    Getting the NE LoCo moving

    Support makes people feel secure. A well supported person is likely to do more adventurous things than a person alone. In addition to doing what we can to make Ubuntu the best it can be, we can go about fixing bug number one by providing the best darn ubuntu support anywhere, for the people of Nebraska. My approach:

    One trivial to remember URL
    ..that takes you straight to a simple, easy to use site
    where you WILL get good support,
    and probably really fast support
    for free.

    UbuntuNebraska.info

    The best form of advertising I know of is word of mouth, and one of the best processes for working this advertising form is 'discipleship'. For years, I've been handing out my own email address to each and every person I meet who needed help with something Ubuntu related -- and I've helped several people become quite comfortable with Ubuntu.. but I'm only one person. Together, as a team, we can greatly simplify the process of obtaining support, provide support for a greater number of new users, and ensure that the growth of the Ubuntu community in Nebraska remains exponential.

    The most meaningful support one can provide is face to face and hands on support. One of our first steps should be to build a network capable of providing it. Places you can go to pick up a free official sleeved Ubuntu CD or get your Ubuntu laptop looked at, or even get Ubuntu installed for you. People who will drive to your house to help you if you're disabled, and people who will take phone calls to patiently explain the simplest things to beginners, right when they need them explained. I believe we have the resources to do this.

    As Ninja would say, LET'S KICK THIS PIG!

    TODO:

    Set channel topic in #ubuntu-us-ne to:
    Welcome to the Ubuntu Nebraska Local Community channel! Go ahead and state your question or problem, along with any information that could help us solve it. If you have to go before we can help, please leave a way for us to get back to you. Also, please consider using our forum.


    Add Forum link to ubuntunebraska.info

    Move Ubuntu Nebraska site to dedicated LoCo hosting with Canonical.

    Redirect alternate URLs to the same site, so if people get mixed up, they still end up where they want to be.

    Get a solid selection of reliable, enthusiastic contacts in the Omaha metro, and at least one in most areas of concentrated population across the state.


    There are some problems we'll need to overcome yet after we get that stuff done, but we'll take them on when we get there.
