Random Things

I’ve been keeping myself pretty busy lately with several things going on.

The Ubuntu Maryland Local Community Team will be starting plans for Software Freedom Day on September 19th soon. The tentative thoughts are to have a similar event to what we did last year with a day of tutorials and discussion on Free and Open Source software. This event will be targeted at end users and cover as many topics as we can. Please feel free to email sfd09 at if you have any thoughts or ideas for this year’s event!

Unfortunately due to a scheduling issue and my only being able to be in one place at one time I’ll be unable to attend this week’s Ubuntu MD team meeting. It will be at the Howard County Library Central branch from 7-9pm. For those that attend let me know how things go!

Peg introduced (putting it nicely;)) me to a walking group called American Volkssport Association. Its a group that has various events both manned and unmanned throughout the US. We went to our first meeting of the local group last week and Saturday we did our longest walk via the organization at 6k. So if you’re into walking and want to find some walks in your area check to see if you can find a group near you. They give out patches for various themed walks!

    Hi Jono. I’m sure we will be doing something again this time around for the event. I don’t know what the plan is yet, but we have a little time to work on it:)
