September slips into gear with some interesting user group meetings on “The MUG Event Calendar.”

Apple is well represented this week with Dave Marra appearing at a Pennsylvania group and Aaron Davis presenting to a Washington D.C. group. Canon will have Diana Bowe visit a New York group to show off some of their latest cameras and lenses, while Lion will roar at groups in Illinois, California, Massachusetts and beyond. Other topics on this week’s list includes iCloud (even if it hasn’t been released), 1Password, Automator, the iPad, Skype, RapidWeaver and more.

“The MUG Event Calendar” can be found at The MUG Center (, an online resource for Mac User Groups. MUGs are good places for making new friends in the Mac community, improving your computing skills, finding solutions to technical problems, and perhaps locating a good deal on used hardware.
