There was some mention in the #ubuntu-us channel a few nights ago about having an online party one night during Ubuntu Live. This will allow for those of us that can not make it to Portland to feel like we can participate.

Is there any interest as a team for us to meet somewhere in person and then participate online together?

The dates for Ubuntu Live is July 22- 24. For more information on Ubuntu Live see http://www.ubuntulive.com/.
