First of, welcome to the official blog of the Princeton MacIntosh Users Group ( PMUG ). What is a blog? Depends on who you ask. This is what wikipedia has to say:
A blog (a contraction of the term “Web log“) is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual , with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. “Blog” can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
That’s a pretty good description although some well known blogs ( e.g http://www.macuser.com/) are maintained by groups of bloggers.
I have been blogging ( with very little fame ) for about 6 years. At first I blogged about random stuff. The tag line for my blog, Island in the Net, is “The blog of the tech geek know as Khurt Williams. Here are my inchoate thoughts on Linux, Google, Apple, Perl, PHP, information security, Open Source, Windows, OS X…..”. Recently I have been writing up articles in response to the interesting questions I get from my non-technical family and friends. Stuff like, “How do I use email securely” and “How do I install apps on a Mac”.
So now the PMUG executive committee has asked me to blog for you. I have no idea what that means. Really. So once you read this, drop me a note in the comment form below or via email. Let me know what you like and don’t like.
