Next meeting: Sunday July 22, 2007 9:00PM Server: Freenode: IRC Channel #ubuntu-arizona
Last Sunday's meeting was a good one. We had two more new members, Paul aka paul928 and John aka nichpet. John lives in Flagstaff and attends NAU. He has 10 experience with different Linux distros. Paul wasn't around for the start of the meeting, but we should have some more information on him after next weeks meeting.
The Ubuntu Live Conference in Portland ended on Tuesday, and looked to be a big success. I hung out in the IRC Channel #ubuntulive while the conference was going on, and tried to follow everything that was going on. There were lots of talks, instructionals, and a lot of people getting to know each other both at the conference and afterward at pubs and eating establishments. It looked like most everyone had laptops and were plugged into the existing wifi set up for the conference. So there was a lot of crosstalk between rooms and exhibitions. All in all it looked like everyone was having a great time.
Ian McEwen is going to try and get our CafePress set up this week. For those who don't know, CafePress will take anyones logo and then offer it on Tshirts, Polos, coffee mugs, hats, etc. Really just about anything so that our team can show off its pride in the Ubuntu-Arizona Team. I'm looking forward to dropping a few bucks myself. Thanks Ian!
The Tucson members are having a meet up this Saturday at the east Speedway Bookmans. Any member is welcome to join us. I want to encourage the Phoenix members to put together something similar so that they can start putting a IRC nick to a face. I am also hoping we can have a state wide meeting of our members sometime before school starts in the fall.
