Tucson (Ariz.) Macintosh Users Group (TMUG) will offer a variety of presentations at their Sept. 17 gathering.
Wozniak’s keynote address — which is sponsored by the Digital Communications Department of Houston Community College — will start at 11:15 a.m. in the auditorium of HCC’s West Loop Center, 5610 West Loop South, near the West Loop and 59 interchange. The event is open to the public, though HAAUG members and media representatives will get priority seating; everyone needs to RSVP.
At TMUG’s meeting (held from 6-9 p.m. in room 5403 of the University of Arizona Medical Center, 1501 N Campbell) presentations will include: “Fundamentals of Archiving and Backup, Mac OS X & 9,” “World Books v7.1 & TMUG Form” and “My Favorite Programs (Konfabulator, PDFshrink, My Time Card, Galerie and more).” There will also be a question and answer session and a raffle.
The meeting is open to the public;
directions are online. 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.
