User Group Report #524: CapMac’s Recognition of Local Mac Excellence, ETCHamac, MUG Center and User Group News and “Alegria Percusiva”

Customizing your Mac in a new and unique way, a user group awards program focusing on their local Mac community, catching up on MUG Center announcements and Mac user group news, and music from two young Mac performers are all on tap for this week’s show.

Brian Georges
Brian Georges of MacMedia talks about one of the most striking products we saw at Macworld Expo, ETCHaMac. Brian tells us about their service to customize your iPod or PowerBook with custom images or text, how it works, where they want to take it next, and why it may be more affordable than you might think.

Nancy Gravley
Nancy Gravley of Capitol Macintosh talks about her group’s “Best of Austin” Awards, and a notable winner of “Best Presenter,” as well as why they feel it is important to recognize the Mac players in their home town, how their group maintains their standard of success, and her own column, Computing with Bifocals, on The Mac Observer.

Joakin and Dahiana
Dahiana Rosenblatt and Joakin Eskasan from the Berklee College of Music performed “Alegria Percusiva” for the crowd at the Geeks and Gadgets Stage at Macworld Expo, and now you can hear it too.
