<barrydrake> Hi Matt and everyone <mattgriffin> barrydrake: still there? <mattgriffin> :) <barrydrake> yep <mattgriffin> cool. <mattgriffin> the agenda is at http://openetherpad.org/NvKm7neE1A <mattgriffin> was Uni going to make it? <mattgriffin> barrydrake: i sent cassidy an email but never got a reply <barrydrake> Ah! shame <mattgriffin> we can keep on moving forward for now. we had overlap between me and him on the Creative team so we're okay-ish <mattgriffin> UndiFineD: you there? <barrydrake> Might need to ping him <UndiFineD> sorry, I am speechcontrol meeting <UndiFineD> and after that wintermute meeting <mattgriffin> ah. np <mattgriffin> UndiFineD: do you want to reschedule or should we go ahead? <UndiFineD> go ahead <mattgriffin> cool <UndiFineD> and you can ping me for a q <mattgriffin> UndiFineD: ok * UndiFineD gives channel operator status to mattgriffin barrydrake <mattgriffin> barrydrake: ready to start? <barrydrake> yes <mattgriffin> barrydrake: cool. let's start with campaign 1 and review your creative brief <barrydrake> I saw your comments about the creative brief. I've added a sentence to the 'target', but it may need more thought <mattgriffin> barrydrake: did you see my comments in the email earlier today? <mattgriffin> cool <mattgriffin> ok * mattgriffin checks out https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuAdverts/Campaigns/education/creative_brief_a <mattgriffin> so the initial target is normal consumer computer users. we're not focusing on any business-class users, right? <mattgriffin> any specific geographies or target language? <barrydrake> I think that is the aim of the first campaign. Geographies wherever we can motivate the target. <mattgriffin> let's lock down the parameters for now to an English speaking audience, ok? <barrydrake> Corporat users are a different targe, and need to be fostered in a very different way. English for now, yes <mattgriffin> cool <mattgriffin> do you want me to update the brief or can you? <barrydrake> I think you could usefully have some input into it. I've fleshed it out as much as I could for now <mattgriffin> cool. <mattgriffin> i just added an agenda item for the next meeting at the bottom of our agenda <mattgriffin> i'd like to present this brief to the creative teams at the next meeting. is that when you are going to be in Vegas? <barrydrake> Sorry, I doubt I'll be there. Depends on what internet access I get while in the USA <mattgriffin> barrydrake: when do you return from your trip? <barrydrake> I travel out on March 1st, and return March 10th. I'm sure I should be able to e-mail, but IRC - don't know <mattgriffin> barrydrake: ok. do you want to have another team meeting on 26 Feb and do it then? <mattgriffin> or we can wait until 12 march <mattgriffin> or i can present it on 5 march ;) <mattgriffin> your call. i'm open to any of those <barrydrake> I'll need to check out 26th Feb. I'm happy for you to present it if I can't get <barrydrake> Give me five minutes ..... <mattgriffin> np. <barrydrake> Can't make 25th March; sorry <mattgriffin> ? <barrydrake> Sorry - February <mattgriffin> 26 Feb? <barrydrake> Can't do <mattgriffin> np. so we can keep it moving forward, i'd like to present it on 5 march. <barrydrake> Go for 5th March, and I can be there for another meeting if you need me on 12th <mattgriffin> if you get a connection in Vegas, we can do it together. i'm sure you're going to busy in crazy Vegas so don't worry if you can't make it :) <barrydrake> OK <mattgriffin> cool <mattgriffin> cool. just adding some milestones <barrydrake> Seen them. Sounds good to me <mattgriffin> ok. so i think we can move on to checking with UndiFineD on the 5 March deliver date for the Campaign #2 creative brief <mattgriffin> UndiFineD: ^ is that date still okay? <barrydrake> Sounds OK to me <UndiFineD> seems fine to me <mattgriffin> cool :) <mattgriffin> the next item is ideas for future campaigns <UndiFineD> saturday evening is always busy with meetings for me <UndiFineD> but I have 2 projects moving upstream <mattgriffin> UndiFineD: np. perhaps we should consider changing this meeting time as well <UndiFineD> could do <mattgriffin> do you guys want to do one of those vote-y things? <mattgriffin> the website i mean <barrydrake> OK - but remember I don't do 'late' <mattgriffin> yeah. and i'd like to keep these meetings to 1 hour max ;) <barrydrake> Good <mattgriffin> added the vote thing to the 'Other' category on the agenda. <mattgriffin> the next item