WEEKLY NEWSLETTER 5 - 10 MARCH 2018

Hello and Welcome,

Committee News:

Stephen South, our Website Designer, was presented with his Life-Membership at the AGM. He will also join the existing members on the Committee. All other Office Bearers of the Club were re-elected unopposed.

New Main Meeting Venue a Success:

The AGM and Main Meeting of Feb 27 were held at the new location, the Carmichael/Dowling Rooms on the 1st floor of 280 Pitt Street. It was small enough to not need a 2nd microphone for members' questions, but big enough to seat several dozen members.

The thin black Venetian blinds completely blocked the afternoon, summer sunlight, so speakers and members felt very comfortable there.

Alex demonstrated the Google Home as well as the Apple Homepod which were heard very well at the back of the double room.

All in all a very successful move.

Roger Foulds recently accepted the invitation of Google (via ASCCA) to attend a get-together on Monday Feb 26 to Google's local headquarters at Level 5, 48 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont.

Talk with Google

Google invited 10 ASCCA members to join a structured discussion to better understand how Australians use and interact with technology, and to explore areas in which Google's emerging technology could be further developed to help Australians in their daily lives.

It'll be interesting to hear Roger's impressions of the day with Google.
