Computer Booters keep marching


Kc Coller, Publicity Director

The February 6 meeting was comfortable, meaning a warm welcome was extended from a friendly audience to two of the club’s technically-minded men. Allan Levy, technology director, and Rich Davis, communications director, stepped forward at the last minute to lead an audience participation Q & A session in place of the intended speaker who got caught in one of the areas “backed-up” traffic situations. Many computer questions were asked and answered and ideas/thoughts were shared among the members. Truly it was eye-opening in many of the computer technical areas, etc.: security, wear and tear and general use.

This meeting truly exemplified “friends helping friends.” It was heard from several members about the good feelings felt and shared at the close of the assembly. Learning about ways to protect ourselves while using a computer is certainly to our advantage. It’s been stated that there is great value in being a club member and attending the general meetings where there are knowledgeable speakers and volunteers who willingly share their savvy and interests with us. They contribute by keeping us up-to-date with computer data and “tips and tricks” important to us about things that we’d have to read about and then sort through articles trying to find a topic to understand.

Besides superb presenters, the club offers a variety of workshops through the year and as an extra bonus. Allan Levy, technology director, is happy to answer/help you with things concerning your computers before the general meetings begin. You’ll find him at the back of the meeting room before each general meeting.

Remember Ron Schott, a technology entrepreneur, who spoke with us about how the AZ Tech Council helps the technology and science businesses in Arizona thrive? This particular AZ Tech Council is Arizona’s Premier Trade Association for the science and technology companies. Ron amazed us with positive points of that council’s contributions concerning our state and the education factors within. You really will be glad if you attend!
