Upcoming Appearances: Macintosh Computer Expo and DVMUG

MCE: This coming Saturday, October 7, I’ll be speaking at the annual Macintosh Computer Expo in Santa Rosa, California. I spoke at last year’s expo, and it was lots of fun. Sponsored by NCMUG (North Coast Mac Users Group), the event is almost like a mini Macworld Expo, with a room full of vendors demonstrating (and selling) their products, and three concurrent tracks of guest speakers on a variety of Mac-related topics.

I’ll be speaking about running Windows on an Intel-based Mac from 10–11 a.m., and I’m working hard to prepare an entertaining and educational presentation. I’m planning to hang out at the show for the rest of the day, too, so if you’d like to meet me or ask any questions, there should be ample opportunities. Attendees will also get a discount code that can be used for any of the Take Control ebooks.

My newest print book, Real World Mac Maintenance and Backups, isn’t due out until October 16, so unfortunately I’m out of sync with book-signing season this year. However, I’ll be happy to sign any of my earlier books that you happen to have.

DVMUG: I’ll also be speaking at the Diablo Valley Mac User Group (DVMUG) in Walnut Creek, California on Tuesday, October 17 at 7:00 p.m. During that presentation, I’ll be covering mostly backup-related topics, with a special segment devoted to Thanksgiving dinner!
