The SGI User Group has celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2012. We began meeting in Orlando with Walt Brooks of NASA Ames as our President. A lot has happened in all these years, both with the SGI User Group and with SGI. For the last 2 plus years, SGI has taken a more supportive role in working with the user group. We appreciate their positive interest in advancing the work of the user group and growing its membership by giving added value to being a member.
