Last month we took a look at Keynote Live and how your user group can integrate it into your meetings. In part two of this series we will take a look at collaboration for Keynote, which is a new beta feature added with the introduction of macOS Sierra and iOS 10. Collaboration is built into all the iWork apps, but in this article we will focus on Keynote.
The new collaboration tools are a great way for a multiple presenters to work on a project remotely and in real time. User groups leaders and presenters can work on a topic prior to a group meeting. Needed edits or updates can be made, or individuals can work on their slides for the project while another person is editing their slides. (more…)
On January 6, 2004, the Macintosh was a few days over 20 years old and Steve Jobs had exciting news: Apple had a new type of software, called GarageBand, and a new format for the iPod, an iPod Mini with a huge 4GB of storage. How would we ever fill all that space? With this month’s release of the newest version of GarageBand, it seems like a great time to remember its introduction, with John Mayer performing and Steve Jobs explaining the ways that it would open a world of possibilities.

Over close to 30 years, publishing 1,350 issues (and more than 7,000 individual blurbs), the InfoManager newsletter, User Group Network and UGNN have covered what mattered for Apple User Groups and their members. Remember the User Group Forum on eWorld? Fred was there. Macworld in 1987? Yep, he was part of that exciting show. This month brought news that Fred is retiring and he and Lynn will no longer be publishing InfoManager each week. Times change and we move ahead, but it is important to thank them for all the years of service to the community.
Thanks Fred and Lynn! You will be missed.

O’Reilly has been a part of the user group community for more than 30 years, so it is hard to remember back to 1978 when it was a small consulting company with a focus on UNIX and related technologies. By 1986 O’Reilly was publishing their Nutshell books and 1988 brought their well-known animal covers. By 1992 many of us were reading our copies of the Whole Internet Users Guide and Catalog while our more adventurous members were reading Programming Perl. As the years went on, many of us became fans of their Missing Manual series.Today, O’Reilly is an integral part of the technology community, providing handbooks, webcasts, conferences, trainings materials, online resources, Maker Faires, and more. Are your members taking full use of their resources? (more…)

Taking his advice regarding thanking those who have made our user group experience better, we’d like to say thanks to Nicholas for his articles over the past year. We look forward to taking his advice on planning for the year to come. (more…)
