Each month, we hold a workshop that consists of a "Question and Answer" session on any computer issues followed by a talk on a current computer topic. The presentations will be on the first Tuesday of the month, beginning at 2:00 p.m., in the meeting room at the Ewing Community Center, 999 Lower Ferry Road. The program, which is free and open to the public, will be preceded at 1:30 p.m. by an open question and answer session during which audience members will be invited to present their computer questions. No prior registration is required.
Why would I want a laptop that only runs a browser?” This is the critical question New Jersey technology consultant and graphic designer John LeMasney will explore when he presents The Computer Learning Center’s newest, free Computer Tips and Tricks program on Tuesday, June 4 - “Making Sense of the Google Chromebook”.
Come learn why I stopped carrying around my MacBook Pro and exchanged it for a Chromebook, Google’s low-cost laptop that runs just one application,” says LeMasney. “Chrome begins to make a lot of sense when you look at several converging factors, namely, the increasing availability of high-speed connectivity, the emergence of applications and cloud-based services for real-world functionality, and the ability to stay connected in rather light ways. I plan to look at both why the Chromebook works for me and the incredible power of this platform, but also why keeping a MacBook around still makes sense for some things.”
John LeMasney describes himself as an artist, designer, technologist, and consultant whose passion is to help people use technology in sensible ways to enhance their work and life. His career most recently included work as Manager of Technology Training at Rider University where he assisted faculty, staff and students in integrating technology into their work, classroom, and extracurricular activities. A Fine Arts graduate of the University of Arts in Philadelphia, he holds a Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership with distinction from Rider University, as well as LPI Level One Certification in Linux Administration.
