What now feels to be an eternity ago, Mark Shuttleworth in a Community
Council session, http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/2008/09/02/%

22:09  in terms of audience, i think we have to aim for young
professionals who are web-savvy

22:14  if we are ambitious, we want to serve all human beings

22:15  so, the only reason i focused on young web-savvy professionals is
they will be the standard-bearers for taking ubuntu to a wider audience

22:15  and they are probably attracted to particular ideas in design
like the iphone used web 2.0 ideas


That happened only because I asked.

There seems to be reluctance to define an audience or at least no
interest in documenting it.
