Stephen Michael Kellat: Changes in Ubuntu Ohio

Published Apr 8 2013 via RSS

It appears that as of 7 April 2013 I am the Point of Contact for Ubuntu Ohio and effectively Leader. In an e-mail to the community sent Sunday I wrote:

Good afternoon.

As of today the High Council of Ubuntu Ohio is taking a breather by ceasing to operate for the time being. The e-mail address for the High Council also no longer functions. It is time to give thanks to Cheri Francis, Michael Gilbert, Jon Buckley, Jacob Peddicord, and Paul Tagliamonte for their periods of service on that body over the past three years.

At this time I am the designated Point of Contact for our Local Community Team on Launchpad. The length of term for this is open-ended at this time. Ubuntu Ohio encompasses users of all flavors of the common core whether you favor Unity, KDE, Xfce, GNOME 3, or LXDE. I must reiterate that we have a big tent here and are not solely focused on the desktop environment named Unity but rather the unity that comes from the common core in software we all utilize.

Looking ahead, our near-term goal is to prepare for participation in Ohio Linux Fest 2013. In the long term we are going to need to strengthen the core of our community by mentoring members of our community so as to increase the number of Ubuntu Members that we have located here in the Buckeye State. Slowly but surely we will be looking forward to new horizons that will require new and interesting approaches.

Many adventures lay ahead. Let us move forward boldly as we near the end of the Raring Ringtail cycle and prepare for the Virtual Ubuntu Developer Summit in May.

The podcast known as The Burning Circle continues at this time. I've made updates to the relevant Launchpad pages to put the High Council into hibernation as I'm the sole member of it remaining. In due time it will return but we have some work ahead of us in the Buckeye State first.

While Ohio Linux Fest 2013 is five months away, we have some disadvantages. First off is that we do not have as much presence in the state capital as we once did. Our members are widely spread across Ohio and it will take some effort to get people to converge on Columbus. Second, we almost did not have a presence there in 2012. Extra effort will be needed to coordinate to ensure that we might be able to sponsor an UbuCon this year perhaps or at least get some speakers lined up. Third, their website was unreachable this weekend so I will need to invest some time to locate correct contacts. This all results in plenty of action items to cover the next five months.

New adventures await as 2013 continues ever onward...
