It takes two

At the last UDS we talked quite a bit about LoCo teams in during the Leadership Mini Summit. One interesting point was that many seemed to have the impression that events have to be big, everything has to follow an established protocol or a rigid process. That’s not the case.

I’m sure my friend Jorge Castro would agree with me if I told you to JFDI. The result of not doing things is that things will not get done. Setting up an event is sometimes just a matter of sending a mail to the team and asking everyone to come to a certain place at a certain date and time. Another point discussed was the number of people. Seriously, if it’s just two of you who hang out and make Ubuntu better or just have a good time together, that’s so much better than not meeting at all. :)

The reason I write all of this is that we’re getting closer to Ubuntu Global Jam again and some of you might be considering setting up an event and adding it to the LoCo Team Portal and you might still be a bit unsure. There’s really no need to.

It’s very very likely you don’t need a huge venue with lots of bells and whistles, maybe just meeting in a coffee shop will be good enough? A room in your local university? Or invite people to your place? Just somewhere with internet might be good enough. You might get to know some new local team members and it’s all about having a good time.

We have instructions up how to set up a jam, a video, and you can always ask for advice. Join the Ubuntu Global Jam today!

This week we got a fun update from our traveling team member Ivanka! While passing through Dawson City in northern Canada Ivanka and Nick met Chalsie Warren and she recognised the Ubuntu stickers on their bike! This got me wondering whether we can track down the most extreme users starting with the most northerly Ubuntu user.

Do you know that person?

Are you that person?

Get in touch and let’s fill up this map! :D
