    Meetup Ubuntu Ohio

    I am thinking about using Meetup to start a monthly Ubuntu group in Columbus Ohio. The idea would be to meet once a month and talk about Ubuntu. I was thinking maybe we could have how-to sessions, best programs for and other presentations. This could be a good way to get the word out and help new users learn how to use Ubuntu and other Foss programs.

    If this is something you would actually go to, let me know. It cost money to create the group. I have no problem paying the fee, but I would like to know it would be more than just me showing up

    I live in Columbus and would be interested in attending (even though I am not a member of any group and have limited knowledge)!

    Come to the Columbus Ubuntu hour!

    Every two Mondays, 6pm at the Panera on 11th & High (OSU South Campus Gateway). We'd love to see more people there.

    I went ahead and shelled out the cash to get the ball on the roll. I didn't realize there was already something going on in Columbus. Here is a link:

    http://www.meetup.com/Ubuntu-Stop/

    I am trying to set up something non-geeks will find helpful. I want this to be something we can bring our non-geek friends to. I see no point in preaching to the choir. The first meeting will be a meet-and-greet to get the ball rolling. For a discussion topic I thought we could go over installing Ubuntu Netbook Edition and the benefits of UNE over Windows (faster, more secure, etc) since I don't think anyone will be bringing their desktops

    This is going to be a monthly thing, we can try it for 6 months. I am going to have a donation jar as I would like to have a door prize if possible.

    The first meeting (April 14th BTW) will likely be at a coffee shop or the like, then I am going to try to schedule a room at the library after that.

    I signed up on your meetup. I'm fairly new to Ubuntu (been using it for about a year now), and would like to get more involved with the local Ohio community. I live in Circleville, but work at the ANG base in Rickenbacker.

    Be sure to sign up, we need to get an idea of where people are and how many might attend.
