Technology Books, Tech Conferences, IT Courses & News
Media spreads the knowledge of innovators through
its technology books, online services, magazines, research,
and tech conferences. Since 1978, O'Reilly has been a chronicler
and catalyst of leading-edge development, homing in on the
technology trends that really matter and galvanizing their
adoption by amplifying "faint signals" from the
alpha geeks who are creating the future. An active participant
in the technology community, O'Reilly has a long history of
advocacy, meme-making, and evangelism.

Agenda For December 2014
2 - Let's Talk Tech
Unfortunately, our planned program has to be delayed to the
Let's just do this meeting among ourselves. I'm sure we can
find plenty to talk about, problems to solve, etc. Okay?
If you have an idea, please let me know. Anyone who has a
program they would like to acquaint others with you are welcome
to show it.
Please keep TUGNET in
mind as you plan your end of year contributions. Let me remind
everyone that as a 501.c.3 organization, all donations are
deductible if your tax situation allows. Donations
to the rent fund will still be matched and as funds are available
we can add meetings back into the schedule of first and third
Tuesdays (adding a second Tuesday, for example). There are
many topics and speakers that will not fit into our limited
meetings as it stands now.
Also, ink and toner cartridges,
bottles and cans are still being recycled to benefit TUGNET's
Any ideas you might have are welcome for anything TUGNET
Hope you had a very pleasant Thanksgiving with those you
December 9 - Can
I Trust Health Info on the Internet?
Dr. Garred Sexton, Preventative Medicine Specialist,
will review and show us where we can find dependable medical
information. Dr. Sexton is a neuromusculoskeletal medicine,
osteo manipulative medicine, aerospace medicine, and occupational
medicine doctor with offices in Torrance, California.
Sexton will talk about how to read medical literature
and how to effectively use information found in medical Internet
URLs, how to find dependable health information sites and
give guidance on search engines, sites for primary-care societies
and government agencies. Are you paying too much for prescription
drugs? He will also discuss drug interactions, web sites that
feature alternative medicine, and buying drugs from Canada
Dr. Sexton is a graduate of University of Arkansas
Medical School with 14 years in general practice followed
by 20 years with the Federal Aviation Administration as a
regional flight surgeon. He then retired to go work as area
medical director for American Airlines. He now works part-time
at the Occupational Health Clinic.
Yes, there will be a Q & A, but dont expect a diagnoses
of your sniffles.
- Holiday Party with Special Guest
McCarthy, well-known columnist with the Daily News,
will share the evening with us. You may remember that he retired
earlier last year after 30 years of writing for the Daily
News. He recently said, Six months into retirement
I knew the piano thing wasnt working out. Hes
bound to elaborate more so Ill just remind everyone
that he came back to the Daily News in the spring.
Im sure everyone will be interested in his take on retirement!
During his last visit he shared some of the wonderful tales
from his, at that time, newly published book. It will be such
a pleasure to hear more and I have asked him to bring a few
copies of that book, Heres to the Winners, in case you
need a last-minute gift.
Along with holiday-centric refreshments, we will be wishing
each other a truly happy Holiday
