Did you notice what I sneaked in there? Yes, we're going to join all of Canada in one big Virtual Release Party with a Google+ Hangout! It's scheduled to go from 7:30pm Newfoundland Time to 10:00pm Pacific Time, which should include primetime partying hours across Canada.

If you're having a Release Party (even a party of one) then get your Webcam into the action by contacting +JeffSmith at https://plus.google.com/u/0/101763540123089959893/

If you're the shy type and just want to watch there'll be a simulcast on YouTube at Ubuntu 14.04 Release Party!

The Ubuntu-ca LoCo Event page for the Virtual Release Party is at http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-ca/2782/detail/ Registration is optional, but let's show the LoCo Council that Canada knows how to party!

(And if you're not from Canada you're still very welcome to join! Mooseburgers and Maple Syrup on us!)

We'll miss you! Maybe next month.  Or maybe in Guelph - you should see if @azend is planning a Release Party or Ubuntu Hour later in the month.

Here's the first 2 1/2 minutes of the Ubuntu Video Chat held Thursday, 23 January 2014.

See that "Out of Disk Space" error message about 2 minutes in? That's why there's only 2 1/2 minutes of video...  We're gonna need a bigger disk!

Paul Nijjar and Madison Kelly will still be at St. John's Kitchen for informal discussions about high availability computing. There are rumours of a jug of Tim Horton's coffee, too.

Hello everybodeee! Tommorow  is the big day for the Ubuntu Canada
Video Chat. Based on the feedback, we'll be using Google Hangouts for
our chatting software.  You'll need a Google Plus account, and you'll
need to install the Google Talk plugin for Chrome (or Chromium).

I haven't tried Google Hangouts with other browsers -- if someone has
experience with that, can you post encouraging words on the Ubuntu-ca
mailing list?

If you prefer to stick to the traditional text-only IRC then it'll
still be there as a back channel. I'll do my best to transcribe any
conversation so it gets logged with the other meeting minutes.

If you have a moment, please register on the LoCo portal. It's
optional, but it'll make our stats look good for re-approval.

See you all on Thursday!


Date: Thursday, 23 January 2014
Time: 8:30pm NST, 8:00pm AST, 7:00pm EST, 6:00pm CST, 5:00pm MST,
4:00pm PST
Video: Google Hangout (URL will be announced on IRC)
IRC: irc://irc.freenode.net/#ubuntu-ca
IRC Webchat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ubuntu-ca
LoCo Portal: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-ca/2652/detail/
Agenda: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CanadianTeam/Meetings/2014/2014-01-23

We're having a Software Freedom Day in Kitchener on Saturday, 28 September 2013 from 10:00am to 5:00pm at the Kwartzlab Makerspace at 33 Kent Avenue.

We'll give away free software (software that doesn't cost anything, and also respects your freedom to copy, modify and re-distribute it). Bring your computer, and we'll help you install free software on it. We'll also have a showcase of free culture (music, movies and books that don't cost anything, and also respect your freedom to copy them).

I'm doing a presentation on Building Your Own Cloud, and we'll also have presentations on Blender 3D software, Knoppix Linux, and building a media centre.

Hope to see you there!

--Bob.
