July 6, 2010 IRC Meeting

Old Business

  • Ubuntu hour: Any one done this yet? Interested?
    • Definition given: Informal gathering in a public place. Ubuntu it up.
    • dasnipa would have them but small city. jtatum was going to have one in Norfolk but moved. Tarvid has occasional gatherings in Galax.
    • Idea: 10.04.1 is scheduled for release on July 29. Tarvid suggested a party. Offered to host it. Weekend. July 31? tarvid said that a couple come up from NC. dasnipa probably won't be able to make it. dotblank suggested getting RMLUG (Richmond-Metro Linux Users Group http://www.rmlug.org) involved.

New Business

  • Quick review of SouthEast LinuxFest

    • Sessions ranging from Non-Technical User level to advanced. Ubucon, DrupalCamp. Summation: http://jeremysands.com/?p=166

    • Next LinuxFest folks were talking about is Ohio http://www.ohiolinux.org/ September 10-12, 2010

    • Idea for release party was surprisingly simple: Have a cake at a public place. Amber Graner had a session on organizing events and I figured a release party had to be a big planned thing but a cake at a public place sounds easy. I'm not sure if I'll still be in Virginia in October or I'd plan it.
    • maco, jtatum, jledbetter were there. 2 other virginians but they use slackware. Ubuntu table got a lot of traffic and gave away boxes of Lucid CDs. Ran out, Kubuntu went first.
    • dotblank is working on a way his phone can boot up computers with an iso file on an sd card. Also thinking about making an apps that generates a preseed file and creates a netinstall image. maco bought paper sleeves for cds so she can carry them in her purse.
    • jledbetter brought up that the next LinuxFest folks were talking about is Ohio http://www.ohiolinux.org/ September 10-12, 2010

    • dasnipa: Anyone make it to schmoocon http://www.shmoocon.org/

Project team members and individuals are encouraged to each introduce Ubuntu to a new person and track that work on the team or personal wiki. For the first three individuals who introduce Ubuntu to 100 new users each, Dinda will send you an Ubuntu t-shirt!

    • dotblank had some great ideas about where to expose people to Ubuntu: libraries and computer shows. maco mentioned that computer people have heard about and formed opinions about Linux. Go for the "normal" people. Maybe offer as a community service installations of ubuntu software in computer labs.
