Jun 23 19:15:37 <akgraner>
Jun 23 19:15:57 <BugeyeD> bgryderclock: one would normally have to rent space in a mall, right?
Jun 23 19:16:00 <pak33m> BugeyeD: the qimo folks are members of our team
Jun 23 19:16:11 <akgraner> BugeyeD, yeah that would be great too...

Jun 23 19:16:19 <BugeyeD> pak33m: i know, i sat in on their talk and shook their hands afterward.
Jun 23 19:16:20 <bgryderclock> i am not sure

Jun 23 19:18:31 <bgryderclock> perhaps concord mills mall or South park mall in the charlotte area,
Jun 23 19:18:41 <akgraner> does anyone have time to research what is needed for those malls

Jun 23 19:23:12 <pak33m> akgraner: that would be neat if we could do a southeast ubuntu loco display with -fl, -ga, -sc, -nc, etc.
Jun 23 19:23:32 <akgraner> BugeyeD,
Jun 23 19:23:41 <akgraner> pak33m, I think together would be awesome

Jun 23 19:24:06 <pak33m> more bofs hosted by you of course
Jun 23 19:24:11 <akgraner> is there a SE banner with all the loco teams listed by any chance

Jun 23 19:24:48 <akgraner> BugeyeD, k
Jun 23 19:24:55 <pak33m> we would have to generate some noise about it on the -us mailing list
Jun 23 19:25:11 <akgraner> ok.. you want to do that or do you want me too?
Jun 23 19:25:45 <pak33m> you can do it i still need to bring it up with the -fl team
Jun 23 19:25:49 <akgraner> ahh ok

Jun 23 19:27:16 <akgraner> I'll comment on it as soon as I see the email.. we can get some buzz going
Jun 23 19:27:30 <akgraner> jfrorie, hey got any events in the CLT area?
Jun 23 19:27:39 <pak33m> my thought there was to bring up repping our locos in general at alf
Jun 23 19:28:00 <pak33m> good stuff
Jun 23 19:28:02 <akgraner> pak ok I'll note that in the minutes...
Jun 23 19:28:04 <akgraner>

Jun 23 19:29:36 <MootBot> IDEA received: BarcampRDU
Jun 23 19:29:48 <bgryderclock> Will there be a CharLug meeting this week?
Jun 23 19:30:07 <akgraner> sorry folks did anyone else have anything about ALF before I head into BarCAmp
Jun 23 19:30:29 <jfrorie> bgryderclock, I haven;t heard a pep on this list for over a month.
Jun 23 19:30:36 <jfrorie> pep == peep
Jun 23 19:30:40 <akgraner> ok so...BarCamp...
Jun 23 19:30:53 <akgraner> it's August 8th, 2009...
Jun 23 19:31:09 <akgraner> I need to post some links one sec let me grab it... and ALF
Jun 23 19:31:21 <akgraner> lovelace do you want to say anything about barcamp
Jun 23 19:31:55 <akgraner> [link] ALF http://atlantalinuxfest.org/
Jun 23 19:32:11 <BugeyeD> will i need to register prior to showing up at barcamprdu? kinda looks like it might be full otherwise
Jun 23 19:32:14 <akgraner> crap..the ALF doesn't belong in the link but you get the idea
Jun 23 19:32:32 <akgraner> BugeyeD, there is a waiting list due to limited space
Jun 23 19:32:40 <akgraner> you will need to add your name to the list
Jun 23 19:33:05 <akgraner> [link] http://barcamp.org/BarCampRDU
Jun 23 19:33:53 <BugeyeD> thought so. prolly won't do that, as i cannot guarantee i can be there at this time
Jun 23 19:33:57 <akgraner> so think about that event - the TriLug in charge of this event - should be a great crowd - and a ton of info
Jun 23 19:34:15 <BugeyeD> i'd love to go
Jun 23 19:34:31 <akgraner> as we would love to have you there!
Jun 23 19:34:46 <akgraner> anything else about BarCamp anyone

