Chuck Joiner’s Macintosh User Group (MUG) Center Web site now hosts a gallery of photos from last week’s Macworld Conference & Expo San Francisco, with the promise to post links to other galleries around the Web as readers send them in. Joiner also notes that BeLight Software, developer of the Business Card Composer application, has created a user group program and has been added to The MUG Center’s vendor programs page.
This week’s MUG meeting roundup starts with Wednesday, Jan. 19 because MacCentral was off on Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday; our apologies to groups whose Tuesday meetings we missed. On that day, Seattle’s dBUG presents “What’s New from Macworld” and showcases Delicious Monster’s new software; Tucson MUG holds its annual elections; and Kansas City’s MacCore features “Ask the Experts.”
On Jan. 20, the regular online MUG Center chat happens at the World Without Borders Web site. The same day, northern California’s Tri-Valley MUG welcomes Apple representatives and raffles off an iPod; Ontario, Canada’s Quinte MUG looks at non-linear video editing; Syracuse MUG brings in TidBITS’ Adam Engst; Arizona MUG features “Internet Revisited & Flash!”; Dallas MUG reports on Macworld and discusses “a six-pack of utilities to enhance your Mac experience.”
On Jan. 22, Washington Apple PI and Champions of the Mac Proletariat both revisit the news from Macworld, while the latter also holds elections. The same day, Australia’s Central Victorian Macintosh Users offers favorite Web sites and Northeast Ohio Apple Corps brings in Eric Meyer to explain Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). Finally, Macintosh Users Business Society of Philadelphia holds a Macworld Expo recap on Jan. 24.
Macintosh User Groups interested in seeing their events listed on MacCentral are welcome to send us their news. We post roundups of MUG events and gatherings each week.
