Garry Barker, Macman
Garry needs no introduction to iMug members and it is indeed fitting that Garry has offered to speak at the first iMug meeting for 2016.
Garry wrote his last Macman column for The Age and Fairfax Media in September last year. He wrote Macman for 20 years, most of that time weekly but latterly fortnightly because of constraints of space. Livewire has continued though managed from Sydney.
These 20 years which Garry covered was an extraordinary time frame in technology innovation and development. His style of writing with humour, and explanations pitched at a level understandable to the non-fanatical computer user made his writing especially entertaining as well as informative.
In his talk, Garry will be drawing on some of the highlights of those twenty years, covering as they did the rise, "fall" and rise of Steve Jobs, the dawning of the internet for the ordinary person, the development and takeover by mobile devices, and the penetration of technology into the classroom, which is of special interest to him.
Don't miss this opportunity to hear Garry's reflections from his unique experience as an outstanding journalist, who had the opportunity of attending many of the keynote events of this era both here and abroad.
…And one more thing!
Don't be suprised if our President, Les Posen, also contributes an Apple update about some of the events that have taken place over the summer period.
We look forward to seeing you at our first event for the year.