Jun 23 19:35:20 <akgraner> [topic] advocacy
Jun 23 19:35:20 <MootBot> New Topic: advocacy
Jun 23 19:36:07 <akgraner> what can to bring ubuntu to our communities in the State
Jun 23 19:36:23 * bgryderclock (i=184a94d2@gateway/web/freenode/x-7aa3f974f2294215) has joined #ubuntu-us-nc
Jun 23 19:36:34 <akgraner> here are some ideas I thought about in addition to the ones listed for Global Jam
Jun 23 19:36:41 <akgraner> [idea] libraries
Jun 23 19:36:43 <MootBot> IDEA received: libraries
Jun 23 19:36:53 <akgraner> wb bgryderclock !
Jun 23 19:37:10 <BugeyeD> homeschool 2009/2010 is just getting ramped up around here. my wife is getting plugged in (this is our first year). i hope to start talking to folks about qimo and feeling them out for how else they can be helped with foss, but this will take some time.
Jun 23 19:37:17 <akgraner> I talked to a couple libraries and they were excited about having Cd'
Jun 23 19:37:25 <akgraner> cd's and fliers in them
Jun 23 19:37:41 <akgraner> BugeyeD, Great!!!
Jun 23 19:38:06 <bgryderclock> In a talk at SELF, Ryan "Icculus" Gordon talked about a "buy a MacBook get a free Ipod" poster. he asked where are the "want free games and a word processor that doesn't suck.. Try Linux" posters. Perhaps we could create some posters like that and blanket NC campuses with them.
Jun 23 19:38:08 <akgraner> BugeyeD, let us know when you kick that off so we make sure we get it on our lists...
Jun 23 19:38:44 <BugeyeD> np. i'm already talking to some folks, but don't yet know really where to start because i don't know the organization yet.
Jun 23 19:39:16 <akgraner> bgryderclock, sounds like an idea - do the ubuntu marketing folks have anything like that yet? does anyone know?
Jun 23 19:39:24 <BugeyeD> i've contacted sheetz hq (the gas station/food store) but have yet to talk to a real person. just canned messages so far.
Jun 23 19:39:40 <BugeyeD> i've also contacted lowes foods, more of the same.
Jun 23 19:40:02 <akgraner> BugeyeD, you are on the ball... let us know how all that goes...
Jun 23 19:40:05 <akgraner>
Jun 23 19:40:11 <BugeyeD> next on my list is redbox, because folks expect to pick up dvds there - figure it's worth a shot.
Jun 23 19:40:34 <akgraner> [idea] posters...
Jun 23 19:40:36 <MootBot> IDEA received: posters...
Jun 23 19:41:07 <akgraner> all the community colleges are linked as well... so that is a place to start too...
Jun 23 19:41:15 <BugeyeD> [idea] gas stations, red box, grocery stores
Jun 23 19:41:15 <MootBot> IDEA received: gas stations, red box, grocery stores
Jun 23 19:41:16 <akgraner> [idea] community colleges
Jun 23 19:41:18 <MootBot> IDEA received: community colleges
Jun 23 19:41:58 <akgraner> [idea] get involved and see how we can support our LUG and F/LOSS groups in our respective communities
Jun 23 19:41:59 <MootBot> IDEA received: get involved and see how we can support our LUG and F/LOSS groups in our respective communities
Jun 23 19:42:28 <akgraner> see about giving talks or getting someone who knows something about what you are interested to come speak if you don't want to...
Jun 23 19:42:53 <akgraner> [idea] bookstores/coffee shops
Jun 23 19:42:54 <MootBot> IDEA received: bookstores/coffee shops
Jun 23 19:43:10 <akgraner> pak33m, I can see we really need an idea page..:-)
Jun 23 19:43:17 <BugeyeD> no kidding
Jun 23 19:43:22 <pak33m> oh yeah
Jun 23 19:44:20 <akgraner> [idea] non-profits
Jun 23 19:44:21 <MootBot> IDEA received: non-profits
Jun 23 19:44:25 <pak33m> thats why i mentioned a project page for your team at least
Jun 23 19:44:27 <BugeyeD> would the idea page be a wiki that i could edit if/when i get anywhere with any of these contacts?
Jun 23 19:44:48 <akgraner> if you know of a cause that you are personally passionate about.. see what they need...
Jun 23 19:45:03 <akgraner> see if you can help them or if you can't put them in touch with someone who can...
Jun 23 19:45:38 <akgraner> an non-profit you don't care about will fall off your radar but if you care about it.. the you can combine two things and go from there...
Jun 23 19:45:50 <akgraner> make sense...
Jun 23 19:46:23 <pak33m> something along the idea (no pun) of http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/
Jun 23 19:46:31 <pak33m> for an idea page that is
Jun 23 19:46:37 * Citizenjoefriday (n=Joe@adsl-070-145-232-086.sip.int.bellsouth.net) has joined #ubuntu-us-nc
Jun 23 19:47:09 <akgraner> ahh..ok
Jun 23 19:47:25 <akgraner> so anything else.. on this front before I move on to the logo?
Jun 23 19:47:36 <pak33m> akgraner: but maybe somebody could create one for -locoteam
Jun 23 19:47:38 <akgraner> don't want to keep people to long tonight...
Jun 23 19:47:38 <pak33m> s Jun 23 19:47:47 <pak33m> and idea page that is
Jun 23 19:48:03 <akgraner> pak33m, oh that would be great... hmm when in the next loco teams meeting?
Jun 23 19:48:13 <akgraner> maybe we could put that on the agenda..:-)
Jun 23 19:48:15 <pak33m> you guys have a tonne of ideas floating around here
Jun 23 19:48:32 <pak33m> akgraner: oh in dont know
Jun 23 19:48:51 <akgraner> ok..just curious..
Jun 23 19:49:08 <akgraner> aything else before I move on?
Jun 23 19:49:26 <akgraner> [topic] logo
Jun 23 19:49:27 <MootBot> New Topic: logo
Jun 23 19:49:48 <akgraner> so here is the basic idea the majority of folks wanted...
Jun 23 19:50:49 <pak33m> akgraner: dont want to get you all off topic but i wanted to say thanks for letting me hang out with you all again. gotta pay attention to my kids now. ttyl
Jun 23 19:50:50 <akgraner> it needs some simplifying but those minus the stamper, keep the stamp on the state and use Tux...
Jun 23 19:51:00 <akgraner> pak33m, thanks for coming...
Jun 23 19:51:04 <akgraner> anytime
Jun 23 19:51:34 <pak33m> akgraner: let me know if you need help with team stuff
Jun 23 19:51:34 <akgraner> any comments?
Jun 23 19:51:46 <akgraner> pak33m, I will I promise
Jun 23 19:51:48 <akgraner>
Jun 23 19:52:32 <akgraner> any comments on the logo?
Jun 23 19:52:42 <bgryderclock> i like it, perhaps tux could hold the stamper?
Jun 23 19:53:15 <akgraner> bgryderclock, oh that would be good..
Jun 23 19:53:34 <akgraner> we'll see what we can get someone to do for us on that..:-)
Jun 23 19:53:48 <bgryderclock> like "I, the Linux mascot, PWND the state for ubuntu"
Jun 23 19:53:55 <BugeyeD> i think it's too busy for some uses
Jun 23 19:54:24 <akgraner> yes..that's why it will be simplified for things like..banners t-shirts etc...
Jun 23 19:54:31 <akgraner>
Jun 23 19:54:33 <BugeyeD> shrinking it down to a size useful for shortcuts (ie web page logos) would make it useless
Jun 23 19:54:45 <BugeyeD> that'd make a cool t-shirt
Jun 23 19:54:58 <BugeyeD> cafepress anyone?
Jun 23 19:55:07 <akgraner> so those are the symbols everyone wanted though...
Jun 23 19:55:12 <akgraner> cafepress is cool..
Jun 23 19:55:37 <akgraner> anything else about the logo...
Jun 23 19:55:53 <bgryderclock> perhaps Tux standing on the state with a ubuntu flag...
Jun 23 19:56:13 <bgryderclock> like" i claims this state in the name of ubunut."
Jun 23 19:56:21 <bgryderclock> *ubuntu
Jun 23 19:56:30 <jfrorie> I'm wondering if the red stamp is a good idea
Jun 23 19:56:47 <BugeyeD> all your tarheels are belong to us
Jun 23 19:56:55 <jfrorie> it doesn;t reenforce the logo. It creates a new one.
Jun 23 19:57:18 <jfrorie> Maybe he should stamp the same logo that on the stomach
Jun 23 19:57:27 <akgraner> well there is another stamp that is the ubuntu logo
Jun 23 19:57:35 <akgraner> that is the one I was going to ask to be used
Jun 23 19:57:37 <jfrorie> Maybe make the stamp a little crackled to make it look like a stamp.
Jun 23 19:58:17 <jfrorie> From a marketing standpoint, you don't want to create a bunch of logo variations. It confuses people.
Jun 23 19:58:48 <bgryderclock> yeah, i'm just shooting out ideas...
Jun 23 19:58:51 <akgraner> jfrorie, yep...that's why I was going to stick with the normal logo
Jun 23 19:59:16 <akgraner> and those colors..but the general idea was people liked the stamp idea..:-)
Jun 23 20:00:00 <bgryderclock> i like the stamp idea too
Jun 23 20:00:31 <jfrorie> I like the stamp.
Jun 23 20:00:38 <akgraner> so I was thinking to have to logo in place by 1 August, 2009
Jun 23 20:01:23 <akgraner> however if someone else wants to take that link and run with it... my time will be limited until August..
Jun 23 20:01:59 <akgraner> would love to turn that over to someone...
Jun 23 20:02:04 <jfrorie> I suck at drawing. I can only plagerize and change colors
Jun 23 20:02:17 <akgraner>
Jun 23 20:02:54 <akgraner> I'm feeling you're pain...
Jun 23 20:03:16 <akgraner> ok so can we move on to the next topic?

