   6 [02:00] <pleia2> agenda!
   7 [02:01] <pleia2> so I added the item
   8 [02:01] <pleia2> #topic Upcoming events, are we participating?
   9 [02:01] <DonkeyHotei> item?
  10 [02:01] <pleia2> we have two big things coming up:
  11 [02:01] <DonkeyHotei> ok.
  12 [02:01] <pleia2> UbuntuGlobalJam September 12-14
  13 [02:01] <pleia2> Software Freedom Day September 20th
  14 [02:01] <pleia2> so far I haven't heard much about us doing either
  15 [02:01] <pleia2> I think jyo was thinking about doing something for the jam though
  16 [02:01] <pleia2> (I'll be on the wrong side of the country during it)
  17 [02:02] <pleia2> any thoughts?
  18 [02:02] <Roguehorse> Where is the SFD going on?
  19 [02:02] <DonkeyHotei> any coordination with fedora folk regarding 9/20?
  20 [02:03] <pleia2> California seems empty UbuntuGlobalJam September 12-14
  21 [02:03] <pleia2> grr
  22 [02:03] <pleia2> http://softwarefreedomday.org/map/index.php?year=2014
  23 [02:03] <darthrobot`> Title: [SFD 2014 Map: Find an event in your area!]
  24 [02:03] <pleia2> not to say none exist, but on the official site where events can register, there aren't any
  25 [02:04] <DonkeyHotei> sounds like a first
  26 [02:04] <Roguehorse> Just found that..thanks
  27 [02:04] <pleia2> DonkeyHotei: no coordination with anyone so far, if you know of Fedora folks doing something, please do chat with them :)
  28 [02:04] <Roguehorse> So we would have to host one?
  29 [02:05] <pleia2> yeah, unless we find a LUG or other group already doing something
  30 [02:05] <DonkeyHotei> Roguehorse: it might be nice
  31 [02:06] <Roguehorse> I'm always game for doing stuff I just stink at the coordination
  32 [02:06] <nhaines> Roguehorse: find a friend and help out with coordination.  You'd be surprised how quickly you learn.  :)
  33 [02:06]  * nhaines vaguely remembers SCALE6X....
  34 [02:07] <DonkeyHotei> i attended scale6x
  35 [02:08] <Roguehorse> nhaines: Everyone in my LUG says they're too busy to help with anything...thus very slow progress
  36 [02:08] <DonkeyHotei> your lug meets in a busy area
  37 [02:08] <Roguehorse> I guess
  38 [02:09] <nhaines> Roguehorse: any LoCo members nearby?
  39 [02:10] <Roguehorse> Don't know.....I've only made it to one gig so far...14.04 launch. I think Grant lives nearby though (or not far)
  40 [02:11] <grantbow> SFSU usually does an SFD event
  41 [02:11] <grantbow> I'll ping sameer
  42 [02:11] <rww> o/
  43 [02:11] <Roguehorse> speaking of Grant
  44 [02:13] <pleia2> grantbow: thanks
  45 [02:14] <pleia2> anything happening in socal?
  46 [02:15] <nhaines> Not that I know of.  I need to check with OCLUG on the status of the next installfest.
  47 [02:16] <Roguehorse> grantbow: You want to work together to put on a SFD?
  48 [02:16] <pleia2> nhaines: sounds good
  49 [02:16] <pleia2> philipballew: anything in SD?
  50 [02:16] <philipballew> pleia2, for sfd?
  51 [02:17] <pleia2> philipballew: or ugj
  52 [02:17] <grantbow> Roguehorse I'll help coordinate if you want to lead up an effort and attend.
  53 [02:18] <Roguehorse> grantbow: Ok..we can talk after the meeting
  54 [02:18] <philipballew> I am planning a ubuntu hour that I will call a ubuntu global jam where I show people how to report and file bugs. As for Software Freedom Day, I am speaking on open source stuff at the one in Tijuana Mexico, just over the border.
  55 [02:18] <grantbow> ok
  56 [02:18] <pleia2> philipballew: cool
  57 [02:19] <philipballew> I'll try to remember to take pictures or both and shoot out a blog or two
  58 [02:19] <pleia2> philipballew: please do!
