What are the badges? 19:14 < Yasumoto> so the massachusetts LoCo team 19:14 < cactaur4> adaminla: They're basically aluminum stickers that say "Powered by Ubuntu". And we have an opportunity to buy some in bulk. 19:14 < Yasumoto> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MassachusettsTeam/Projects/AluminiumCaseBadgesCase 19:15 < Yasumoto> So far we've got three people donating 19:15 < adaminla> Cool. What are the details? 19:15 < Yasumoto> we're getting 300 badges for the team 19:15 < adaminla> for how much? 19:15 < Yasumoto> which comes out to $72 19:16 < Yasumoto> we're planning on selling these for about $1 at events that we put on 19:16 < Yasumoto> which will hopefully be a good fundraiser for the team 19:16 < adaminla> cool 19:16 < sn9> there are going to be events? 19:16 < cactaur4> sn9: Hopefully, if things start looking good for us. 19:16 < Yasumoto> yeah 19:17 < Yasumoto> I think it's really going to depend on people setting things up in their area 19:17 < Yasumoto> like I want to set up a Gutsy release/install party 19:17 < adaminla> In feb there's the so cal linux gig\ 19:18 < Yasumoto> yeah, I want us to have a presence there too 19:18 < Yasumoto> so we'll see 19:18 < adaminla> how much do we have raisrd do far? 19:18 < Yasumoto> so if anyone can donate to help us out, just add yourself to the wiki and send an email to the list 19:18 < Yasumoto> bmathis is donating $20, I've got $10, and Flannel's covering the rest 19:19 < adaminla> I can put in $20 also 19:19 < cactaur4> So, are we doing the thing where we get a badge for every $1 we donate? 19:19 < Yasumoto> adaminla: that'd be really sweet :) 19:20 < bmathis> im the bestest! 19:20 < Yasumoto> cactaur4: yeah, it'll probably be something like that 19:20 < Yasumoto> bmathis: *high five* :) 19:20 < cactaur4> awesome 19:21 < AlgorthmicContro> sweet 19:21 < adaminla> how do i donate the money? 19:21 < Yasumoto> I just think it's a great example of things getting done when people just do things 19:21 < cactaur4> That's the next thing. 19:21 < Yasumoto> adaminla: I'll talk to you about that in a bit (check or mail order) 19:21 < cactaur4> Yasumoto: Oh, we have that straightened out? 19:22 < AlgorthmicContro> Yeah, could we do money orders? 19:22 < Yasumoto> cactaur4: yeah, we're going to send them in to Flannel 19:22 < Yasumoto> and then he'll send them out 19:22 < AlgorthmicContro> So to....Flannel's address? 19:22 < Yasumoto> yeah, if you want to donate, send him an email 19:22 < Yasumoto> and he'll give you his address 19:22 < cactaur4> Shouldn't we kinda put that on the wiki? It's a little important. 19:23 < Yasumoto> yeah, sorry 19:23 < Yasumoto> I'll fix it after the meeting 19:23 < cactaur4> ok, cool 19:23 < Yasumoto> (or someone can do it now :D ) 19:23 < cactaur4> I'll do it. 19:23 < Yasumoto> cactaur4++ 19:23 < Yasumoto> (does that make you cactaur5?) 19:23 < bmathis> haha 19:23 < Yasumoto> so basically 19:23 < Yasumoto> if you're interested in helping out the team, check out the wiki page 19:24 < Yasumoto> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam 19:24 < Yasumoto> scroll down to "Headlines and ToDo" 19:24 < Yasumoto> and add yourself to the list :) 19:24 < Yasumoto> any other questions about case badges? 19:25 < bmathis> nope 19:25 < cactaur4> Just to make sure, Flannel's e-mail is neal (at) busset (dot) com, correct. (Hiding because this is being logged). 19:25 < cactaur4> ? 19:25 < Yasumoto> lemme check 19:25 < Yasumoto> yeah 19:26 < Yasumoto> wait 19:26 < Yasumoto> neal (at) bussett (d0t) com 19:26 < Yasumoto> (two t's) 19:26 < cactaur4> or, I can just point it to his wiki, and people could figure it out from there 19:26 < sn9> neal, not neil? 19:27 < cactaur4> That way, his e-mail won't be on the internet more than necessary. And I won't be held responsible for any misspellings. 