August 1st - Converting Your Film to Digital and What are the Average User's Tech Interests?

Do you have old film slides and negatives that you would like to preserve and use with your modern digital devices, tools and social media sites?  Wolverine Data makes a line of film scanners for various formats.  We will demonstrate how their film scanner can quickly and easily turn your film into digital files, without installing software or even connecting a computer.

We will, through surveys and discussion, find out what tech topics are on the minds of our users today, with the aim to provide better information, more interesting presentations and  more useful assistance.

September 5th -  First will be a TBD presentation. At 8 PM Joe Kissell of Take Control Books will present “Your Digital Legacy”.
