    Tucson Local Meet

    After the meeting today, the Tucson folks planned an actual, physical meet in Tucson; so, if you're a Tucsonan, feel free to drop by

    We'll be at Caffe Diva on Wednesday starting at about 1800-1830 (some will arrive earlier than others):
    2965 N Campbell Ave
    Tucson, AZ 85719
    Google Map to Caffe Diva

    Hope to see you there!

    DX: If you'd be interested in organizing something like this, I'd recommend adding it to the agenda for our next meeting; the agenda is freely editable on the wiki. That's how we got it done for Tucson; and I wouldn't count on too many Phoenix folks looking into the "Tucson Local Meet" thread.

    Heh, yeah. Seems to be a common problem; we were doing this on a Wednesday so that ToddB could join us (he's busy after Wednesday, and then leaves to go back home to CA), but in the future we'll probably do weekends.

    As for rides, there's bound to be someone who can help you... parental help, well, there are lots of Linux advocacy sites out there...

    Our meet went well; we had five attendees, and sat around and discussed for a few hours, met each other, had some fun. Here's a picture:

    Yep, us techies are a bit freaky-looking. One of the workers took the picture for us

    As to what was discussed, we talked a bit about the server and what we thought of that/what we were doing with it (pretty much the same discussion that happens any time the server's brought up); we also talked a bit about getting some of our newer members onto projects, and about br24's scouting of other LoCos; specifically, we were thinking at the next IRC meeting we'd discuss posting something to make people 'official' members, along the lines of "Lives in Arizona some portion of the year, interested in supporting Ubuntu." Nothing that hasn't been brought up at IRC meetings or on the forums, though. We didn't want to decide anything without the rest of the state
