Ubuntu at SCALE14x

I spent a long weekend in Pasadena from January 21-24th to participate in the 14th Annual Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE14x). As I mentioned previously, a major part of my attendance was focused on the Ubuntu-related activities. Wednesday evening I joined a whole crowd of my Ubuntu friends at a pre-UbuCon meet-and-greet at a wine […]

Color me Ubuntu at UbuCon Summit & SCALE14x

This week I’ll be flying down to Pasadena, California to attend the first UbuCon Summit, which is taking place at the the Fourteenth Annual Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE14x). The UbuCon Summit was the brain child of meetings we had over the summer that expressed concern over the lack of in person collaboration and connection […]

Giving Tuesday (and every day) to support Linux in schools

The Tuesday following Cyber Monday has been designated Giving Tuesday. Whether you observe charitable giving on that day or any other day of the year, the following are organizations I’ve worked with and/or given to that promote one of my own passions: putting Free/Open Source Software into schools and others in need. I’ve been on […]

Ubuntu Community Appreciation Day

Often times, Ubuntu Community Appreciation Day sneaks up on me and I don’t have an opportunity to do a full blog post. This time I was able to spend several days reflecting on who has had an impact on my experience this year, and while the list is longer than I can include here (thanks […]

A werewolf SVG and a xerus

The release of Ubuntu 15.10, code name Wily Werewolf, came out last month. With this release have been requests for the SVG file used in all the release information. Thanks to a ping from +HEXcube on G+ I was reminded to reach out to Tom Macfarlane of the Canonical Design Team and he quickly sent […]

Ending my 6 year tenure on the Ubuntu Community Council

On September 16th, Michael Hall sent out a call for nominations for the Ubuntu Community Council. I will not be seeking re-election this time around. My journey with Ubuntu has been a long one. I can actually pinpoint the day it began, because it was also the day I created my ubuntuforums.org account: March 12th, […]

UbuConLA 2015 in Lima

This week I had the honor of joining a couple hundred free software enthusiasts at UbuCon Latin America. I’d really been looking forward to it, even if I was a bit apprehensive about the language barrier, and the fact that mine was the only English talk on the schedule. But those fears melted away as […]

OSCON 2015

Following the Community Leadership Summit (CLS), which I wrote about wrote about here, I spent a couple of days at OSCON. Monday kicked off by attending Jono Bacon’s Community leadership workshop. I attended one of these a couple years ago, so it was really interesting to see how his advice has evolved with the change […]

Community Leadership Summit 2015

My Saturday kicked off with the Community Leadership Summit (CLS) here in Portland, Oregon. Jono Bacon opened the event by talking about the growth of communities in the past several years as internet-connected communities of all kinds are springing up worldwide. Though this near-OSCON CLS is open source project heavy, he talked about communities that […]

Ubuntu at the upcoming Community Leadership Summit

This weekend I have the opportunity to attend the Community Leadership Summit. While there, I’ll be able to take advantage of an opportunity that’s rare now: meeting up with my fellow Ubuntu Community Council members Laura Czajkowski and Michael Hall, along with David Planella of the community team at Canonical. At the Community Council meeting […]
