Nice. But MUGs are still around, just weakened, waiting for a big solar flare to burn out the Internet.

There's a MUG for my area that meets once a month about 10 miles north of me. I was thinking about showing up for one session, since apparently you can show up for one meeting for free. Supposedly it's one of the largest left in the country, and they get guest speakers from time to time... last I looked they were planning on getting a couple people from the Photoshop team to talk about the (then yet to be released) next version of PS.

I remember the old days of SMUG (Stanford Macintosh Users Group). It was interesting to see Bill Atkinson doing MacPaint demos way back when, and to see the Warnock brothers demoing a program called “Digital Darkroom”.
