The next big thing coming up will always be listed here for discussion, ideas, and planning. Once we get rolling and maybe have more than one event planned, this page will change.

EOCC Business Expo ''June 1''

MikeFeravolo is hosting a table at the East Orlando Chamber of Commerce Business Expo on June 1st (details at bottom). This event is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend, and help spread the good word about Ubuntu.

EOCC Business Expo starts at 1 o'clock in the afternoon and is open to the public. Meaning that anyone can just show up and just hang out, I will be bringing at least two computers attached together with a crossover cable, a 4-port switch and USB Wifi Adapters. I appears that the Holiday Inn Select at the University of Central Florida (UCF) has free Internet, but just in case we experience problems with the connection. We will load the both systems with all kinds of application software.

Along two computers I will have as all the Ubuntu Trade Show Swag along with whatever other else I can think of bringing to lure people to our table. I will also bring a Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC) to show how well Ubuntu plays with windows and to show how to boot ubuntu from a USB key for demonstration purposes.

Feel free to harass Mike on his cell phone (321-278-8642), call his office (321-784-5553) [which also rings at his home], eztips at earthlink dot net, or just show up at the show on June 1. It's okay to just show up with a notebook system with you or anything else that you can easily carry.
