Install fests are times when you go out to meet new people in the area and help with installing Linux on their computer system. I want to do something radically different.
I want to set up a day where we perform an install fest across the state of Missouri. Set up some time in colleges, to work with installing the latest Ubuntu. I'm thinking this would be best suited for installing 8.04 so we can plan the events state wide.
To pull this off is going to take quite a bit of coordination, planning, and communication. Do we have anyone in the MarketingTeam who can help with the "presentation" value? We also need people from the various areas to look into school scheduling. The best time to do this would be in the middle of the week so as to catch as many interested users as possible.
One idea I have, pull together all of the states to get involved. Instead of making it state wide only, make it happen across the nation. It would definitely turn a few heads.
What are your thoughts on something like this?
