LAST WEEK’S MEETING
Meeting chaired by PDG Michael Gregory who welcomed the Guest Speaker Shane Peterson of Concept I.T. Systems and visiting Rotarian Kerry ? from the RC of Mackay. She has been working as a librarian in the Solomon Islands; on her return to S.I she will visit libraries that have been established to make sure they are functioning properly.
PE Karen reported that the speakers at Conference were inspirational.
Bike Ed at Maleny State School has been cancelled due to a heavy school curriculum.
Shane Peterson spoke on the future of computing using the Drop Box server activity. Any file saved to Drop Box is also instantly saved to your computers, phones and the Drop Box website. It also allows you to share files with other computers. This is a great place to store back up files offsite. For further information, log onto Drop Box.
We were advised to be careful with Credit Card security. There was considerable discussion about the 4G network and NBN for network speed. This was a great talk especially for those using computers and the web in their daily work.
Shane was thanked for his talk & presented with the Rotary Humanity in Motion booklet.