19:27 < cactaur4> I'll do that. 19:28 < Yasumoto> yeah, for sure 19:28 < Yasumoto> sn9: neal 19:28 < Yasumoto> okay, let's move on to branding 19:29 < Yasumoto> So a lot of teams 19:29 < Yasumoto> have really sweet logos and such 19:30 < Yasumoto> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MassachusettsTeam 19:30 < Yasumoto> is a quick example 19:30 < Yasumoto> and I really like https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam 19:30 < Yasumoto> I have some graphic design experience 19:31 < bmathis> we can make one that says Calibuntu 19:31 < sn9> how about a state-of-CA going through the doughnut hole of the ubuntu logo? 19:31 < Yasumoto> but that's pretty much with adobe photoshop/illustrator 19:31 < Yasumoto> and I think we have way more talented people that could make something amazing 19:31 < cactaur4> I think it would be awesome of Arnold was on it. 19:31 < Yasumoto> haha 19:31 < cactaur4> And terminating something. 19:31 < sn9> we'd need his permission for that 19:32 < cactaur4> oh, never mind then. 19:32 < Yasumoto> mm, yeah, we would 19:32 < bmathis> ill give him a call and see what he says 19:32 < Yasumoto> well if someone whips one up, I'll write the email to him :) 19:32 < Yasumoto> haha 19:32 < Yasumoto> bmathis: alright, you win :D 19:32 < cactaur4> I will too! 19:33 < Yasumoto> haha 19:33 < bmathis> schwarzy didnt answer 19:33 < Yasumoto> so this is kind of the thing where it'd be cool to have a few people whip up a few designs 19:33 < Yasumoto> even if you're not that talented, maybe sketch something out really quick 19:34 < Yasumoto> and then work with someone that knows an image editing program to make it slick 19:34 < cactaur4> Or learn how to use GIMP, either way. 19:34 < Yasumoto> yeah, exactly 19:34 < Yasumoto> and also, it might be cool to have a motto or slogan that we can use 19:34 < sn9> kubuntu people could use krita 19:35 < Yasumoto> sn9: yeah, good call 19:36 < Yasumoto> so anyways 19:36 < cactaur4> Hooray for free software! 19:37 < Yasumoto> if someone wants to start up a page on the wiki 19:37 < Yasumoto> or a thread on the forum 19:37 < Yasumoto> we can keep everything in one place 19:37 < Yasumoto> does anyone want to work on heading up our "Logo Contest!!!"? 19:37 < Yasumoto> (feel free to change the name) 19:38 < bmathis> maybe post the designs on the wiki and then a poll on the forums for the best one? 19:38 < cactaur4> makes sense 19:38 < bmathis> of course i does 19:38 < bmathis> :) 19:38 < Yasumoto> bmathis: that's a good idea 19:38 < bmathis> thanks! 19:39 < Yasumoto> I think there was some concern about spreading it out into too many places though 19:39 < AlgorthmicContro> I another hooray for bmathis 19:39 < AlgorthmicContro> :) 19:39 < Yasumoto> but it'd be a good way to display everything 19:39 < bmathis> yeah, but you cant have a poll on the wiki page and we havent merged launchpad with anything else, so it seems like a viable solution until then 19:40 < Yasumoto> bmathis: point taken 19:40 < bmathis> i rock! 19:40 < Yasumoto> haha 19:40 < Yasumoto> *high five* 19:40 < cactaur4> I roll 19:40 < bmathis> haha 19:41 < Yasumoto> so to summarize everything: 19:41 < Yasumoto> We need a logo 19:41 < Yasumoto> people'll hopefully sketch something out 19:41 < Yasumoto> (even if it has ... arnold...) 19:42 < cactaur4> ESPECIALLY if it has Arnold 19:42 < Yasumoto> yes cactaur4 ... 19:42 < cactaur4> ok, go on 19:42 < Yasumoto> and then we'll work on voting/improving a design 19:42 < Yasumoto> maybe even combining ideas from a few 19:42 < Yasumoto> and then we can do a buncha cool stuff 19:42 < cactaur4> Should the art be under a GPL? 19:43 < Yasumoto> hm 19:43 < Yasumoto> I don't really know much about licensing 19:43 < bmathis> maybe creative commons 19:43 < Yasumoto> but yeah, something like that 19:43 < cactaur4> yeah, that makes more sense. 19:44 < bmathis> im on a roll tonite 19:44 < Yasumoto> any other comments about branding? 19:44 < sn9> a barrel roll? 19:45 < bmathis> umm... any roll thats a good roll! 19:45 < bmathis> nope... movin on 19:45 < Yasumoto> cactaur4: I turn the floor over to you 19:45 < cactaur4> w00t 19:45 < Yasumoto> for the last topic on the agenda 19:45 < cactaur4> Ok, the last topic, IRC Parties! 