After all the talk on the Digest about the Ubuntu Toronto Meetings I
thought it would be good to share with everyone what the meetings are like.
On Wednesday night I drove from Port Perry so I arrived at the end of
the around the table introductions. The members were in a good mood and
no one made fun of the fact that it took so many attempts to get me to
Dave Sullivan chaired the meeting, took minutes of the meeting and
projected them onto the overhead screen. It is a great way to
illustrate just what is happening with a project. During the
presentations portion of the evening, the laptops were closed and
everyone seemed to be listening and contributing to the discussion.
Dave guided us through the agenda and made certain that everyone was
heard from who wanted to be heard. When we finished the last part of
the agenda, the laptops went on and it was a free-for-all of experience
sharing and question answering. We even got to watch a three minute
video on Linux.
Food is delivered hot to your table, which is a very nice touch, and
the staff were careful not to interrupt the meeting .
The members seemed to hang around and chat until David had to nudge us
out the door, which is a good sign. I think the meeting went very well.
Not everyone is in these photos, I didn't take out the camera until
after the formal presentation part of the meeting was over, and some
people had to leave early to attend other meetings.
I think the discussion on the Digest helped.
