  52 [03:15] <epikvision>  question: where is the global jam held at?
  53 [03:15]  * philipballew has stickers to bring thanks to jtatum 
  54 [03:16] <Darkwing> They are all over... Keep checking http://loco.ubuntu.com/teams/ubuntu-california for information on it.
  55 [03:16] <Darkwing> epikvision: ^^
  56 [03:16] <eps> We don't even have it listed on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects
  57 [03:16] <jtatum> or the mailing list hopefully
  58 [03:16] <philipballew> would it be possible as a loco to do a online global jam?
  59 [03:16] <epikvision> haha
  60 [03:16] <epikvision> :D
  61 [03:16] <Darkwing> As long as someone organizes it.
  62 [03:16] <Darkwing> I normally do some Kubuntu Jams
  63 [03:16] <Darkwing> online
  64 [03:16] <jledbetter1> philipballew: Yes.
  65 [03:17] <philipballew> since were such a big state, we just find a few bugs and all work on them.
  66 [03:17] <jbermudes> So what would that look like besides just people talking in the IRC channel like usual?
  67 [03:17] <jledbetter1> And be here for those that get stuck on how to fix.
  68 [03:17] <jledbetter1> organized time we're at the keyboard?
  69 [03:18] <philipballew> maybe, or we just find say 5 bugs as a loco is different levels of difficulty and maybe 2 or 3 work on one together.
  70 [03:19] <Darkwing> Anyone have anything else to add? If you are doing a Jam, please add it to the wiki and to loco.u.c
  71 [03:20] <Darkwing> If not I have to get ready for an interview tomorrow.
  72 [03:20] <Darkwing> Cheers!
