The BMUG PD-ROM Volume I CD-ROM from 1988. It contains a vast amount
of 80's freeware and shareware, along with several BMUG newsletters
ranging from Fall of 1984 to Spring of 1987.
BMUG was an education non-profit corporation which promoted the
exchange of information about graphical interface computers, including
the Apple Macintosh. Located in Berkeley, California, BMUG provided
valuable services to computer users in the San Francisco Bay Area and
around the world since 1984.
BMUG was one of the world's largest user groups with thousands of
members covering the range from absolute novice to industry leader.
Because of the diverse demands of their members, they had earned a
reputation for being friendly, knowledgeable, and innovative.
BMUG held meetings every Thursday at the University of California in
Berkeley to discuss topics such as Music, Modems, A/UX, Graphics and
Desktop Publishing, CAD, Macintosh Basics, HyperCard, Programming,
Database Development, and Professional Computing.
The BMUG Newsletter was published semi-annually and sent free to all
members. This prodigious work always totaled more than 300 pages of
commentaries, tutorials, and reviews. BMUG accepted no advertising for
the Newsletter, so each issue is a solid collection of unbiased writing
unlike anything else in the industry. The newsletter was widely read for
the expertise, opinion, and good humor contained in each issue.
