The current status of NYPC is unclear. For years the group was a non-profit educational organization that brought
together computer users of all levels to share their knowledge and enjoyment of computing.
The group used to offer classes and monthly meetings (below). The only aspect of the group that seems to
be currently functioning (as of March 2013) are a handful of Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
NYPC used to hold a General Meeting (really a presentation) once a month.
They were free and open to the public. The last general meeting was in 2010.
Looking for a Few Good Nerds
By William Ginsberg
Well, actually being a nerd is not required, I just like that phrase. What NYPC needs is a few more people who are intrigued by computers and related technologies, and who are willing to spend some time talking with the companies and people who are changing the world.
I have been organizing meetings for NYPC for about 15 or 16 years. So that is about 9 or 10 meetings a year, a 150 or so oh, I dont really know but quite a lot a lot of meetings.
Recently, I had to step down as NYPCs Program Chairman. My wife has a number of medical problems that need more of my time.
It has been a treat to meet many of the movers and shakers of the computer generation. NYPC has been my real computer education. I have learned a lot from our meetings and of course from our members, who my daughter calls My Nerd Herd. It is great to have a collection of available gurus to call with a hard disk problem, or a printer problem, a backup solution, or a suspicion of spyware. Our member to member help is often better than a vender's tech support. Our Photoshop SIG continues to teach me far more then the expensive Photoshop course I paid for at the New School.
NYPC offers classes and workshops. For most classes there is a modest fee,
a handful are free. Our classes are open to the public, NYPC members receive a slight discount.
Have Fun and Help NYPC
Android owners, you can download a free game that raises money for NYPC. Balance the Beer is a simple and addictive
game developed by our Java SIG. It is advertiser supported and they have donated the proceeds to NYPC. It must be a
good game because they have raised over $1,000 so far (thanks guys). Click here to find out more.
