Hello there I am thinking about holding a ubuntu hour once a month.
what I am looking for.
anyone that is from upstate newyork that would like to start there own ubuntu hour also.
people in

what is ubuntu hour ?

The Ubuntu Hour
The idea behind Ubuntu Hour is *public*! We are trying to promote Ubuntu to the general public and getting them wondering what else is out there.

Head over to a public place (like a local coffee shop, etc) where you'll hang out for 1 hr. every week or every other week, you decide.
Wear something with the Ubuntu logo or have a visible Ubuntu sticker on your laptop (if you bring one).
When/if you show up, you agree to the Ubuntu Code of Conduct.
Anyone can start an Ubuntu Hour, anywhere, anytime.
Remember this is a social event, be approachable!
Keep it simple. Don't make this "How" section any longer than it needs to be. Just add your Ubuntu Hour below, including location (address+city), day of week + hour, and your name, maybe a link.

Don't forget to document! Let your LoCo know about your event, blog about it, write in a mailing list, or any other way you can. If you are a team contact, make sure your event is listed in the LoCo directory.

I will be heading up the Rochester loco group are ubuntu hour.
so what I am trying to do is start this up across the state. Not just here in Rochester. So if you are from one of those city's
please post here with your thoughts or pm me ect.

when and where

well for the first ubuntu hour here in rochester I would like to do it the 2nd Saturday of each month.
I am still looking for a place I have a couple options open and will be posting them soon. (just want to double check)

So what do you say New Yorkers ? lets start a Ubuntu hour
thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
