This is the Wiki page for the "NU Ubuntu Team" (Northeastern United States of America Ubuntu Local Community Team)
The Northeastern United States is a region of the United States defined by the U.S. Census Bureau. The Northeast is bordered to the north by Canada, to the west by the Midwest, to the south by the South, and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean.
As defined by the Census Bureau, the Northeast region of the United States covers nine states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Some unofficial classifications of the region add Maryland, Delaware, District of Columbia, Virginia, and West Virginia. We will include all of the 13 states listed above and the District of Columbia in our target area.
It is important that our target area is aligned with the US Census Bureau definition of the Northeastern United States & include Maryland, Delaware, & the District of Columbia so we can easily do demographic research of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Edubuntu/Xubuntu users and give us a more viable cohesive voice and community spirit.
Here is a short list of goals which we, as a regional Ubuntu team, will strive to achieve:
Educate the public about Ubuntu
Supply Ubuntu (CDs & CD images) to the general public
Support Ubuntu Locally, conduct community classes and symposiums
Conduct outreach programs via local schools, colleges community centers and libraries.
Spread Ubuntu Linux through out the Northeastern United States.
Provide assistance with migrating, installing, configuring and using Ubuntu
Promote the Ubuntu Certification
Work with other groups to improve peoples computing experience by increasing awareness of GNU + Linux, open source, copyleft software.
start a " NU Ubuntu Team " portal as a resource guide and link to the greater Ubuntu community.
Start a "NU Ubuntu Foundation" within the USA to collect donations of old Computers, and install Edubuntu/Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu for Teachers and Students within the Nu Ubuntu Team region. We will specialize in recycling old MS & apple computers for Teachers, students, elderly and those in need.
We expect that more goals are to come as time passes.
And, obviously, we all do this in line with the Ubuntu Code of Conduct
