Board of Directors Recruiting

It’s that time again, folks: elections!

We will be presenting the Board of Directors candidates at the December meeting for approval/election by the members at large.

Would you be interested in serving? We meet once a month, generally the Wednesday after the general meeting, for a couple of hours, and generally have a grand time. We’d love to share the excitement and accomplishment with whoever else is interested in helping out the group.

If you are interested, please notify Leonard (at the front, on the stage) or Mo! (go right to the back table) and we’ll add you to the list.

Thanks so much for your consideration.

Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, you’ll never know just how cool doing stuff in iMovie can be.

At Conrad’s, movie sets, Amazon rain forest politics, CBS & Viacom, iMDB, cats & coyotes, LG phone charging cables, and ketchup dominated.

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!

Had You Heard?

The more things change…

From Klint Finley, on Wired, today:

In 1987, Apple moved its software products, such as MacPaint and the office suite AppleWorks, into a new subsidiary called Claris. But by 1998, most of Claris’ products had either moved back to Apple or been discontinued. So the company reformed as FileMaker, named for its flagship product, a database management system Claris acquired in 1988.

Now the Claris name is back. FileMaker, still a wholly owned subsidiary of Apple, said Tuesday that it has changed its name to Claris International as it diversifies its portfolio of products and services beyond its flagship FileMaker Pro.

for the whole story, PYBT: Attention Apple Retro-Heads: Claris is Back!.
