Let's take a look at the numbers:
The Ubuntu Global Jam (Precise Pangolin edition) begins in less than one week: Friday March 2nd 2012.
There are 28 Ubuntu LoCo teams planning to participate, in 21 countries... Getting there. But, we're capable of much much more.
North America... I'm going to pick on you ;)
We have no takers from Canonical's office in Lexington, MA? That bug should be easy to fix, right? Canonical guys and gals, you have the people and the resources to head on out into your town and attract a few people to Ubuntu. Heck, hand out jars of jam on Saturday. Ask 100 random people on the street "What is Ubuntu?". Record their answers.
Back home. I live in a tiny (population) northern country (Canada) accounting for 1/3 of the Global Jams in North America while a huge country to the south, which I won't name by name, sleeps. (Think stars, stripes.) That's a bug that's pretty easy to fix too, right? Land of the free :)
Okay. Do you live (or work) in a town or city? Great! Please register an event on the awesome Ubuntu Loco team portal. Do it right now. Then, on your lunch break, print a flyer. Then, after work, take a walk to your local coffee shop and hang that flyer saying Ubuntu will be there on Saturday. One flyer. You can do it. Be strong.
I'll bet you a chicken pot pie that at least one other person will see that flyer and will be curious enough to show up. That one small act you did today will have introduced some fun into someone's otherwise non-Ubuntu weekend. And, you might just have started an Ubuntu group in your town.
Change begins locally, with you.
For those keeping score, here's the final Jam-o-Meter from the last Global Jam we had (Oneiric Ocelot cycle):
