Free Computer Q&A at Third Place Commons
For Fall to Spring 2023-2024, we are alternately online via Zoom and in-person at the Stadler Meeting Room in the Third Place Commons, just north of Seattle in Town Center at Lake Forest Park (directions and time below). These small group sessions are presented as a community service. Typically sessions are on the fourth Sunday of every other month with an adjustment to the third Sunday to avoid weekends adjacent to Thanksgiving and Memorial Day.
Since we are alternating between in-person and online, we will be in-person at the Stadler room in September, November, February, and April. Online sessions will be on Zoom in October, January, March and May. No sessions in December, and June-August, our traditional Summer break.
Fall will start our 14th year of sessions. Usually the session begins with a presentation on a topic of general interest. Then we spend the rest of our time chatting about the questions you bring to the room or submit in advance as time permits. Details are below:
Next Session: September 24th, 2:00 PM (in-person)
To Be Determined
We will set the next seasons topics by Mid-July...and you can help suggest topic for us! Send email for with your ideas for the next year of Q&A sessions by July 7th with the subject line "New topics for next season."
Some of the topics covered since 2011 include:
Your Computer Questions and Concerns
Either submit your questions in advance or bring them to the session to
share. You can also bring your laptop to show problem or illustrate your
question. Highly technical or system-specific questions may be beyond the scope of the session and require a separate one-on-one session. Submit your question in advance if you aren't sure whether it can be answered during the Q&A.
Submit Your General Topic
Have a topic idea you think would be interesting to discuss? Email your topic ideas to me. Best topics are ones that are not specific to any one device but common to many or all devices. Defining technology, security or privacy concerns or "how to" can also be helpful.
