Announcing the Ubuntu Web Presence Team

Hello Ubuntu Community,

How would you like to help make the Ubuntu website a thing of great
beauty? If so, here's your chance. There is a newly created Ubuntu Web
Presence team recruiting members. If you're excited about web
technologies now you can help out. Some of the tasks this team will
tackle include:

 * New countdown banners for the releases
 * Contribute to the start page that users see when they first load
Ubuntu (
 * Allow localization of key portions of the Ubuntu website
 * Use your javascript, python or PHP coding skills to create exciting
new features
 * Design a visually engaging website experience
 * Enable more people in the community to help out
 * And more... the possibilities are limitless!

Presently, the Ubuntu website is managed by a very small group of
people, mostly Canonical employees. We'd like to open this up so that
a team of talented and trustworthy community members can help define
the website experience. This is your opportunity!

Sign up now by joining the Web Presence Team's mailing list and
introducing yourself.

I can't wait to begin!

Matthew Nuzum,
Ubuntu Webmaster
