Mac User Groups on the Wane

Australia's Sydney Morning Herald has an article today about the decline of Mac User Groups. Once the force that brought Apple enthusiasts together to share their interests and expertise, the social face-to-face in-person MUGs are dying out and being replaced by online resources. "People work longer hours, have less leisure time and are less inclined to join clubs for social reasons," the SMH quotes Noel Jackling. User groups are apparently getting smaller and grayer.
