  • Blog Post: SWMUG 2008 Christmas Parte

    Back in January 2002, 8 intrepid geeks had coffee in a Lindfield Cafe at the inaugural meeting of what was then the Sydney PocketPC Usergroup. Tuesday night saw almost 50 people celebrating the continued success of the group from those humble beginnings. The evening began with a group Christmas Dinner...
  • Blog Post: TE08: Are Social Networks the new Usergroups?

    A session asking people “in the know,”about the future of communities. Those who meet in exotic locations, at late nights, and speak arcane languages; those who tweet, and blog, and (well some) Facebook! Do we need to gather together in the same place and time? Or should we just share pictures, and videos...

  • Blog Post: Demos Happen {Here}

    Our National Demo Competition is starting to hot up, despite the seeming lack of activity on the Community Website, and I've been fielding a number of questions across the board. I thought it may be high time to post the most frequent, and attempt at least to answer these as best I can. As ever if you...
  • Blog Post: SWMUG May 2008

    What a great meeting of minds last night at SWMUG. Er, that's the Sydney Windows Mobile Usergroup to the uninitiated. We kicked off with a segment on Microsoft and Mobile News from April. I seriously thought that this would be a 5 min segment summarising perhaps 4 or 5 happenings over the last month...

    Loving all the work that Daniel Brown and his compadre's are doing around Sharepoint in Adelaide. This month, apart from taking part in the Heroes Happen Launch (shameless plug), they're hosting a Networking Event at the Pasta Palace. If you are in Adelaide on the 18th March, and have anything at all...
  • Blog Post: True Evangelism

    I went to a session today entitled "True Evangelism." Rather than a breakout, this was a "chalk-talk." Which is to say interactive, with everyone able to give their perspective and ask their questions. We covered a lot of ground, from initiatives that various teams around the world...
  • Blog Post: What are Usergroups and where can you find one

    Most of you reading my blog will be familiar with the concept of a usergroup. Perhaps you are a member, a leader, or perhaps you don't feel there's any particular value for you.... Simply put, a usergroup is a collection of people whom have a similar interest (in this case) in a technology. These people...
  • Blog Post: Play Nicely Now

    I Love our generation. I Love the technology we work with, and I especially Love the Internet. One of the things I love is enabling people, connecting people. The implications of that over my career, has been to work with a heap of technologies: JCL, COBOL, Novell, WordPerfect, Windows for Workgroups...

  • Blog Post: Inaugural 2008 Meeting for SWMUG

    So on Tuesday night we had a true Geekfest. No agenda, no presentations, no plan, simply a bunch of enthusiasts with their favourite toys. In this case mobile gadgets. The theme was "Nostalgia Swap Meet." As ever in these types of meetings, I'm blown away by just how outdated, clunky, and big...

The first was through a happy misunderstanding, and I stepped in at the last minute to host the .NET Usergroup. This group has been run by Adam Cogan for (much) more than the...
