Gabe Goldberg Visits NNCUG
(Northern Neck Computer User Group)

APCUG Region 2 Advisor, Columnist, and co-host of AARP's Computers and Technology Web site, Gabe Goldberg, came to Kilmarnock, VA to visit and brief the NNCUG membership at the June 10th meeting. It was great to have a nationally known computer enthusiast come to town.

Gabe explained how APCUG is an international Windows, Linux, and Mac User Group for User Groups. They are a non-profit clearing house for exchanging information and resources for computer clubs everywhere. In 1986 there were only 30 groups nationwide. By 1987 there were 150 and now over 400. APCUG serves as a communications link with the computer tech industry for all groups. NNCUG pays only $50 a year for membership.

Gabe is APCUG Advisor for New Jersey, Delaware, Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia and is a member of the Capital PC User Group which has over 900 members. He travels as a volunteer to other groups in his district, having come here from Fredericksburg.

Each year APCUG hold a national conference in conjunction with the January Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Gabe hopes that some day a similar event will be held closer to the east coast so more members can attend. One of the main benefits for local clubs is the monthly email with win zipped "Push" articles that your editor relies on to make the monthly newsletter informative. Gabe has been one of our favorite authors.

On AARP's Web site, Goldberg publishes articles and provides help on www.aarp.org/computers. He reviews and lists major articles of interest to seniors.

Gabe answered many member questions and remained for the beginners SIG session on researching the web. He was like one of us only much better informed. Great visit, Gabe. Come again any time.
