HAVE YOUR COMPUTER QUESTIONS ANSWERED!

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 topics 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! (SIG Suspended - pending Covid resolution) Please send your suggestions to our meeting program planners at arlmtgpgm@patacs.org.

The History of Technology:
From Fire to Fiber Optic
Presented by Ray Van Dyke


From humankindís earliest days tools were key to survival. From the first engineers to today, technology has driven us to new heights, and many cultures have shared in this endeavor. This lecture will explore many of these contributions and showcase the acceleration of technological innovation through the millennia to today. Contributions of the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks and others, through the Dark Ages to the Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution and the Information Age, the Biotechnology Era and other critical revolutions of today, will all be discussed in a lively format, placing various inventors in their times..


Ray Van Dyke is an intellectual property/patent practitioner and educator in the Washington, DC area. He is the Chair of the DC Chapter of the Licensing Executives Society (LES), Chair of IP Section for the Bar Association of Montgomery County, Maryland, a Fellow of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA), and involved in other legal and technical groups. He has taught and lectured on IP across the world, and writes on issues in IP. He received his BS in Mathematics/Computer Science and Masters in Computer Science from UNC at Chapel Hill, where he also got his law degree. Having practiced in large firms, he founded his own IP consulting firm in 2010 to better service his clients with their various IP needs.



Learn in 30

A Space to Work In --
or Two or Three
Presented by Tom Gutnick

There's a great productivity feature that seems to be a great secret, whether you're working with Windows, MacOS, or Linux. If you only ever do one thing at a time on your computer, you can skip this, but if you're frequently juggling lots of open windows for various projects, here's a way to work more effectively. Virtual desktops (also called spaces or workspaces or virtual displays) allow you to organize related windows into independent compartments, and all it takes is a few clicks or keystrokes. Iíll show you what it can do for you and how to set it up to do it.

PATACS member Tom Gutnick is the owner of Sunny Banana IT Consulting -- Technology without the Turmoil, and is an instructor at NOVA Community College.