  59 [02:19] <DonkeyHotei> Roguehorse: if you were at the 14.04 launch, we probably met
  60 [02:20] <pleia2> #topic Any other business
  61 [02:20] <philipballew> Quallcomm still will not put up my ubuntu meetup flyer's at their office.
  62 [02:20] <pleia2> that's all we had for agenda items, anyone else have anything?
  63 [02:20] <eps> Utopic release party planning?
  64 [02:21] <DonkeyHotei> i think it's a bit early
  65 [02:21] <eps> DonkeyHotei: trust me, it isn't
  66 [02:22] <pleia2> not early, we need to pin down a venue pretty early, it's only 2 months away
  67 [02:22] <pleia2> October 23rd is release
  68 [02:22] <DonkeyHotei> oh.
  69 [02:22] <pleia2> I'll be in the wrong part of the world again
  70 [02:23] <Roguehorse> ...don't you have some sort of assigned "second" for when you're traveling?
  71 [02:23] <pleia2> hehe
  72 [02:23] <DonkeyHotei> Roguehorse: how 'bout he.net as a venue?
  73 [02:25] <Roguehorse> I think we probably could...I would have to ask first (obviously)
  74 [02:26] <DonkeyHotei> another possibility might be noisebridge
  75 [02:28] <pleia2> I stopped doing them there because the feedback wasn't great (venue was hot, dirty)
  76 [02:28] <pleia2> but it's been a while since I've been
  77 [02:29] <pleia2> citizenspace.us has offered us space, and we can always ask Mozilla or AdRoll again
  78 [02:30] <pleia2> so I think we have a lot of options in SF, just need folks to coordinate something
  79 [02:30] <Roguehorse> ooh...I'd like to look inside Mozilla, that would be cool
  80 [02:31] <pleia2> they have a pretty cool community space at their office on the Embarcadero
  81 [02:31] <Roguehorse> nice
  82 [02:31] <pleia2> I reached out to them for our 14.04 party, but they took forever to reply so I gave up on them for that event, but have since been promised prompter replies ;)
  83 [02:32] <pleia2> so I'm happy to put folks in touch as needed, even if I can't attend myself
  84 [02:32] <Roguehorse> well, between parenting, school, eblug and working with Grant on SFD - I'm pretty tapped
  85 [02:33] <nhaines> Roguehorse: Definitely better to pace yourself.  :)
  86 [02:33] <Roguehorse> nhaines: I like to be community active but it's not fair to the wife for me to be gone all the time ya know?
  87 [02:35] <nhaines> Roguehorse: or the kids.
  88 [02:35] <nhaines> Although we always made SCALE a family event.  :)
  89 [02:35] <eps> SCALE 13x info available at http://www.socallinuxexpo.org/scale13x -- it's scheduled for *four* days this time.
  90 [02:35] <darthrobot`> Title: [SCALE 13x | scale13x]
  91 [02:36] <pleia2> eps: wow :)
  92 [02:36] <Roguehorse> yeah, he wants to come with Daddy but he gets boired real easy
  93 [02:36] <Roguehorse> still owrking on that
  94 [02:36] <Roguehorse> :-( fat fingers
  95 [02:36] <nhaines> Aw.  :)  Well, nothing a 3DS can't fix once he's participated a bit.
  96 [02:37] <pleia2> it's ok, I bring my 3DS too
  97 [02:37] <pleia2> ;)
  98 [02:37] <Roguehorse> we'll see, it's almost time to start bringing him too
  99 [02:38] <nhaines> pleia2: StreetPass tags!  \o/
 100 [02:38] <pleia2> \o/
 101 [02:38] <Roguehorse> ???
 102 [02:39] <pleia2> 3DS speak
 103 [02:39] <pleia2> ok, anything else?
 104 [02:39] <Roguehorse> Ah
 105 [02:40] <eps> Planning for SCALE?
 106 [02:41] <pleia2> crickets
 107 [02:41] <Roguehorse> Yeah, think it was just those two topics
 108 [02:41] <eps> Put it on a future agenda. ;-)
 109 [02:41] <DonkeyHotei> scale does take planning
 110 [02:43] <pleia2> eps: wfm
 111 [02:43] <pleia2> next meeting we should also chat about leadership elections for the coming year too
 112 [02:43] <pleia2> but I think that's it for tonight :)
 113 [02:44] <pleia2> thanks all
