|I'm writing an article about The Golden Era of User Groups, and I'd love your input.|
This idea came to me when I mentioned user groups to a young person who'd never heard of them. Oh no! It was such a special time of community support! Let's not permit the memories to go away!
So tell me about your experiences!
When, where, what type of group, how big it was.
Your role, if relevant. (e.g. I was president of one group, VP of another, and on an international board of user groups... you might be "just a member" which is fine!)
Your memories: How involved were you, for how long? What drew you to the user group? What made it special?
Mostly I want to hear stories, anecdotes, and nostalgia. So please share! (And let me know if I can quote you, at least by first name.)
