The MUG Event Calendar for October 20: Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus, Jim Heid, Tim Matheny of Apple, Google, MacCamp, MUGs at MacLive Expo and More

MUG Event Calendar 2008A wide and varied set of events and presentations mark this week’s MUG Event Calendar.

Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus will help a Texas group celebrate their 30th anniversary, Mac expert and author Jim Heid will virtual-visit a student group in Massachusetts, and Apple Senior Systems Engineer Tim Matheny will present to a group in Tennessee. Google will show off their many wares to a California MUG, while members of several European Mac User Groups will man the MUG stand at this week’s MacLive Expo in the United Kingdom, and an Oregon user group tradition continues with the gathering known as MacCamp.

That’s far from all, however. Two California Final Cut Pro groups have fill agendas for their October meetings, a Canadian group will focus on a screen capture program and zombies (zombies?), and Mac User Groups everywhere will be buzzing about Apple’s new laptop options.

There seems to be some confusion about how to get listed on the MUG Event Calendar. Write this down: Just email your group’s meeting information to The MUG Center and it will magically appear here, on The MUG Event Calendar and in our weekly Briefing. Got it? Good.
