News for September 2007
Thanks to Jim “Musashi” Hutchinson’s efforts our group has managed to score a great writeup in Full Circle Magazine. The write-up is over his efforts with the T.I.E. conference a couple months ago. It talks about many of the things that they covered at the conference and the teachers reactions to the thoughts of using Open Source and the Edubuntu/Ubuntu Operating System. They also cover the great Thin-Client network that Jim and David setup for the event to show of to the teachers and the network administrators what Edubuntu/Ubuntu could do.
The write up is on Page 11 of the PDF which you can download here.
P.S. Thanks Alex for notifying the group about this great write-up.
There will be an upcoming meeting this Thursday the 27th at the Panera Bread in Longmont.
The agenda is:
- discuss and attempt to finalize plans for the gutsy release party.
- discuss how to best facilitate monthly meeting with a widely distributed group of members.
- discuss the idea of regional coordinators.
- brainstorm some ideas for a bigger, badder hardy party in April.
- others as suggested and allowed for by time.
Thanks to the untiring work of Jim Hutchinson, help from lots of others and a lot of discussion on the CoLoCo mailing list, we’ll soon have classy embroidered polo shirts with our logo and “Colorado Ubuntu Linux Team” on the left breast, and “CoLoCo Rocks” on the sleeve. Today is the target date for final orders and payments – you may still be able to get in on the order. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ColoradoTeam/Tshirts for the details. Thanks, team!
