Press Release – For Immediate Release
Issued on April 18, 2003
Earlier today, Nicholas Pyers received notification that one of his articles was to be published in China, by the Beijing Macintosh User Group (Beimac).
The article Beimac has selected to publish in “beimacnified”, their online magazine, is a review on the Calendar Sharing and Promotion web site, iCalShare, that Nicholas had published on his web site earlier this week.
The iCalShare article by Nicholas may be viewed at;
While each of Nicholas’ articles have been published in AUSOM News, the printed magazine of AUSOM Incorporated, Australia’s Leading Apple Macintosh User Group, and a number of his articles have been published in various other Macintosh User Groups, both within Australia and internationally, this is the first time a Macintosh User Group in a “non-English” speaking country has published one of Nicholas’ articles.
Nicholas has been producing articles about news and events relating to Apple Computer, Inc. and associated organisations and products for over 15 years in his “spare time” as an unpaid free-lance writer and initially his articles had an Apple II focus and since the early ’90’s that focus has shifted to the Macintosh and the Internet.
While Nicholas has been extremely active within his own local Apple User Group, AUSOM, he also believes in assisting the wider Macintosh Community, who have assisted him in various ways over the years. In order to try and give something back to that helpful and friendly community, Nicholas has made his articles available to all MUGs by submitting them to two MUG Newsletter Content Sharing Mailing Lists, TMC-NLC and MUGShare, where editors can obtain additional content to use in their own MUG publications.
All MUGs need to do to be able to re-publish Nicholas’ articles is follow a few simple terms and conditions, which basically boil down to letting Nicholas know that are doing so and to keep the article “intact”.
When asked why did he think that his articles are regularly selected for re-publication by MUGs around the world, Nicholas said “[His] articles were recently described by Chuck Joiner of the MUG Center as ‘Always interesting, and especially interesting to see the view of things for a much different perspective’ and I believe that others feel the same [about my articles].”
Nicholas also points out that “The quality of the user experience when using my web site has increased dramatically since I started using the Web Site Update Staging service provided by Nemostar Computing and now that I can present my articles in a ‘professional’ format, without having to worry myself about the design and layout and just concentrate on the article content itself has helped improve the article quality and thus increase their appeal”.
