LoCo News Category
So in an effort to spread Ubuntu on a expansive scale. We have gone social on many fronts. So here is our social profiles.
So spread the news, subscribe, and enjoy. Also don’t forget to give thanks to Emma Marshall for all the hard work on setting up and managing all of this.
Well its that time of the year again. Time to start planning for the upcoming Jaunty Jackalope Release Party.
I am looking to get a head count on the number of people wishing to attend and suggests for the Location and Date. Currently on the table is the Oriental Theater. However to do this I need to have 50+ people confirm that they will attend the event.
Features of the Oriental Theater are:
- 40-foot Projector
- Sandwich Shop
- Room for a lot
- Good Location
I am looking for a few people to also give a presentation at the release party. It doesn’t need to be release oriented, but at least be Ubuntu and/or Open Source related. I am going to put together a presentation on the new features and bug fixes for the new release as well to go along with any other presentations. If you wish to do a presentation please email me at (nerdynick) at (gmail) dot (com).
I am also looking for a designer to mock up a Release Party flyer. If you know of someone and are that someone please email me or the mailing list your design ideas.
If you wish to attend please fill out the form at: http://tinyurl.com/ccp9ea
I have received our Intrepid Ibex CD’s from Canonical and will be doing a few Geek Sessions around the Denver Metro Area to pass them all out to fellow members and anyone else who wishes to attend. So far these are the locations.

Sun Nov 16, 2008 @ 6pm at Panera Bread in Denver (Grant St. & 13th)

We need to get a head count of all those wish to attend as well as if you would like to give a speech/Presentation. If you could fill out the following form this will help us out dearly.
This event has been postponed.
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.

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.
