At UDS-R I hosted a session to discuss how we might begin to change the tone (and content) of the discussion about Ubuntu, starting with "the media" (mainly the popular tech sites) that continue to get the story wrong. This is important if Ubuntu is to "break the sound barrier." Turbulence in the next year or two is going to get stronger and we need to be prepared for it.
(If this is the first time you've heard of this, I recommend that you read my original article here: http://randall.executiv.es/uds-r-4 )
The session was well-attended and the discussion was lively. UDS has a way of sparking fresh ideas and invigorating Ubuntu supporters.
And from that discussion, consensus was reached that an Ubuntu Evangelism team was needed. I have taken on the responsibility of building this team during the Raring Ringtail cycle, and have begun to do so. Expect to see building blocks and further information to appear shortly.
In the meantime, I encourage everyone reading this article to share their thoughts in the comments.
Are you an Ubuntu Evangelist?
