Forums. I use them only for support but I am aware of community and
some news material that has been posted there.

There is also Full Circle Magazine although as I understand it, it is
not tied to any of the teams, certainly not the news team which does
UWN and the Fridge.

This is the right place for Fridge improvement ideas. I did some
gardening of the wiki pages yesterday so all of the ideas are now on
one page.

LoCos are part of the Fridge's target audience (although this was only
formally documented in the last few months).  See

I see a lot of these on personal, non-planet blogs. Even the ubuntu
users blogs.  And flickr.
It would be great to see these pooled somehow.  We'll see what we can
come up with for the Fridge.
Has anyone thought of expanding the LoCo planet idea?


ps if I get approval for Newz's time, we'll probably have a hack
session in July.