is ideas for future campaigns. barrydrake: i added your other two education-related items to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuAdverts/Campaigns#Ideas <barrydrake> I noticed. Thanks <mattgriffin> if anyone else has any other ideas, please add them to the list <mattgriffin> np <mattgriffin> ok. next item... Research. barrydrake: i think you added this item. anything specific to point out? <barrydrake> Alan Cocks has managed to get invited to teach/demonstrate to students at a couple of colleges <mattgriffin> cool <barrydrake> I have a bit of feedback from him. Sounds really progressive <barrydrake> I haven't a lot to say about exhibitions and computer fairs. Next stage is to start e-mailing organisers <mattgriffin> barrydrake: do those things get a lot of attendance? * mattgriffin has never been to one except for tradeshows for work <barrydrake> Yes - and the right audience - but Alan Cocks says he has difficulty getting folk to stop and talk. I would need eye-catching posters and a good banner ... <mattgriffin> hmm. ok <barrydrake> Problem is, folk go there to buy, and he isn't 'selling' for money <mattgriffin> do the organizers usually charge for a table or space? <barrydrake> Yes, but Alan persuaded them that as he is non-profit, could they let him stand for nothing - and they found him a spare corner <mattgriffin> is this type of stuff covered in the 'Talks-Ubuntu-for-students-report' document on the wiki at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuAdverts/Research ? <barrydrake> Yes, but there is more to add now. <mattgriffin> maybe this could be the third campaign... some support materials for specific use at face-to-face events <mattgriffin> they would need to be cheap to produce but help generate some kind of excitement or interest by passers by <barrydrake> And exhibitions, computer fairs etc <mattgriffin> ok. adding to the Campaign ideas list <barrydrake> They need to be designed by a 'visual' person. I can throw out lots of ideas, but someone else needs to do the arty stuff <mattgriffin> ok. added to the list <barrydrake> So - moving on? <mattgriffin> yes <mattgriffin> Planning <barrydrake> Nothing more to report at the moment <mattgriffin> ok <mattgriffin> Creative <mattgriffin> i added some milestones for the first campaign and a todo for mattgriffin <barrydrake> Well, seems mainly to involve you .... <mattgriffin> hehe... /me needs to reach cassidy ;) <barrydrake> Yes - he needs to appear at some point and say what his involvement is going to be <mattgriffin> yeah. that's basically what i asked him about... we'll see <barrydrake> Hmmm <mattgriffin> if he can't stay involved, i can see if any of the other designer and writer volunteers want to step up <barrydrake> Good thinking .... <mattgriffin> so 'Other'? <mattgriffin> no status on the social network icons... need to get in touch with cassidy :( <mattgriffin> but not too important at the moment though <barrydrake> Nothing from me. I just think that cassidyjames has the right idea with the simple guide <mattgriffin> yeah. i took a look at that. good list of apps and simple ways to get started. a few screenshots (or even just app icons that match the launcher list) would be nice to include <mattgriffin> so what is that voting website? <barrydrake> I can work on it as soon as I get a version of Natty that works for me! <barrydrake> doodle something .... I'll try to find it <mattgriffin> haha... it took me 3 days to get it to boot from a USB key... finally needed to download the alpha2 DVD <mattgriffin> iso <mattgriffin> found it <barrydrake> I can get it to boot - it just fails to work Unity properly. Unity/Compiz has a problem with Nouveau <mattgriffin> ah <mattgriffin> ok. setup - http://doodle.com/3vugx9gcefiahkqa <mattgriffin> barrydrake: even though it says 5 March, please vote as if this were the regular meeting time slot :) <barrydrake> OK. I've done that <mattgriffin> cool. UndiFineD: when you're ready, please vote on times <mattgriffin> ok. i think we're done :) <barrydrake> Sounds goo to me. I'll e-mail the list with any developments before the next meeting <mattgriffin> cool. thanks. have a great rest of your weekend :) <barrydrake> And you. Bye <mattgriffin> UndiFineD: bye <mattgriffin> barrydrake: bye <barrydrake> UndiFineD: bye <UndiFineD> bye guys <mattgriffin> UndiFineD: 1 more thing. can you add the notes from irc to the wiki page? please :) <UndiFineD> mattgriffin: always :) <mattgriffin> UndiFineD: thanks!
