Help team members interested in triaging bugs and setting their computer up for the 5-a-day program. As more team members start triaging congratulate members on their 5-a-day stats.
Discuss the progress of the Linux/Ubuntu presentation materials. The materials include but are not limited to the script for the talk, the presentation slides, and a handout/brochure to give out at talks.
Set up "Ubuntu Pick Up Stations" at libraries, retailers, ect.. where people can get a free CD along with some additional information to show people how Ubuntu can do everything they were doing on Windows.
Community Outreach Team. Start relationships with local non profits, public schools, and businesses. Encourage them to transition to Ubuntu and provide support as they do. Look at whatPennsylvania LoCo Outreach has done.
A fund-raiser to buy computer(s) for underprivileged Oklahoma kids. Start an Email fund-raiser asking for $5 to $10. Use the money to buy a OLPC XO computer or possibly a decent used computer. Another possibility is to encourage people to donate their used computers for us to redistribute with Ubuntu. We could publicize the obvious benefit of open source/free software to underprivileged kids and the opportunity it affords them that they might not normally get. Through press releases and local media coverage use the publicity and credibility to solicit more substantial donations and incrementally grow the project.