19:46 < cactaur4> I think they'll be a good idea at spreading the community part of the LoCo team. 19:46 < sn9> irc is a limited part of the community 19:47 < cactaur4> yeah, but I think having certain parties would be good for bringing in other parts of the community for a short time. 19:47 < cactaur4> They may not be like some of us who stay on IRC for hours at a time. 19:47 < cactaur4> And we can advertise them on the forums, the wiki, wherever else. 19:47 < sn9> that does not counter irc's negative reputation 19:48 < cactaur4> sn9: Which is? 19:48 < sn9> hmm? 19:48 < cactaur4> What is IRC's negative reputation? 19:49 < Yasumoto> it's difficult to use 19:49 < Yasumoto> (one of the criticisms) 19:49 < cactaur4> well, like I'm doing right now, there's a applet which lets you connect. 19:49 < sn9> internet for $400, alex 19:49 < cactaur4> You don't have to download a whole client. 19:50 < sn9> right. i put a java chat on svlug.org, for example 19:50 < cactaur4> yeah 19:51 < cactaur4> And it'll be super casual. We could even have people stream online radio to mimic the music that goes on in a real party. 19:51 < sn9> stream over irc? 19:51 < cactaur4> well, we could put an address to it in the topic bar. 19:51 < sn9> ok... 19:52 < adaminla> xchat works well and is easy to instal lfrom Apps. add remove 19:52 < sn9> yes, but too easily confused with xchat-gnome 19:52 < cactaur4> Yeah, and some people may like IRC and choose to stay. 19:53 < cactaur4> People who never really used it before. 19:53 < sn9> people not yet on ubuntu could go to http://b0at.tx0.org/xchat 19:53 < AlgorthmicContro> cactaur4: I like the idea about mincing music 19:53 < AlgorthmicContro> party music* 19:54 < adaminla> get dowwwwn 19:54 < cactaur4> So, any questions about parties? 19:54 < adaminla> is? 19:55 < cactaur4> is what? 19:55 < adaminla> I think if we can work out how to do it it would be a good way to spread the word. 19:56 < Yasumoto> it reminds me of the #ubuntu-us meet n' greet a few weeks ago 19:57 < cactaur4> Yeah, but we'll cut out the other 49 states for now. 19:57 < Yasumoto> haha, yeah 19:57 < Yasumoto> and it might help people that may not be able to make the meetings still get involved 19:58 < cactaur4> yeah 19:58 < cactaur4> Plus, it could get your friends on IRC! 19:58 < cactaur4> and maybe even on Ubuntu! 19:58 < adaminla> are most of the folks in here tonight in so cal or no cal? 19:58 < sn9> roll call! 19:58 < bmathis> central cali 19:58 < cactaur4> So Cal 19:59 < sn9> norcal 19:59 < Yasumoto> SoCal ftw 19:59 < adaminla> Long /Beach 19:59 < sn9> if there are no more votes, the socals have it 19:59 < cactaur4> w00t! 20:00 < cactaur4> Ok, any more questions about IRC parties? 20:00 < Yasumoto> good job team!! :D 20:00 < bmathis> i think im the only one in the central valley 20:00 < Yasumoto> cactaur4: if there's anything I can do to help, lemme know 20:00 < Yasumoto> otherwise, have fun :) 20:00 < cactaur4> awesome! 20:00 < Scunizi> so cal 20:00 < Yasumoto> Scunizi: yes! 20:00 < cactaur4> Ok, gotta dash now. 20:00 < cactaur4> See you all! 20:01 < Yasumoto> kk, later cactaur4 20:01 < Yasumoto> alright guys 20:01 < Yasumoto> anyone have anything else they want to bring up? 20:01 < Yasumoto> questions/comments? 20:01 < sn9> the sky is blue 20:02 < Yasumoto> alright cool 20:02 < Yasumoto> Don't forget to add yourself to the Team Map https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Members 20:02 < Yasumoto> and if you can, it'd be awesome if you could donate for the case badges 20:02 < adaminla> so i'll send flannel an e-mail and we'll move the badge thing forwaard. 20:02 < Yasumoto> yep 20:02 < sn9> i'm already on the launchpad page, so a sync to the wiki will bing me in anyway 20:03 < Yasumoto> yeah, gotcha 20:03 < sn9> *bring 20:03 < Yasumoto> but I think we'll still need your zip code 20:03 < sn9> 94127 20:03 < Yasumoto> kk, gotcha 20:03 < Yasumoto> alright guys, thanks for coming! 20:03 < Yasumoto> the #ubuntu-california meeting is now over at 20:03
