iMug is Moving!
When: 7:00pm - 9:15pm, Tuesday 26 Aug 2014.
Informal reception beginning at 6:30pm.
Where: The Library at The Dock, 107 Victoria Harbour Promenade, Docklands Vic 3008, Melbourne. The Library is 50 meters from the end of Tram Lines 11 and 48. Street parking is also available. See map and directions
Beginning 26 August, iMug is moving to a fabulous new location at The Library at The Dock, the new Melbourne city library in The Docklands. For several months iMug has been experimenting with providing online access to our meetings for members who cannot come to the CBD. We have live streamed several presentations, but the quality was quite limited by the upload speed available at Ross House. This new facility has a state-of-the-art presentation room with full AV capabilities and a robusti internet connection providing NBN speeds.
For this opening event, we have two fabulous speakers lined up. Note that space in the presentation room is limited, so if you plan to come please RSVP here right away with an email to John Beauchamp at email@example.com so we can save a spot. We do not want to disappoint you on this big event.

At our iMug meeting, Josh will discuss the huge evolution in mobile and showcase some of the work they have recently done with Telstra on Google Glass for the vision and hearing impaired.
