Mind Mapping Software

iThoughts

At this month’s General Meeting, Chris Wysocki will do a presentation on Mind Mapping Software.

So what is Mind Mapping?  Mind Mapping is a highly effective way of getting information in and out of your brain. Mind mapping is a creative and logical means of note-taking and note-making that literally “maps out” your ideas.

The Diablo Valley Mac Users Group helps Macintosh users get the most out of their computers. Software, hardware, digital filmmaking, photography—these subjects and more are covered in the club’s monthly General Meeting, workshops, and Special Interest Groups.

You are invited to attend our general meetings at the Pacheco Community Center for vendor and club presentations on new hardware, software, and other items of Mac interest. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. with a Question & Answer segment where you are welcome to ask about your own Mac problems; there’s a break during which the club Mac experts answer your questions one-on-one, and a raffle in addition to the main presentation, usually by a software publisher or hardware manufacturer.

Dues for the entire family are $40 per year-a bargain! Especially since it includes access to the club’s award-winning monthly newsletter, ApplePRESS, and attendance at all Special Interest Group meetings including the monthly MacClinic, where club experts diagnose and repair what’s wrong with your Mac as well as helping you with software upgrades, hard-drive replacement, and similar improvements.

This Wednesday evening is DVMUG’s Main Meeting at the Pacheco Community Center, where DVMUG’s President, Chris Wysocki, will have a presentation about Mind Maps and the software that makes it fun and easy to make Mind Maps. In addition to explaining what Mind Maps are and their uses, we will have a demonstration of Mind Maps in iThoughts.

If you have a Mac with problems, then call Rick Calicura on (925) 228-4992 for an appointment for Saturday’s MacClinic and DVMUG’s staff of experts will help fix or upgrade your computer. Be sure to call early, if you’d like an appointment for this Saturday. The MacClinic is a free clinic; however, donations are gratefully accepted that help support the club.
