  • (LURM9H=Around 2011.08, since we were creating meetup tracks for Developers, it made since to create tracks for users, and I could see from event Smartphone Class: "iPhone, Android and Blackberry - For Business and Recreation" 1 listing, it was clear there were some users out there. Lucy­ had attended a few of our events already and was a huge fan of Android as a user, and she offered to be the primary lead for this track.)

Thanks to Destiny for putting up the listing for this group. Looks like he worked hard on it. We now have the info for the first meeting (subject to Donna's OK, since she has generously offered to help with this group -- very welcome help, BTW, since Donna's an Android programmer and can probably explain to us why some apps work as they do).

  • FORMAT:
    This is planned as a useful info-swap (what's hot in mobile apps, best practices in using your Android phone, preferences and updates on Android phones and carriers, etc.). We won't be dealing with actual coding and programming though we are interested in how and why apps work. We have our own leaders, dates, and locations.

    Smartphones are playing an increasingly important role in our lives -- so important, in fact, that the Orange Education Center offered a class earlier this fall on "Smartphones...for Business and Recreation." It seems to us that a smartphone users meeting is a natural development, similar to a camera club or shortwave radio club. At this point, our emphasis will be on Android phones, but we expect to deal with Android tablets later on.

  • LOCATION:
    Conveniently located on Bristol off the 405 near South Coast Plaza.

  • WHAT TO BRING:
    Bring your Android smartphone with your favorite apps, any questions you have about your phone, any good solutions you've found to phone-use issues. We will have a way for you to show your apps to other members, via a small camcorder and a 24-inch monitor. COME JOIN US!!

Our scheduling the first meeting of this group during Thanksgiving Week may not have been a good idea. I suggest we postpone until Tuesday, November 29, with all other details remaining the same.

In response to your Greet "Posted 4 minutes ago" "THIS LISTING, VERSION 1.0, I've now incorporated Lucy's text and more, and is READY TO BE EMAILED OUT FOR THE 1st TIME"

  • Looks great! Nice job, Destiny!
  • Yes, I see the logic in your addition "Bring your Android smartphone[, tablet, or other Android device]" --we we really need to cover every possible Android device users might have. I only have a smartphone, but a tablet seems straightforward (just a a bigger screen and no native-phone capability except possibly wifi VOIP); I'll also draw on out attendees knowledge of their non-smartphone devices, too. Thanks!

We're going to start the New Year right by holding our first meeting on the second Tuesday, January 10, which should give us time to publicize it properly.

We especially want to follow up on any of our members who took the training Smartphone Class: "iPhone, Android and Blackberry - For Business and Recreation". They may be interested in our group.

Another idea is to encourage programmer members to invite friends and significant others who may want to learn more about Android apps and devices.

With Android becoming more and more important in our lives, let's hope our group can get off to a good start in 2012.

Happy New Year to all!!

(LW66LS=updating the listing

  • (LW66OU=Re Lucy's delay request above,
    (LW66SP=she doesn't give her reasoning for it there, but talking to her, but she told me it's because we've gotten 0 YES RSVPs other than the 3 event leaders, and since she still only can meet on Tue (not Thu) and and scheduling this new event any later would put it even more seriously in conflict with Christmas & New Year this month, so might as well delay it a full month.)
    (LW66U3=per that, I do do the rescheduling & matching listing updates.
    (LW69LS=Due to usual Meetup bugs, as I've seen before, moving the date forward a month caused the 1st instance to break from the rest of the series. Consequently, both will need to be manually updated to keep them in sync, until the 1st is done.)
    ))

    (to=(LTNVQ2=Overview: GET-MORE-USE-FROM & SUPER-CHARGE YOUR ANDROID DEVICES! (LW4952="FORMAT: ..a useful info-swap ..)..))
    (as=to add the special promotional text here plus cut unneeded "This is planned as"))
