Rob Pegoraro returns to Washington Apple Pi to do what he knows best: talk about technology. He first came to fame as a reporter and columnist for The Washington Post, and has since branched out to writing online reviews for a number of publications, as well as appearing on radio and television and appearances as a conference speaker.

This will be his first Pi appearance since Apple has announced it made "only" $50.56 billion dollars in its second quarter of the current year, followed by an 8% drop in stock price. Oh, the horror!
Rob probably won't talk about that, but rather focus on current and future technology trends, interesting discoveries he as made through the use of his personal use of personal technologies, discussions on the use of social media (such as Twitter and Facebook and Google+ and Flickr and Tumblr and Reddit and LinkedIn and Quora and About.Me and MySpace 😱) and possibly discuss all the different ways people have mispronounced his name over the years.

Bonus: we will also have a presentation by MacRecycleClinic, the child of the Pi's old Tuesday Night Clinic. MacRecycleClinic is a non-profit dedicated to refurbishing and recycling Macintosh computers and (some) peripherals, with clinic hours on most Mondays.

We probably will not be able to stream the meeting over the web, due to bandwidth limitations [note that bandwidth has also been described as "The scarcest of all natural resources, according to its provider, who appears to have a brand new car in their driveway"].

For those who may not be familiar with Maryland's location, it is easy to find as it is north, south, east and west of Virginia. Of course, Virginia is also north, south, east and west of Maryland.
