NH LoCo meeting for August 16, 2008
Business Center @ 1 Waterford Way, Manchester NH
Facilitator: Nikki Henninger
Note Taker: Arc Riley
Results from Ubuntu Community Council decision
As a result, our membership has risen >10% in 3 days. We discussed ways to outreach to more Ubuntu users/developers. Broderick commented on the number of new mailing list subscriptions.
Software Freedom Day
We're co-hosting Software Freedom Day in Concord, NH with GNHLUG. We're getting a permit for the park in front of the State House and are working out a location for an Ubuntu workshop that night. We may be able to host this at the Concord Food Coop.
We'll have an pre-SFD meeting next month instead of a LoCo monthly meeting next month.
We talked at length about the proposed GNHLUG Ubuntu SIG. Nikki, Matt H, and Arc brought this to the GNHLUG board of directors last month. Broderick suggested alternative names and we led into a discussion as to the need for a SIG.
We resolved that now that the LoCo isn't limited to only FOSS activists, we can host the proposed SIG functions ourselves and "Desktop workshops" at GNHLUG chapters. Kyle talked about hosting a Linux Audio workshop and could show off Ubuntu Studio.
We closed the meeting and walked back to Nikki's for pizza and beer.
