It can be hard to make every meeting and sometimes the best meetings are the ones we miss. George Rubin, V.P. of the Naples MacFriends User Group has a solution that benefits both his own group and other interested groups as well: he records each group meeting and posts it on YouTube.
Want to see Derrick Story’s iPhoto and Aperture preso., Jason Snell’s discussion of OS X Mavericks, Joe Kissell’s take on passwords, learn more about 1Password Presentation or catch Adam Engst’s guidance on current technology? They are all on YouTube courtesy of George and the group. What a neat idea!
President Jerry King provided a link to the full set of videos on offer.

At the 400th meeting of the Apple Corps of Dallas (ACD), a founding member, Ray Thompson, presented a wonderful look at 33 years of computing. Now the group has reached its 35th year and is going strong, with meeting attendance running around 70 attendees. At their December meeting ACD will be honoring some of the group’s founding members and those who have contributed so much to the group’s success. How many groups can say that they still keep in touch with four or more of their founders?
Still, the group is as involved with current trends in technology as they are proud of their history. In fact, their web pages reflect a certain OS we know and love.

In the fall of 1987, Yuan Ho and Seth Schneider met in a local Palo Alto, CA, Apple Computer dealer store, starting with shared interests in Macintosh computers, international topics and translation, and later obtaining sponsorship from Standford University to start the Stanford Macintosh User Group International Special Interest Group.
Over time members changed and the group’s name changed too, but the group’s international focus stayed the same. A love of Apple products stayed the same as well. This month’s meeting, on October 17 at the Google campus, is titled Cloud-based Translation Management Systems for Start-Up LSPs and Freelancer Groups, showing both their tradition of attention to current technologies and their reliance on the group’s roots. Congrats to the International Multilingual User Group (IMUG) for 26 years of computing!

From Friday, October 25, through Sunday, October 27, the officers and members of the Atlanta Cutters Post Production User Group will host their first Southeast Creative Summit. The group is looking to fill an interesting need: while many user groups focus on the software and hardware that makes digital interactions fascinating and sometimes profitable, an equally important focus is on the how-to instructions that can make a difference between an office filled with impressive products and an office that produces amazing work across applications using those products.
Sessions will include Color Grading, 4k, VFX, Sound, Business, Photography, Music, Producing, Film making, Aerial Photography, Audio Post, High Frame Rate Acquisition, Social Media and more. Better yet, the presenter list is amazing.
Attend and Learn.
