Exeter Area Mac User Group: Going Paperless and Email Expertise

The May 14th topics of the Exeter Area Mac User Group’s (EXAMUG) monthly meeting will be going paperless and getting the most out of email, from beginner to expert. Interestingly, the group meets at two regular venues, with one for the even numbered months, White Hart Hotel, Exeter, where members can meet for a drink and a chat, and one for the odd numbered months, ISCA College, Exeter, which has a nice range of computers and devices for group use. What a great way to provide both tech savy and community.

Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 1.0: A First For Atlanta

The Apple Pop-Up Museum will be part of the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 1.0 when it opens in Atlanta on April 20 and 21, 2013. Amusingly, the planners will be using approximately 6,000 square feet of what was previously the CompUSA regional corporate offices. Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 1.0, which bills itself as a public celebration of computer history and nostalgia, is one in a series of Vintage Computer Festivals dating back to 1997, although this is the first one in Atlanta.

Check it out.

The photos on the Pop-Up Museum’s page are fun to watch.

The Shrine of Apple is participating as well.
