    Arrow Ubuntu Hours in California

    Ubuntu is a world-class operating system that makes computing easy and simple. But starting out can be intimidating. Ubuntu Hour makes it easy to get started.

    Your local Ubuntu Hour is a time and place where some Ubuntu users get together to chat for a bit and have some coffee or tea. They are more than happy to talk to you about what Ubuntu is, answer any questions, provide a free CD so you can try or install it, and help you get things up and running. They can also share some of the tips and tricks they've used to make their computers more convenient.

    You're free to join us at any of the times below. Say hi and feel free to bring a portable computer if you have it.

    Current Ubuntu Hour events in California:

    Re: Joins us for Ubuntu Hour in Lake Forest!

    Going to start this slow because I'm not sure how much time I can commit in the coming weeks, but I'll be hosting an Ubuntu Hour in San Francisco next week:

    Date: Tuesday, June 22nd

    Time: 6-7PM

    Location: The Roastery
    199 New Montgomery St
    (between Natoma St & Howard St)
    San Francisco, CA 94105

    This is not too far from Thirsty Bear, where we hosted the Lucid release party. They have sandwiches, free wifi and standard coffee shop drinks.

    The coffee shop isn't very big, so you shouldn't have trouble finding me - I'll be wearing an Ubuntu t-shirt and have a pink netbook with Ubuntu stickers on it

    Smile Joins us for Ubuntu Hour in Lake Forest!

    Hello everyone!

    I'm holding an Ubuntu Hour in Lake Forest, CA. The general idea is that we meet up for an hour someplace public wearing with some Ubuntu stuff visible (some clothing or a sticker or something) and just chat for an hour. The next two dates are:

    Thursday, June 10th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
    Thursday, June 17th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm

    Not only will it be fun to meet local Ubuntu fans, but we can also be a visible source of information about Ubuntu. As such, we'll be following the Ubuntu Code of Conduct which is just good common sense in a public setting anyhow.

    So I'm going to be at the Panera Bread restaurant in Lake Forest at 6pm until 7pm. They have pretty decent food and free wi-fi access. I'll have my laptop and an Ubuntu hat and shirt, so please feel free to come up and say hi.

    I'll also be there every Thursday for June and July. At that time I'll evaluate whether or not the experiment was a success, and if it was, we'll keep on going. Last week was an incredible success and I can't wait to see who shows up tonight! Hope to see you there!

    Re: Ubuntu Hours in California

    This summer's series of Ubuntu Hour events in Lake Forest, California continues tonight at Panera. It's been nice meeting and chatting with everyone who's made it. The general idea is that we meet up for an hour someplace public wearing with some Ubuntu stuff visible (some clothing or a sticker or something) and just chat for an hour. The next two dates are:

    Thursday, July 8th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
    Thursday, July 15st, 2010, 6pm - 7pm

    Not only will it be fun to meet local Ubuntu fans, but we can also be a visible source of information about Ubuntu. As such, we'll be following the Ubuntu Code of Conduct [1] which is just good common sense in a public setting anyhow.

    So I'm going to be at the Panera Bread restaurant in Lake Forest at 6pm until 7pm. They have pretty decent food and free wi-fi access. I'll have my laptop and an Ubuntu hat and shirt, so please feel free to come up and say hi. It's also a good chance to bring along friend who are curious about Ubuntu.

    I'llbe there every Thursday this month. After that time I'll evaluate whether or not the experiment was a success, and if it was, we'll keep on going. Hope to see you there!

    Sometimes Google Maps doesn't like the address itself, so you can use this link to see the correct location on Google Maps - http://ur1.ca/0cec5
