Party? Party!

Hey Ubuntu people! It's been too long since we've had a real party!

In Vancouver? Consider yourself invited!

Instant Ubuntu Group: Just Add Water

Opening salvo: Posts on a mailing list asking for technical help are indicative of a broken local community.

A thought experiment: What if each one of us who post to mailing lists, forums, and other online places to ask for Ubuntu help were to do one extra thing: State your town/city in the post?

An extension: What if each tech-savvy person encountering a plea for help in their (now recognizable) town/city were to offer assistance over a coffee/tea, in person.

The result: Instant formation of a new Ubuntu group in your town. Ubuntu becomes more fun! Parties!

The pleasant side effect: Less chatter and noise about Ubuntu problems, errors, bugs, and Unity-hate on the interwebs.

It only takes two people and 20 minutes to start an Ubuntu group in your town. I hope you'll give it a try. JUST ADD WATER!

...from Vancouver.