Jun 23 20:04:03 <akgraner> [topic] Karmic Release parties...
Jun 23 20:04:04 <MootBot> New Topic: Karmic Release parties...
Jun 23 20:04:36 <akgraner> ok I know Karmic is in October..
Jun 23 20:05:02 <akgraner> but can we start planning early so we can have 3 or 4 parties for this release...
Jun 23 20:05:26 <akgraner> that way we can get the SWAG and stuff out to everyone and not request stuff last minute...
Jun 23 20:05:46 <akgraner> any ideas for this one?
Jun 23 20:06:18 <BugeyeD> lemme see if i'll even be in-country that month ...
Jun 23 20:06:30 <akgraner> BugeyeD, ok...:-)
Jun 23 20:06:47 <akgraner> well I know the Saucer in Raleigh said we could do something there...
Jun 23 20:06:58 <BugeyeD> how many showed at the saucer last time?
Jun 23 20:07:11 <jfrorie> From my standpoint, we need some lessor events in charlotte to get people together. I will lead, but I haven;t had any takers.
Jun 23 20:07:14 <akgraner> 15 to 20 I think...
Jun 23 20:07:25 <BugeyeD> i've heard good things about the saucer in charlotte ...
Jun 23 20:07:39 <BugeyeD> i'd love to to to either of them. traffic turns me off.
Jun 23 20:07:41 <jfrorie> I've never been, but I know where it is at.
Jun 23 20:07:55 <akgraner> jfrorie, I can help you in Charlotte too I will only be about an hour + from there... Jun 23 20:08:06 <jfrorie> Who is online form charlotte tonite?
Jun 23 20:08:07 <BugeyeD> i'll try to ping _marx_ to see if he wants to help me head one up somewhere near winston

