So I’m in central New Jersey, and unfortunately I haven’t found a Macintosh User Group locally, all of them seem to be far too north or south of where I am located. So I began thinking about creating my own Macintosh User Group. The problem is I am busy as it is with work and my life. I wouldn’t be able to handle renting rooms for discussions or managing events, not to mention the cost of this.
So this got me thinking… why does a user group need to meet in a physical place? The internet is a fantastic place to share ideas, connect with people, and help others. There’s no reason why a Macintosh User Group needs to be restricted to one area. Yes, I understand that meeting people face to face is a fun and exciting thing to do. And I would love to gather this way with those who share the same excitement and enthusiasm for Macs, but this way a physical meeting isn’t required off the bat. Things are allowed to grow, surely a group meet-up / picnic in the park is not out of the question.
So why not? Let’s see where this goes…
