Arlington Meeting Info & Maps       


The program planners for our First Wednesday PATACS meetings in Arlington are looking for topics that members would like to have explored or questions answered - this is your opportunity to have a say in subjects addressed at this meeting. This is a smaller meeting than the Fairfax meeting, and it allows for much more interaction between members than is possible in Fairfax. And – there's the post-meeting Pizza and Salad SIG, the post-meeting social at a nearby restaurant - another value-added feature of your membership! Please send your suggestions to our meeting program planners at arlmtgpgm@patacs.org.

Peter Piper Picked PowerPoint

Presented by
Lorrin Garson

PowerPoint, nearly 31 years old, is by far the dominant presentation software.  It is a major component of Microsoft Office along with Word and Excel, and perhaps Outlook.  Originally designed for business group presentations, its use has widely expanded beyond this.  Often it is criticized that it should be used less, differently, better, or not used at all.  Nevertheless, PowerPoint is a very useful tool but not a substitute for a well though-out, prepared and presented lecture.  If a presentation is trash, don’t blame PowerPoint!  The major features and functions of PowerPoint will be presented—using PowerPoint of course.

Lorrin Garson had a long career in technical publishing of chemical information. His presentations to our computer groups are famous for their thorough research and clarity in explaining topics such as cryptography, encryption of personal data, cloud storage and the origins of personal computers.
