“Current Trends in Personal Technology-2024”

MEETING DATE: Thursday, January 25, 2024

6:45PM - 8:45PM (Zoom meeting room opens at 6:45 PM; Meeting starts at 7 PM)

via Zoom virtual meeting.


Presenter and BCUG Board Member Bill Chriss will discuss, at the January 2024 BCUG General Meeting, the current trends in the personal technology experience, looking back at past trends as well as looking forward to new ones, and how those trends have affected how we live and work. You may remember Bill's previous presentations to the club where he described the personal computing and Internet experience at those points in time and how they changed how we communicated and “computed”.

This presentation on Thursday, Jan. 25, looks at the state, going into 2024, of personal technology, new computing experience and the trends that are driving this experience. He'll also offer some provocative discussion about the issues and opportunities provided by those advances.

Bill’s Background

Bill is a long-time BCUG member and new Trustee who has a long history of personal computing, from the days of the Atari 400, and the Internet, running the UNIX version of the Mosaic browser on a SUN workstation before the PC version was available.

While professionally he developed computers that masquerade as business telephones, his home hobbyshop is filled with several com puters with various operating systems and applications and a smart phone and tablet that gives him a computing and communications experience while on the move.
