General Meeting:

Your Digital Life, Part 3: On TV

June 4, 2011, 9:30 a.m., George Mason University

Note: this meeting really is the May General Meeting, even if it is on the first Saturday in June. We could tell you why, but it is complicated and involves math.

The May General Meeting (in June) is the third part of the Your Digital Life series and it will take you further into the digital world. The Pi’s management believes that there is much more to this topic, and besides presentations at General Meetings, there will be other references to this theme in the Journal and elsewhere.

The meeting will feature two presenters Travis Good and Bo Huttinger. Topics to be covered will be Apple TV (2nd generation) and remote access to your Mac via iChat, Google Remote and logmein.com. As usual, comments from the audience will undoubtedly expand the scope to cover a wide range of real and imaginary uses.

There will of course be the regular fare of Questions and Answers and Back to Basics. After a lunch of subs from Subway, the Mobile Lifestyle Special Interest Group will convene for their monthly meeting.

The meeting will be held on the GMU campus in the Enterprise building, Room 178.

Remember, if you cannot attend the meeting in person, you can view the live Webcast of the meeting. Check out the URL shown below:


The main portions of the meeting will be broadcast,which means during the coffee break, the meeting will be shown as off line.

If you intend to view the meeting on the Web, go to the site ahead of time and register yourself with the Ustream site. There is no cost and it will allow the meeting monitor to see exactly who is signed in and viewing the meeting.

Important Parking Information: Two Options, Paid and Free

The Sandy Creek Parking Garage is fee-based facility. It is more convenient and closer to the meeting location. The Pi will subsidize the facility's parking fee by providing vouchers for donation request of $3.00.

If using the parking garage, park in Visitor's area; i.e., the lowest level. Take the elevator to the third floor (Campus Level), and exit along the sky bridge.

After the meeting, exit the garage using the exits marked for Validated Tickets. Your parking ticket goes in first. Then the validation ticket goes in next. If you have any problems, there is a speaker box for calling the parking lot attendant at the checkout point.

Free parking in Lot A (see map below)

Park as close to Mattaponi River Lane as possible, then walk north along that road toward the main campus buildings. The sidewalk route takes you directly to the side of Enterprise Hall, on your left. The meeting room is located on the second floor, accessible via outside stairs or via an elevator on your right as soon as you enter the building through the doors behind the outside stairs. We will endeavor to have signs posted to help guide you to the right location. It is at least a five-minute walk from Lot A and up a slight incline. We will be using a golf cart along the route, to offer rides to those who want or need a lift.

Handicapped Parking: There are three handicap parking spaces next to Enterprise Hall that can be used by members, on a first come first served basis. Have your Handicap Sticker showing on the dashboard or on the rear-view mirror.