Jun 23 20:08:24 <bgryderclock> i'm in the charlotte southpark area
Jun 23 20:09:33 <akgraner> jfrorie, what about a meet and greet to start?
Jun 23 20:09:42 <jfrorie> that's what I'm thinking.
Jun 23 20:10:35 <akgraner> oh cool... maybe it can shawdow a LUG meet there or something
Jun 23 20:10:43 <akgraner> meeting I mean...
Jun 23 20:11:11 <jfrorie> I'm wondering if the people on the Charlug list might be interested.
Jun 23 20:11:22 <BugeyeD> despite traffic, i'll be there if i can. unless it's race day, then the traffic is impossible.
Jun 23 20:11:34 <jfrorie> There is NO traffic on it. The UNCClug admin doesn;t even respond.
Jun 23 20:12:14 <bgryderclock> i tried to get on it.
Jun 23 20:12:38 <akgraner> jfrorie, so can you do the leg work on a meet and greet in your area...and send out the info to the mailing list here...
Jun 23 20:13:04 <BugeyeD> (sorry, was talking about me navigating automobile traffic to show up at the meet-n-greet, not the list)
Jun 23 20:13:48 <jfrorie> bgryderclock, which list did you try to get on?
Jun 23 20:13:56 <jfrorie> amber, I can do that.
Jun 23 20:14:12 <akgraner> Once we get settled in I'll see about a meet-n-greet in the Lake Lure/Asheville/Hendersonville Area...

Jun 23 20:23:11 <BugeyeD> winston has a lug
Jun 23 20:23:24 <BugeyeD> but it's self-appointed leader is a real piece of work
Jun 23 20:23:38 <BugeyeD> things are digressing with that group, mostly because of him
Jun 23 20:23:46 <BugeyeD> suggestions?
Jun 23 20:23:57 <akgraner> BugeyeD, do you know the leader?
Jun 23 20:24:14 <akgraner> I mean other than on line..
Jun 23 20:24:27 <BugeyeD> i've met him in person, yes. friend? definitely not.
Jun 23 20:24:39 <akgraner> where you could say have coffee with him and see what people can do at assist?
Jun 23 20:24:40 <sinBot> mmmm.... coffee
Jun 23 20:25:08 <akgraner> maybe see if this person has just taken on too much?
Jun 23 20:25:15 <BugeyeD> _marx_ has already tried that, didn't work out too well.

Jun 23 20:27:14 <bgryderclock> BugeyeD, in band situations like that we would "fake-break-up the band" and then reform the band with out the trouble maker.
