Ubuntu = Hope! Let’s get our voice to space :)

I came across this today: http://involveyourself.com/

For me you people mean hope:
* Yes, we “only” make an OS.
* Yes, we are “only” a great DoOcracy as a community
* Yes, we do it because we mean it

    So, let’s join that appeal and get a new disc to space. This time let’s send the real deal, not just a harmonic face of humanity:
    * Naked bodies (instead of silhouettes as the discs in the Voyagers)
    * Misery
    * War
    * Hunger
    * Slavery
    * Any-other-non-politcally-correct-thing-in-the-70’s
    * Add-here-what-bothers-about-our-sick-world

      But let’s also send a message of cooperation, collaboration, inclusion and hope: Let’s make something representing us, the Ubuntu and Free Software community, as a picture of a world that want real change in our lifetime!

      Let’s send our face. Maybe a collage of everyone?

      December 10th starts the rally to get our voice into space. Let us make Ubuntu be part of that!

      Mark, are you in? You would like to get your voice or face back in space, wouldn’t you?

      Anyone else?🙂

      3. It seems a bit cynical to present “the face of Ubuntu” as a message of hope, when Ubuntu itself appears to be a vehicle for a closed-source proprietary online subscription service. Which it will be tied into by default when Karmic’s released.

        I wish you good luck with that though. >.>b And that DoOcracy thing is a pretty neat concept.

        • When I think of Ubuntu in this post I am really thinking more of the people behind it, not their interest behind their participation, but rather highlighting their participation itself. I am thinking of the individuals making up the community. That we make an OS and what software that OS carries is really irrelevant in that sense.

          If we get the Ubuntu collage to space it is really more about showing our human side. The I am who I am because we all are spirit. And I believe that is worth sharing in a pointless disc sent to space. It’s not about the extraterrestrial life contact, it’s more about reminding ourselves that the world we live in is way more complex and less harmonic that many of us would like to assume.

          I really do not want to enter into the Ubuntu One discussion as I really feel i have made my standing point clear already in a previous post.
