  12 [02:02] <darthrobot> Title: [UbuntuGlobalJam - Ubuntu Wiki]
  13 [02:03] <pleia2> so, once a cycle the whole Ubuntu community does an Ubuntu Global Jam
  14 [02:03] <pleia2> we didn't really participate last time (I met up with ebroder at a coffee shop last minute, but that hardly counts :))
  15 [02:04] <pleia2> this time I'm going to host one in downtown San Francisco, focused on teaching folks how to do ISO testing
  16 [02:05] <pleia2> we're 99% sure we have a venue, but I am waiting for a confirmation from andrew_wmf just so I know everything is good to go
  17 [02:05] <pleia2> then we'll announce it all
  18 [02:05] <pleia2> a project page for the team is set up if anyone else around the state wants to plan anything

  21 [02:06] <pleia2> anyone have any comments? questions?
  22 [02:07] <jtatum> Happy Sunday :)
  23 [02:07] <pleia2> I'm doing a pretty organized jam this time around, but they can be pretty casual, we've done a couple that were at Bobby G's pizzeria
  24 [02:08] <eps> Checking for conflicts ... well, you're scheduled against a Sumo Wrestling Demonstration: http://www.sfjapantown.org/Events/
  25 [02:08] <darthrobot> Title: [Japantown San Francisco: Calendar]
  26 [02:08] <pleia2> hehe
  27 [02:09] <jyo> sounds good. I'll be busy that Saturday morning/early afternoon but I'll definitely drop by.
  28 [02:09] <pleia2> great, I'm thinking of noon-4PM
  29 [02:09] <pleia2> maybe 5 :)
  30 [02:09] <pleia2> we'll order pizza around 1 probably
  31 [02:10] <jtatum> For some reason I was thinking it was a 24 hour marathon. Hehe
  32 [02:10] <pleia2> well, since it's actually 3 days it's 72 hours ;)
  33 [02:11]  * eps can eat a lot of pizza in 72 hours
  34 [02:11] <pleia2> but how long we can run a physical event it quite limited
  35 [02:11] <toddc> stopped in to say hi!!
  36 [02:11] <pleia2> (partially by the person running it, she doesn't want to do more than a 5 hour event right now)
  37 [02:11] <pleia2> <-- she
  38 [02:11] <pleia2> :)
  39 [02:12] <pleia2> alright, well if anyone else wants to run a jam somewhere and has some questions, you know where to find me
  40 [02:12] <pleia2> #topic Other upcoming events
  41 [02:13] <pleia2> so, fates have conspired so that the next SF Ubuntu Hour lands 4 days after the jam ;)
  42 [02:13] <pleia2> that's coming up on September 12th

  44 [02:13] <darthrobot> Title: [Ubuntu Hour San Francisco | Ubuntu LoCo Team Portal]
  45 [02:14] <pleia2> I emailed Jack to ask if we are participating in the Solano Stroll this year, it lands on September 9th
  46 [02:14] <pleia2> (day after the jam, yikes!)
  47 [02:14] <pleia2> he has been quite busy, but has contacted them to see if it's too late to reserve a table, so we'll see where that goes and do a call to the list for volunteers if needed
  48 [02:15] <pleia2> anyone else have anything coming up? :)
  49 [02:16] <eps> SCaLE in six months?
  50 [02:16] <pleia2> yeah, I know Gareth has been in touch with nhaines about Ubucon
  51 [02:17] <pleia2> I suspect we'll have a table again too (I just hope someone else runs it, speaking and booth running almost killed me last year :))
  52 [02:17] <pleia2> er, this year
  53 [02:18] <pleia2> #topic Any other business?
  54 [02:18] <pleia2> so, anything else?
  55 [02:18] <pleia2> Mt View ubuntu hour the other night was fun, got to see jtatum, jyo and jledbetter (that's a lot of Js!)
  56 [02:19] <jtatum> Thanks for coming, pleia2. If anyone in this part of the world needs CDs, let me know.
  57 [02:20] <eps> Start burning 12.04.1 LTS ;-)
  58 [02:20] <jtatum> Or drop by the next UH :)
  59 [02:21] <pleia2> this is totally on topic because it has penguins: https://www.calacademy.org/events/sleepovers/index.php

  61 [02:21] <pleia2> one for 21+ coming up on september 21st :)
  62 [02:21] <pleia2> I bought a tauntaun sleeping bag and all
  63 [02:23] <pleia2> ok, I guess that's it
  64 [02:24] <pleia2> thanks everyone :)
