    Lightbulb Proposed --> Chicago Ubuntu Team

    I'm interested in a Local Ubuntu Users Group for Chicago.
    My initial purpose of the group is local support and distribution of Ubuntu CD's

    I'm not looking to make this a weekly meeting type event but more of an online group that will help further Ubuntu's reach but like anything it can grow into whatever it needs to.

    [URL="https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ChicagoTeam"]

    post in the Wiki and email me so we can create an email dist. list.

    Re: Proposed --> Chicago Ubuntu Team

    I've found a number of Linux groups and have dropped in on one meeting. but I haven't found a Ubuntu specific group, nor was one listed in the Local groups WIKI. So I though I'd jump on it........ Anyway .

    Re: Proposed --> Chicago Ubuntu Team

    Hey,

    I'd be more than willing to help out. I wanted to get something like this going a while back but time was an issue. I've got http://ubuntuchicago.org/ (nothing but a default install). I'll gladly throw mediawiki up there.

    I'd like to get to the point of finding people for regular meetings, hackfests, etc.

    I am a Bears and Cubs fan does that count for anything?

    Re: Proposed --> Chicago Ubuntu Team

    HERE are a few images a couple of the Chicago guys have been messing around with in the #ubuntu-chicago IRC channel on freenode.net. There are quite a few people on freenode that are from the Chicago land area and could possibly be interested in having a Chicago Ubuntu LoCo. Come check out the IRC channel, as we are always in there camping out, waiting to do some work.

    We can brainstorm very easily in the irc channel which is nice. Plus on IRC there are many Ubuntu channels in which to help provide support to those with issues, the new guys, or people switching from Windows or Mac over to Linux. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    If you look around the wiki and take a look at the LoCoTeamList, you will notice there are a lot of well organized teams. Those teams took some time to create and get going, but they have been very successfull in the whole "Spreading Ubuntu" campaign. Chicago needs to help out, so this is the call.

    Greenwom started this badboy, and from my understanding he is pretty busy right now taking care of his career change. Let's step up and start brainstorming and working together, so when he can participate 100% we can have a good base to present him.

    Thanks everyone!!! And I will see you at the Taste next week!!!
