What did we learn from the last one?
What do we want to do differently?
When is a good date to have it?
Where do we want to have the event?
How do we get the word out better this time?
20:00 < etank> lets get this party started 20:02 < etank> bkingx_: you got this thing 20:03 < Zuph> Clearly not. 20:03 < p0g0_> Gentlemen, start your engines... 20:03 < etank> darn you bkingx_ 20:03 < etank> alright 20:03 < etank> tonight we are all about the next event 20:04 < etank> it has been discussed some about having an install fest in Jan 20:05 < etank> how does that fit with everyones schedule 20:05 < defishguy> What are the tentative dates? 20:05 < Zuph> I don't have anything in January yet. 20:05 < Zuph> defishguy: January. 20:06 < etank> the question is how do we get the word out 20:06 < defishguy> zuph: <sarcasm>Maybe something a little more precise you know like oh I don't know maybe a particular day just as Jan 9, 2008</sarcasm> 20:07 < defishguy> Bring a friend competition? 20:07 < Zuph> defishguy: We haven't considered any days at all. 20:07 < p0g0_> January 1st at 1:00 am? 20:07 < etank> p0g0_: as long as you run it :) 20:07 < defishguy> lol 20:07 < Zuph> defishguy: It will probably be a weekend. 20:07 < etank> one of the Saturdays 20:07 < Zuph> January 5th, 12th, 19th or 26th? 20:07 < Zuph> I would prefer the 12th right now. 20:08 < etank> setting a date at this point isn't really the big thing 20:08 < Zuph> Well 20:08 < Zuph> Yeah, it is. 20:08 < etank> we need to plan how we are going to do it 20:08 < Zuph> Because we need to start getting word out 20:08 < Zuph> Post haste. 20:08 < etank> not to say that a date isn't important 20:08 < etank> cause it is 20:09 < defishguy> The first thing I'm going to get asked is "when is it" 20:09 < p0g0_> so if I run it, do I get to choose where to hold it too? 20:09 < etank> poin tmade defishguy 20:09 < Zuph> How is everyone's January 12th? 20:09 < defishguy> The 12th works for me. 20:09 < p0g0_> Mine seems fine, so far. 20:10 < etank> that should work for me 20:10 < Zuph> Okay 20:10 >>> firstname.lastname@example.org 20:10 < Zuph> Bang the gavel, January 12th. 20:10 < etank> around 3:00PM or so 20:10 < etank> ??? 20:10 < defishguy> 3 it is. 20:10 < etank> hey jkeyes0 20:10 < jkeyes0> hey etank 20:10 < Zuph> I dunno. 20:10 < defishguy> Hi jkeyes0 20:10 < jkeyes0> hey fish 20:10 < Zuph> Are we planning on running fairly late? Because 3-7 seems reasonably, while 3-5 does not. 20:10 < etank> jkeyes0: we have just decided to do an install fest on Jan 12th at ??:?? o'clock 20:11 < defishguy> 3 works for me. 20:11 < jkeyes0> should be fine by me 20:11 < etank> Zuph: i was kinda thinking a 3 hour event 20:11 < etank> should we move it to 2:00 PM 20:11 < Zuph> Capped off by Pizza or something? 20:11 < Zuph> Because 3-6 doesn't seem bad 20:11 < etank> Zuph: food is one way that we will draw people in 20:11 < Zuph> Yeah 20:12 < Zuph> 3-6, with Pizza at 5ish? 20:12 < etank> sounds good 20:12 < bkingx_> Hey guys 20:12 < defishguy> that works 20:12 ~ bkingx_ is now bkingx 20:12 < defishguy> hey bkingx 20:12 < etank> what did we learn from the first event we did like this 20:13 < Zuph> That we need srwalter to set up the ethernet bridge. 20:13 < bkingx> that srwalter does good with presentations 20:13 < jkeyes0> and he should bring a cheesecake. :) 20:13 < Zuph> That srwalter is easily our most valuable member. 20:13 < etank> one thing we learned was that we dont want to do two events back to back 20:13 < bkingx> AMEN! 20:13 < defishguy> Huzzzah jkeyes0. I agree! 20:13 < Zuph> I had fun at the release post part :( 20:14 < etank> Zuph: me too but it felt so rushed 20:14 < Zuph> Yeah. 20:14 < etank> do we want to do presentations this time? 20:14 < Zuph> I think we should do a short walkthrough install. 20:14 < etank> the one that i did was not good for the audience that we had 20:15 < Zuph> And maybe show some people the finer points of fixing their broken xorg.conf files. 20:15 < etank> what about opening it up to different distros? 