View Full Version : Make your Ubuntu video - win $100

August 14th, 2006, 12:10 PM
We’ve all seen how cool technologies - such as Ruby on Rails (http://www.rubyonrails.com/) - have wowed people through video.
Ubuntu Video (http://www.ubuntuvideo.com/) is a new blog that can do the same for our favourite operating system. John Little, the site’s creator, hunts down Ubuntu-related movies and links to them using YouTube.
He told The Fridge what motivated him to get the site online:

Video allows us to dispel the old Linux myths: that it’s difficult, command line driven, there are no games for it, that sort of thing. I want Ubuntu users to flood the internet with videos that demonstrate the truth!
John’s even running a competition to find the best in Ubuntu Video (http://www.ubuntuvideo.com/could_you_use_a_hundred_bucks). He’s offering $100 to the winner and makes some suggestions as to what you might make:

Record your own Ubuntu commercial.
Show us how you use Ubuntu in a unique way or place.
Record an instructive screencast.
Make a mini documentary about free software.
Go to a major retailer and ask to by a PC with Ubuntu pre-installed. Take your camera.
Show us your linux gaming rig.Enter the competition at UbuntuVideo.com (http://www.ubuntuvideo.com/) or get involved in this and similar projects by joining the Ubuntu Marketing mailing list (https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-marketing).
