FACUG Technology Conference@Sea

If you are wondering why there are fewer blog posts here, the mystery is easy to solve.  Just follow us on Facebook.

The blog is still the main journal of our travels, but Facebook is so easy, we find ourselves posting to social networking sites more often.

We just got back from a cruise to the Bahamas on the Norwegian Sky out of Miami.  We were working!  Really!

The Florida Association of Computer User Groups (FACUG)and the Association of Personal Computer User Groups (APCUG) held their annual conference on the cruise.  We were seminar presenters as well as two of the more than 400 attendees. 

We did our Picasa and Outsmarting Your Smartphone seminars both twice to appreciative attendees. 


Here is Dave Graveline moderating a panel of experts with Rob Almanza of the Into Tomorrow radio show, Dave Whittle, Charles Oppermann, and Chuck Littman.


Chris participated in a Photo Safari.  We’ll do something like that for our TechnoGeeks Learning Rally in April.


Internet on the ship was nearly useless.  Under this dome is one of the satellite receivers.  $24/hr was a bit steep, but we paid it in order to support our members.

We met lots of nice folks and made some good contacts for more presentations.

The food was good and plentiful.  The crew were friendly.  The weather was perfect.  Who could ask for more?

The next Technology Conference is being scheduled for a Club Med.  FACUG is going to take the entire facility around this time next year.

Get back to work now.
