User Group Report #320: Macintosh Sisters, Small Dog, Macworld Expo MUG Volunteers, Student Events, and Vendor Deals

Women in the Macintosh User Group community are discussed by two of our guests, as well as lots of User Group University and Macworld Expo news and event information, vendor deals, and a busy MUG Event Calendar.

Nyx Wolfwalker of Macintosh Sisters talks about why a Macintosh User Group directed at women is needed in today’s environment, what they offer, how they protect an environment that fosters women in technology, and why it is necessary to do so.
