    Ubuntu booth at TIE

    Jim Hutchinson:

    Good news, everyone.

    I just heard from Canonical that they will sponsor a booth at TIE. All discussions involved members of CoLoCo doing the actual manning of the booth and I doubt that has changed. So far, David, Bryan and I have agreed to pretty much cover the booth. However, I think we’d all appreciate it if we can share that among some more members. Please reply to this email if you can donate some time to representing Ubuntu at the conference. Also add your name to the wiki page. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TIEColorado

    The booth will be open from 11-3 on Wed, June 20 and 10-4 on Thurs, June 21. Setup is Wed morning. I’m not sure how much time we will need but I think it would be good to be there by 9:00 (any other thoughts on that?). We also need to clean up right after on Thursday.

    Outside of the booth times I think we are still hoping to have a table somewhere in order to maximize exposure.

    We are still in need of volunteers to help with lesson plans as well (see the wiki page). I should have three lessons finished before the Ubu-boulder-con this Saturday. Stay tuned.

    Thanks,

    TIE Update

    I heard from Canonical today that they will pony up the cash for a booth in the exhibition hall. I think this will be a great opportunity to spread the word about ubuntu. We plan to have a working thin-client set up at the booth (2-3 terminals and the server) to show everyone the basic idea. Canonical is also sending/has sent a conference kit with goodies to give away. If anyone has any other ideas for the booth please share them. Also, sign up below if you will be spending any time at the conference and can help with the booth.

    Ubucon Boulder

    Neal:

    When: Saturday 2007-06-02, probably 9-5
    Where: Google’s Boulder office: 1433 Pearl

    What: An “unconference” like Barcamp: a spontaneous day of
    Ubuntu-related demos, talks, chats, etc

    We’ll have a small conference room with wifi and LCD projector. About
    20 people can squeeze in. The space will be tight, so sign up early.

    The focus is to share cool Ubuntu stuff with each other. Be prepared
    to share how YOU do stuff with Ubuntu. E.g. bring your laptops and
    demo some application, or show how to participate in ubuntuland via
    launchpad and the wiki, propose some projects and specs, set up an
    Edubuntu thin client network, or whatever. But what you propose to
    talk about should be possible with Ubuntu. And that doesn’t limit
    things very much :-) E.g. we’ll probably spend some time helping Jim
    out with https://wiki.edubuntu.org/TIEColorado

    We’ll announce it first for Colorado LoCo team members, but we’ll
    invite anyone interested in Linux to sign up if there’s space.

    For a taste of similar gatherings, see http://barcamp.org/BarCampBoulder . The general unconference process
    is to show up with ideas, list them on a whiteboard at the beginning
    of the day, and let people decide then and there what the agenda
    should be and what they’re interested in. Besides the main “track” in
    the conference room, folks can propose other things to talk about in
    the anteroom or outside.

    Where

    The Google office in Boulder is on the Pearl St Mall, next to
    Starbucks, and has wifi and a small conference room. Our biggest fear
    is that it is too good a location and we’ll have too many people :-)
    But other attempts to quickly find a bigger place haven’t panned out.

    Naturally enough they don’t want us wandering around the development
    cubes…. I figure 20 can squeeze into the conference room, and others
    can stand and watch. And they also have a waiting area right outside
    the conference room, and for spillover we can always go a few steps
    outside into the beautiful ambiance of the mall.

    Our very friendly host is Jim McMaster, a developer at Google. And our
    contact came thru Leslie Hawthorn, of Google’s Open Source Program
    Office in California. She manages the Google Summer of Code
    program. Everybody thank Jim and Leslie :-)

    How to participate

    Sign up via the wiki. If we’re overcrowded (probably around 30 at any
    given time) we’ll give preference to those that signed up first.

    Help organize

    Organizers include, NealMcBurnett, Mitch Mahan, and anyone else who
    steps forward…
