    Jaunty Jackalope Ubuntu Release Party

    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
    • Wi-Fi
    • 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:

    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!

    Nick, Neal, Leslie and Dale

    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.
