Canadian Marketing Campaign
Ubuntu Canada is organizing a nation-wide marketing campaign! The campaign date for Toronto is September 16th - Software Freedom Day! The Toronto chapter is doing its part by hitting a busy corner of the city and handing out CDs and brochures in an attempt to promote Ubuntu. If you're interested in helping out, contact DaveSullivan or visit us on IRC or the mailing list.
We will be discussing developing and producing Ubuntu promotional and/or documentational videos which will be eventually submitted to [http://www.ubuntuvideo.com/ Ubuntu Video].
Getting involved is simple. If you are enthusiastic and passionate about sharing the joy of Ubuntu, then please, we invite you to join us on IRC or the Ubuntu Canada mailing list and share your ideas with us. We are also going to be holding regular meetings, so be sure to return to this page for meeting dates and times.