20:15 < bkingx> NO! 20:15 < p0g0_> Yes? 20:15 < bkingx> Foresite for losers? 20:15 < defishguy> I am in favor of that etank. 20:15 < bkingx> LOL 20:15 < bkingx> JK...different distros is fine. 20:15 < defishguy> That would make it Hindsite wouldn't it bkingx? 20:15 < Ubuntu-Ky> Hmmm. I think bkingx is now ScatterBrain's hero! 20:16 < etank> i don't want to turn someone away that needs help with Fedora, Foresight, Suse or any other 20:16 < p0g0_> Uhhm- who are you trying to attract? Beginners, deep linuz geeks...what? 20:16 < etank> p0g0_: any and all 20:16 < etank> it would be a good way to grow the team no matter what 20:16 < bkingx> Homeless guyy looking for free pizza? 20:16 < p0g0_> so, talking up a presentation on ____ would attract the most peaple? 20:16 < etank> except that bkingx 20:17 < etank> what kind of presentation p0g0_ 20:17 < p0g0_> If they can code for food, I'd be OK... 20:17 < p0g0_> that is the 'fill in the balnk' part. 20:17 < p0g0_> *blank 20:17 < Zuph> etank: We will show them how to install Ubuntu, but if anyone comes with other Distros, we won't turn them away. 20:18 < Zuph> Keeping in mind that a lot of the people coming to INSTALL will be coming because they don't know a damn thing about Linux. 20:18 < etank> i agree with that Zuph 20:18 >>> ScatterBrain!n=Kevin@220.127.116.11 20:18 p0g0_ agrees too 20:18 < etank> we may be able to contact Canonical and get some extra stuff 20:19 < etank> one O'Reilly as well for door prizes 20:19 < ScatterBrain!n=Kevin@18.104.22.168 ["Leaving"] 20:19 < etank> and even system76 to do the flyers 20:19 < etank> thing is that we need to get the word out as soon as possible 20:19 < defishguy> etank: The swag would make a good incentive for folks who drum up participants. I would disqualify myself form the competition for it because of the kids. 20:20 p0g0_ dons the chef's hat...intermittant connection ahead. 20:20 < etank> defishguy: we would raffle them off to people who attend 20:20 < defishguy> That is a good idea 20:20 < etank> free event with food, g33kdom, prizes, etc 20:20 < Ubuntu-Ky> Nothing to free etank! 20:21 >>> email@example.com 20:21 < etank> shut up Ubuntu-Ky 20:21 < etank> bkingx: you need to start blogging 20:21 < bkingx> Like I have anything to say. 20:21 < etank> since you can be / are syndicated to the planet 20:21 < etank> two of us talking it up would be better than one 20:22 < bkingx> True. I can do that. 20:22 < etank> zenwhen should do it as well 20:22 bkingx nods 20:22 < Zuph> Everyone needs to plug everything all the time everywhere. 20:22 < etank> and i hit two planets now so that will help some too maybe 20:22 < etank> hit the forums and wiki with it like crazy 20:22 < etank> mailing lists too 20:23 < etank> too bad the darn web site isn't up right now 20:23 < etank> Where would a good place be to have the event??? 20:24 < etank> that is a huge hurdle to get over 20:24 >>> firstname.lastname@example.org 20:24 < etank> hi samurai8 20:25 < samurai8> hi 20:25 < samurai8> you there talon? 20:25 < talon315> yup 20:25 < talon315> sortof 20:25 < bkingx> I say at the school, if defishguy can get us in. 20:25 < Zuph> etank: Someplace with a projector 20:26 < etank> bkingx: i agree 20:26 < etank> defishguy: what do you thing 20:26 < etank> s/thing/think/ 20:26 < p0g0_> The school! 20:26 < defishguy> I thing that would be fine. 20:26 < etank> :P 20:26 < etank> sounds good 20:26 < defishguy> Sorry that was a bad joke.

The install fest should be a bit higher than that. We've already installed it in class a few times, and there is still quite a bit of interest. Internet access might be touchy. At least unrestricted access. 20:39 < etank> defishguy: how many total came 20:39 < defishguy> Six 20:39 < etank> so srwalter erin and your students 20:39 < defishguy> Yeah 20:39 < etank> k 20:40 < firstname.lastname@example.org  20:40 < etank> last time if i remember right we had about 30 in all 20:42 < etank> alrighty 20:42 < etank> how about we think on it some and put ideas on the wiki 20:42 < defishguy> etank: An apt-cache box would be a good idea.
