    Ubucon Boulder Postponed

    Sorry. This is probably just a little late, but better late then never.

    We’ve got good news and bad news

    The good news: Leslie Hawthorn, the wonderful head of the Google Open
    Source Program Office (Google Summer of Code, etc) will help us plan
    the next Ubucon Boulder! It is always good to have folks helping who
    really know how to run a great event.

    The bad news: we won’t have time to get our ducks in a row in time for
    the previously announced Sep 27th date.

    So we need a new date, either in October or January, since Nov and Dec
    won’t work.

    So we’ll figure out which Saturdays work for Google – Stay tuned!

    Thanks,
    Nick, Neal, Leslie and Dale

    Picture Day

    Join me for a day of Photography and fun in Boulder, CO!

    For those interested we’ll be taking pictures around town and perhaps the neighboring mountains [with penguins and Ubuntu stuff (oh-my!)] all whilst passing out Ubuntu CD’s and talking to people on the street (if there are any to be found).

    When: November 24th @ 1pm
    Where: “Wolf Camera” Boulder, CO.
    Why: Just another excuse to take pictures and promote Ubuntu.

    p.s. – It may be cold; so bring a jacket! :)

    Woody’s Meet-Up

    Good Morning,

    I would like to throw a little get-together tomorrow night at Woodys
    Wood fired Pizza in broom field tomorrow night after the BBQ. In my
    previous LUG in Tokyo, people would post if they are going to a social
    place and invite the LUG to attend. This would be a great idea to get
    the group together more. If you will attend, please respond to this
    thread. Woodys is a laptop friendly place.

    The directions are located here:

    Phillip Tribble – Rusher
    That Guy INC.

    When: August 11 2007 @ 7:00pm MT
    Where: Woody’s Pizza – HWY 287/Wadsworth & 10th Ave. – Broomfield, CO

    CoLoCo Radio Interview

    Today I had a call-in interview for the “Castellini on Computers” radio show, which is broadcast on the western slope of the mountains.  It was a fun experience for me, but my first chance at ever being on a radio show.  Combine that with the fact that I was ditching work for about 30 minutes to do it and I was a bit nervous and hurried.  All that aside, I felt like it was a great exposure moment for Ubuntu and the CoLoCo team for anyone that was listening.

    If you all are curious as to what I sound like on the radio (which is nothing like what I sound like in normal life) you can hear the clips from the below links.  Sorry, they’re only in mp3 from his site, but they’ll have to do for now:

    http://www.helpmerick.com/node/1529  – Part I
    http://www.helpmerick.com/node/1530  – Part II
    http://www.helpmerick.com/node/1531  -  Follow-up Comments

    Hopefully the next time around (if there is a next time) will go a bit smoother.  : )

    Rick actually has a very nice computer how-to website setup that has been featuring Ubuntu for the past week.  If you’re curious to see his tutorials and hear what he has to say about Ubuntu check it out at http://www.helpmerick.com .  I’ll be heading out his way in a few weeks I believe to give a talk to a computer group he runs in Grand Junction, if anyone wants to come with or meet me there feel free to let me know.  It would be a great chance for me to meet our friends on the western slope in person!
