Clearwater, Florida (November 21, 2016) — On behalf of the Soft Network Users Group, SCC Soft Computer is pleased to provide this status update regarding the 2017 SNUG membership drive and annual conference.
SNUG will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017 with a retrofuturism* theme: Blast from the Past | Remembering the Future. Throughout 2017, the Soft Network Users Group will be reflecting on how far they’ve come since 1992 — from a forum where SCC users could freely discuss SCC’s products with an eye on improvements we could make to better suit our clients’ needs to an independent entity just seven years later when SNUG incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1999. We couldn’t imagine back then how quickly this SCC users group would gel. Over the years, SNUG has provided a powerful voice to represent what SCC users need and want from their laboratory information systems.
Over the past twenty-five years, it has been a pleasure to watch SNUG become the powerful, proactive, and persuasive organization it is today. We at SCC Soft Computer congratulate the Soft Network Users Group on 25 years of continuing education, constant product advancement, and collegial friendship. We look forward to continuing this journey of innovation and excellence for many decades to come.
*Retrofuturism — the future as seen from the past and the past as seen from the future (depictions of the future produced in an earlier era). If futurism is a ‘science’ bent on anticipating what will come, then retrofuturism is the remembering of that anticipation. It can be defined as nostalgia for a future that never was.
