Gabe's Favorite Websites

   Gabe Goldberg

Since the Web has billions or gazillions -- nobody really knows how many -- of individual pages, it's nearly impossible to find the "best" website for a given purpose. But Google searches often find gems because they rank pages by popularity: pages to which many sites link are deemed better than "orphan" pages not linked. Another way to find useful/interesting/fun pages is to share favorites with others. This presentation highlights websites one experienced Web traveler visits often. Bring your top websites to share with the audience too!

Gabe evangelizes for user groups, believing that user groups are an antidote to feeling alone with technical activities, challenges, problems, and triumphs. He's enjoyed being APCUG Region 2 Advisor for many years.

He supports many national and local user groups. He served as Director of (Meeting) Programs for Washington, DC-area CPCUG, one of the oldest and largest PC user groups, where he organized and chaired the Internet SIG. He served on User Support Team for CPCUG's domain and on CPCUG's Board Of Directors. He was founding member and director of several local user groups, and held management jobs in a national IBM user group. He has given hundreds of presentations to these and other groups and conferences. He has facilitated and helped exploit donations of commercial hardware and software to user groups. He's presently Director and APCUG Representative for PATACS, Potomac Area Technology and Computer Society.

Gabe is a technology writer, editor, and consultant targeting audiences from consumers to computer professionals.

He worked for a small software company as VP of Technology and Business Development, responsible for product planning, evolution, and development, along with documentation and customer support.

He also worked in the leading-edge data center of a federally chartered not-for-profit consulting organization where he developed widely used software tools aiding other installations' mainframe use; before that he designed and developed operating systems at IBM.

Gabe shared responsibility for AARP's online Computers and Technology Web site and forums; before that, he co-hosted America Online's advanced Internet forum.

There are a group of club members who regularly attend PPCUG meetings. However, Club Leadership including those who have been arranging meetings would appreciate your assistance. We are looking for volunteers to step up and take a leadership role. Any role that you take will look good on your LinkedIn profile!
