This week’s “MUG Event Calendar” features two special speakers, and anniversary celebration for a FCP group, and lots of interesting topics.

Adam Engst of “TidBITS” and Take Control will visit a group in his home state of New York, while digital photography expert Derrick Story will take the stage at a California group. SF Cutters, the San Francisco Final Cut Pro User Group, will celebrate 11 years in business, with several special guests, including Bonfire Labs, Adobe and Aja.

Other topics on this week’s agenda include SuperSync, creating a home entertainment network, BusyCal, iPhoto ‘11, going paperless, home networking … oh yeah, and a little something called the iPad 2.
