How can you help?
The growth of Ubuntu and Open source software in general is an great story that many journalists and readers are simply not aware of. As well as Beta testing, translating Ubuntu in Launchpad and supporting other Ubuntu users you can contribute to the Ubuntu project by contacting the press in your country about your experience with Ubuntu and engaging them in covering launch of Ubuntu 7.04.
a) Identify two or three mainstream journalists in your country, state, town who have written about technology before and contact them by phone and or email about the launch.
b) Share with them the press pack and either do the briefing yourself or invite them to join one of the press briefings. For them to get access to the calls organised by Canonical, a journalist should request to join the calls by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with their details and who they write for. Calls will be in English.
