Update – SpreadUbuntu, Nordic cooperation, New job
First things first:
- SpreadUbuntu is done! Really. Let’s just get the http://www.spreadubuntu.com domain pointing at the production site @ Neomenlo and get done with it. Motivation needs drivers and our motivation is to get official status before the Karmic release.
- Evan, our SpreadUbuntu hero, is now an Ubuntu member! Yeah!
- The Nordic teams have for a while been talking about doing some cooperation work so we can together align our goals on raising awareness of Ubuntu in an even greater manner. So I have:
- Asked the Norwegian team to explore the idea of going to a conference in order to have an Ubuntu meeting with other enthusiasts assisting while I invited people to participate on the celebration (and the planning) of the 9.10 release and hopefully a Jam too! (Norwegian only)
- Urged our Nordic colleagues to get things rolling so we can coordinate the release parties regionally with things like similar marketing materials and probably even have (or join) a campaign running, i.e. @ SpreadUbuntu. It seems to be interest to get some action out of our cooperation wishes 🙂
More in the personal side I’ve been busy lately as the wind has moved me from one place to another lately:
- Moved on June. Now I am living even closer to the center of Oslo which opens up for more and greater access to the city life (culture, night&day life and all kinds of activities)
- I left FreeCode after an awesome year there and started as a Sales Specialist @ Redpill-Linpro, which is by far the biggest FLOSS company in the Nordic region. It’s even an Ubuntu (Training) Partner which really is just great!
- Retaken lots of *lost* interests: Climbing, studying French, reading lots and lots, writing even more, dancing & partying 😉
Well that’s it for now. Thanks for your precious time!
