Hi Everyone: Randall sent me a reminder about the Ubuntu Global Jam the
weekend after next, Friday to Sunday, 1-3 March 2013.  So far, there
aren't any Canadian Global Jam events listed at

There's an Ubuntu Hour in Kitchener on Friday, 1 March, but considering
the venue (Egg Roll King is a small, busy restaurant) the only Global
Jam activity there will be copying the Raring Ringtail Alpha 2 to your
thumb drive (I'll bring an .iso image on my computer). Neither Darcy nor
I are available to run a Jam in K-W, but there's a possibility Kwartzlab
is available if a Kwartzlab member can be persuaded to host.

A global jam doesn't require programming skills. Just install the latest Ubuntu release, and report any bugs or incompatibilities you run into. There's a list of other activities at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGlobalJam 

Running a Global Jam isn't that much more involved than running an
Ubuntu Hour. You'll definitely want a venue with Internet connectivity
and electrical power, and you'll probably want to work for at least
three or four hours (but longer is OK too!). 

If you're holding a Jam somewhere in Canada let me know, and I can add
it to the calendar if you want.

The *Ubuntu Global Jam* is getting close(r). Have you registered an
event in your city/town yet? If you have, thanks! And if not, please
do!! The official event is happening *March 1, 2, and 3rd* 2013. (You
can of course register a different date sometime in March depending on
your local circumstances.)

The Ubuntu Global Jam is one of the best ways to bring people together
that enjoy Ubuntu. Not only that, but because of this unique point in
Ubuntu's history, we are all in a position to show something fun:
*Ubuntu Phones* and *Ubuntu Tablets*.

If you, or someone you know, has an Ubuntu-ready phone or tablet, please
encourage them to bring it to an Ubuntu Global Jam event. This is a
great way to build enthusiasm for the project and also to let people see
first-hand what they've so far only been able to see in photos and
videos. Nothing is better than a live demo for excitement!

*If you anticipate Ubuntu Phones or Ubuntu Tablets being at your Global
Jam event, please add the words /"//phone"/ or /"tablet"/ (or both) to
the event description field on your event.* We plan on showcasing events
that are giving demos.

And if you haven't yet registered an event, please do so ASAP. If you're
not an organizer, please find one! :) The place to register your event
is here:


If you have any questions or difficulties adding your event to the above
page, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. That's what I'm here for.

Thanks for your attention and let's get Jamming!
