View Full Version : Plans for another UBZ?

(For some backround (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBelowZero))

Having missed the last UBZ are there any plans for another (also in Montréal svp)?

BTW: If you find yourself in Montréal go get lunch at the Bar-B-Barn. Really good bbq and cheap. Montréal gets a bad rap but it's a really cool place. Of course an UBZ West in Vancouver might be fun.

Also watch out for the drivers (http://kartvader.com/) up there. =)

Another suggestion is an UAZ (Ubuntu Above Zero) in Cambridge, MA* in the summer. Groups used to be able to reserve a block of rooms at McCormick Hall (the only same sex dorm at MIT but groups could have both) for much cheaper than the local hotels. Clean place with a million dollar view of the Charles River. Lots of choices though.

Montréal still seems like IMO the best choice (for North America). How about something like a cross between UBZ and "What the Hack (http://wiki.whatthehack.org/index.php/Main_Page)" (in the summer of course).

* I realize that there are many people that would rather not have it in or go to the US right now. Sadly I understand. Canada seems like the logical choice anyways.

Well, I would go if someone would donate enough money for me to travel to the US/canada. An airplane ticket from Norway isn't cheap:-P

The next Ubuntu developer summit (the one for Edgy) starts in three days in Paris.

"The next Ubuntu developer summit (the one for Edgy) starts in three days in Paris."

Don't get me wrong, if i thought there was a chance in the world that my better half wouldn't kill me for hopping a flight over there I'd go.

"Honey, I'm off to Paris for a few days. Can I get you something like a t-shirt or ..."

My thought is something much lighter than UDS for the North American crowd.
