    Ubucon on its way

    So this is a little late of an announcement for those that are on the mailing list but its official. We will be hosting a Ubucon this September at the New Google Office in Boulder. This event will be in the lines with our last Ubucon. Meaning that it will be an Unconference with a central topic on Ubuntu.

    Now granted that the main topic will be Ubuntu. I would like to extend this conference to all things Open Source and the like. Meaning all you Open Source Evangelists, Linux Enthusiasts, Open Source Developers, and all others that wish to attend. Hopefully we can make this an annual thing.

    2590 Pearl St,
    Boulder, CO 80302

    Saturday September 27, 2008
    9:00am MT (Meet Up Time)
    10:00am MT (Start Time)
    6:00pm MT (Possible Later if everyone is still interested)

    Special Thanks goes out to:
    Leslie Hawthorn for helping get everything setup on the Google side of things
    Dale Hawkins for being our host at Google and all things that go with being the Host
    Neal & Joey for the 1 on 1 with Leslie at Oscon

    Possible Ubucon

    So after last years Boulder Ubucon was a success thanks to Neal. I have taken it upon myself to work at getting us another possible one this year. We are shooting for a September date sometime on the weekend if we can. Once I can confirm a date I will let you all know. Just wanted to give all the world a heads up that we are working towards this possibly happening again. So that you may have a little more time in advance to join us.

    Keep watching for details.

    Jim’s interview with Binary Freedom

    Our fearless Jim Hutchinson (CoLoCo Educational Director) recently did an interview with Binary Freedom. In this interview Jim talks about his recent Post that he did on his blog in response to an article in Discover Magazine by Jaron Lanier. A lot of you may have read this already or seen it on Digg.

    Who is Binary Freedom and what they are about by ringokamens:

    Binary Freedom is an association of decentralized collectives that
    fights for digital rights and the other social movements that it is
    related to such as privacy, free speech, and social justice. We
    emphasize the use of direct action because of its effectiveness are
    are mostly engaged in legislative advocacy and education about free
    software/digital rights. We do all of this with a focus on free
    software and the ideals presented in the hacker ethic and dot
    communist manifesto. Campaigns lead by Binary Freedom activists have
    been featured on US News, Slashdot, Digg, Indymedia, CNN, and others.
